The power of the GeForce GTX 560 GPU is brought out by this overclocked graphics card from Asus. It beats the stock-clocked Ti variant (GTX 560 Ti) in performance in many cases despite having lesser shader muscle. The cooler does a great job too....

NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 560 non-Ti sets out to fill the void in NVIDIA's lineup at $200. While GTX 560 Ti performs great around $230, its price does turn away some potential customers who will find a good alternative with AMD's $200 HD...

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 (non-Ti) is launched to fill the price and performance gap between the GTX 460 1GB and GTX 560 Ti cards. This new GPU is a cut-down version of the Ti insofar as it has a portion of the processing core removed or disabled....

So how does the latest addition to the Fermi line-up do?We think surprisingly well. Of course it's a surprise to see the 'standard' version coming out after the Ti, but now it's here there is a lot going for it as a good value...

Høsten 2009 lanserte AMD deres Radeon HD 5870, det som var startskuddet for DirectX 11-generasjonen med skjermkort. Siden den gangen har både AMD og Nvidia sluppet og komplementert to serier hver. AMD har satset på å fylle hele...
