  1. Nvidia has announced a special edition graphics card just in time for the holidays. The GTX 560 Ti with 448 CUDA cores is positioned squarely between the existing GTX 560…

    Wha? This is not a 560 Ti variant, this is a 570 SE. I think Nvidia just didn't want to use the SE moniker after the GTX 460 slow edition jokes.
  3. I wanna upgrade my 470 and although I think this out performs the 470 it's not a wide enough margin to make spending just under 3 bills worth it. What do you guys think?

    btw lol @ slow edition. :p

    The SE monkier is deffinately one that screams inferior/mediocre.
  4. Crazy when you can get a GTX 570 for the same price.

    A quick look on websites here in the UK shows the GTX 560 Ti 448 retailing for £239 and the GTX 570 retailing for..... £239!

    Like Princeton said, this 560 ti uses the GF 110 chip, same as the 570...this is a 570 SE...an overpriced one at that.

    This thing has the same amount of shader cores as the 470, I can't imagine why you'd even consider it as an upgrade. This is mostly for people who are still on last gen GT 200 cards or the lower end 400-500s (440-460, 550, etc).

  10. I can get a full gtx 570 for just 40 dollars more.
  11. The moniker I use for SE is the sh** edition

    Eh, at this point I'd rather go for a 6950. Even though I like Nvidia better.

    I'd have to agree. For $269 I got a Sapphire 6950 2GB that unlocks to a 6970 by flipping a switch. In BF3 I get the same framerates as a GTX 580 as long as I don't use MSAA, except I spent only slightly more than half the cost of a 580. I think it was worth the AA tradeoff and I don't regret my decision a single bit.

    I've even seen some @gb versions for $250, I think I'll be selling my dual GTX465s and upgrading to two 6950s, regardless they can be unlocked. If they can be, it's just a bonus. :D
