Gainward working on GTX 560 Ti Phantom

Written by Slobodan Simic

Double the memory

It appears that Gainward is working on two more cards that will be a part of it Phantom Edition series, and as you could have guessed, they are based on the new GTX 560 Ti GPU. According to our info, Gainward will be rolling out both the 1GB and 2GB GTX 560 Ti Phantom cards.

As far as we know the Gainward GTX 560 Ti 1024MB Phantom Edition card will work at 835MHz for the GPU, 1670MHz for shaders and 4100MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory. The 2GB version of the same card will apparently use the reference clock settings set at 822/1645/4008, but we guess that it should overclock pretty good.

The card will use Gainward's Phantom2 (Phantom Quadratic) cooler with two GR8 8cm fans, four heatpipes and a design that is quite similar to the other Phantom Edition cards. According to Gainward, the card should be up to 13.1dB quieter and up to 11°C when compared to the cooler on the reference GTX 470 card.

The cards are already listed in Europe with the lowest price tag set at €247,52 for the 1GB version and €371,28 for the 2GB GTX 560 Ti Phantom. We guess that the prices will be a bit lower once other retailers/e-tailers get this card.

The 2GB card sounds really good! But I want a completely black PCB and NO f*cking VGA port!

If the cards needed more memory wouldn't they have it from the start?

This is seems like marketing to set them out from the crowd, you will not see any benefit from 2GB over 1GB and the RAM will probably not overlock as much because of the extra heat, not to mention the price premium you will pay for all this.

Why should more ram capacity make more heat if it got the same clocks ?

What i dont get is the price, 370 bucks for 2GB version is crazy.

because the cooler is so big some might not be able to SLI ,which most would want to do in the first place.

Why would more radiators in a house make the house warmer?

ram barely needs cooling at all (passive), so how should it make any srs difference ? Specially with a better cooler, 2GB should actually be minimum for FullHD > cards like this but for the price, there are way better options, so its an other fail fermi. A faster 460 that consumes lesser and got a decent price would be much more usufull :/

Considering the fact that AMD just lowered their prices across the board when this card was released, just proved that their cards were waaay overpriced upon release...just last month! They totally ripped off the fanboys...again!!

there is deffinetly an error or missunderstandi ng about the prices. 1gb or 2gb should not make any difference in costs or end price (like in HD 6950 case - max 20 euro difference). 2 gb version 271 euro (not 371) - maybe.

Thats just how it goes, if there is no competition then there is no reason to lower prices, since most fermis suck, amd is pretty nice with the prices anyway.

Maybe or they just let it stay that high so the fanboys will be like "AMG 2GB !11"
Compared to the other phantom card, this one doesnt even look good, the red pcb is ugly.
