EVGA GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Classified tested - Conclusion

Review: Limited Edition Product

 

The GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Classified is a special version of a special graphics card. Most of all, it is special for the fact that Nvidia will neither make many of them nor launch them all across the globe. According to Nvidia, the cards will only launch in USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Russia and Nordic countries. Unless the company decides otherwise, the GTX 560 Ti 448 ores will be available for a few months around the New Year, so if you want it – you better be quick.

Nidia did not launch the reference design of its graphics card, allowing its partners to play with it and tailor the card to their own needs. The GTX 560 Ti Cores is based on the GF110, unlike the standard GTX 560 Ti that’s based on the GF114. Thanks to hardware similarities, the GF110 can be used with existing GTX 570 designs or on PCBs used for GTX 480 cards, which is exactly what EVGA did. The upside is that the card has 6 phase PWM design as well as 6 pin and 8 pin connectors. This practically means that the card will definitely never lack power.

Thankfully, the GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Classified’s cooler has nothing to do with the GTX 480’s, which was too loud for anyone’s taste. In fact, the Classified is moderately quiet, even when running under load.

EVGA’s advantage over the rest of the GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores pack is the factory overclock, where the company upped GPU clocks from 732MHz to 797MH and the GDDR5 memory from 3800MHz to 3900MHz. We’ve seen that this factory overclock allows the GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Classified to beat the GTX 570 in many tests.

The reference GTX 570 Ti 448 Cores is priced at about €250, whereas EVGA priced the Classified at €275. The most affordable GTX 570 goes for €270, which is why we’d advise you to wait at least a bit. Namely, prices haven’t been adjusted yet and EVGA’s web portal lists the Classified at $299.99 and the most affordable GTX 570 at $344.99.

If you happen to find the Classified priced lower than the GTX 570 then don’t waste time and buy it before they’re off the market. As far as performance goes, the card is really a great gaming card that no gamer would say no to.

uhm kinda lousy OC.

pretty much all 570 gtx clocks to at least 925 mhz on 1.1v. i had some at 1 ghz (custom pcbs, but air), and NONE below 900 mhz (i tested like 10-12 different 570's)

maybe these cards aint that good afterall .. they are not even performing 580 stock speeds at max OC, and 570 GTX does that easily - around 875-900 mhz

it's just i think they gonna price too close to 570 gtx to be worth it
