Review: Where did the 'Ti' go? 


 

Gainward GTX 560 Phantom is almost 19cm long and it sports high performance Phantom series cooler.

Gainward's new card is 2.5 slots wide whereas the reference card is two slots wide.

Phantom cooler comes with 4 heatpipes and two 80mm fans. The fans are placed inside the large heatsink so a glance at the card would suggest that the card is passively cooled.

 The fans are very quiet so we guess there would be no harm in assuming that.

As far as video outs go, Gainward decided to go with one dual link DVI, HDMI and VGA out. Note that only two video outs can be used simultaneously.

Reference GTX 560 card comes with two dual-link DVIs and a mini HDMI connector so if you're keen on using the standard HDMI, you'll need the mini-HDMI-to-HDMI adapter.

GTX 560 comes with one SLI connector. This means you can combine up to two GTX 560 cards in SLI mode for improved performance or image quality settings.

The card has two 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors.

The Gainward Geforce GTX 560 Phantom uses 1024 MB video memory. The chips used are K4G10325FE-HC04 parts from Samsung. They are specified to run at 1250 MHz (5000 MHz GDDR5 effective).

OnSemi's NCP5395T is a cost-effective voltage regulator. It does not offer I2C voltage control, but VID based control is available through API in NVIDIA's driver.

Love the look of those phantom cooler's. The red PCB is kind of strange.
