Gainward GTX 560 2GB reviewed - 9. Crysis 2

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: GTX560 1GB vs GTX560 2GB


Crysis 2

We couldn’t see a performance difference between the GTX 560 cards despite using high-res textures. Still, we noticed during gaming that Gainward’s GTX 560 2048MB exhibited no stutters whatsoever, which wasn’t the case with the 1024MB version. GPUZ shows that Crysis 2 likes a hefty frame buffer, as the GTX 560 1024MB’s tends to be completely filled out.

As you can see from the picture below, even the GTX 560 2048MB’s memory buffer was filled out at one moment.

Gainward Geforce GTX 560 2048MB "Phantom" The Phantom is designed for those with a taste for maximum silence. Although factory overclocked by only 12MHz, powerful Phantom cooling will have you covered if you decide to push the card further. Core Clock 822 MHz Memory Size 1,024 MB

Waste of money. Buy the AMD equivalent performer for FAR LESS money.

so, other than metro at 2560, the extra gig is 100% useless, as is the 560 itself in metro at 2560, regardless...

Anyone playing metro 2033 @ 1600p needs 3 gtx 580 in sli just to get smooth gameplay @ max settings not a the gtx 560 with extra ram lol!
I feel like extra ram on any gpu is always over priced for the lack of perfomance gain anayway!

This is the same case for a gtx 580 with 3 gigs priced @ $100 or even more than vanilla flavor!

Ram these days costs very cheap ( for example brand name corsair 16 gigs for less than $100)

This is where gpu companies are making their profits from the naive.

This GTX560 is mercifully short, and thus a good fit for small footprint systems with decent performance.
