Review: Breathing down GTX 560 Ti's neck  

 


Overclocking

Point of View / TGT Geforce GTX 560 Ultra Charged comes factory overclocked.

We managed to push the GPU to 970MHz, which is pretty much a maximum you can squeeze out from the GF114 on GTX 560 cards.

Although we didn't manage to hit constantly stable 1GHz, GTX 560 Ultra Charged allowed us to enjoy the following.

Afterburner recorded an interesting thing -- after the instability caused by the 1000MHz clock, the card downclocked to 900MHz. The app we were running at the time didn't crash.


Thermals and Noise


You'll hear the fan during gaming but it is pretty quiet when idle. Pushing the card to 970MHz resulted in temperatures up to 92°C, whereas 900MHz operation saw temperatures up to 86°C.

FUAD gave us a very pretty one-liner pertaining to the noise levels.

Looking at the cooler (looks like it's the GTX 460 stock cooler) and the fan measurements (1900 rpm in idle and 3000 rpm under load) I'm just gonna go ahead and say that the card seems to be rather loud.

Especially the fact that fuad calls 1900rpm "pretty quiet" kinda bugs me. On a fan that size, "quiet" is below 1200rpm at best... 1900rpm is a long way off.
