Review: GTX560 1GB vs GTX560 2GB

Overclocking

Overclocking the GF114 should not be a problem, regardless of whether it’s reference or specially designed GTX 560 Ti or GTX 560. Most GTX 560 Ti cards will run stable at 920+MHz. Gainward’s cooling provides a nice foundation for a healthy overclock and we got the following results. We managed to push the GPU from 810MHz to 930MHz. The memory ran at 1200MHz.

Thermals

The GTX 560 2GB is almost inaudible,. The card isn’t much louder than the reference cards when the GPU is under load, but we expected it to be quieter or at least the same.

Power Consumption


Consumption is in line with reference GTX 560 cards, mostly due to the fact that Gainward GTX 560 2048MB runs at reference clocks.
