is this another %10 more power efficient card that needs a more powerful PSU than stock model? if so then no, its not "green"

edit: 600w power supply required, according to product page. seems just like the other announced a few days ago.

Did we just have the SAME P.R. ANNOUNCEMENT just a couple of days ago? I don't think they deserve multiple announcements. One for GTX 560, and then another for GTX 560 Ti.

yea there's nothing green about the two models. the 10% is negated by the extra 100w or so they require, and the fact the psu they recommend is only bronze cert. wtf.

And the 6870 is still better in performance vs. watts.

dont forget the tissue paper biodegradable box that it comes inside and the rice paper user manual... i mean at the end of the day extreme gamers like to recycle and are worried about their power consumption and carbon footprint while they are tending to their vegetable patch and knitting yoghurt outside in the field with the chickens and cows

In my happy graphics cards world, green cards come from the green team and red cards come from the red team.

my 9800GT ECO is considered a green card. works great and is flashed to full 9800 clocks and then some. Not a bad card and worked great in my mini ITX setup until it was replaced by a non-green GTX470. these card have there place and i would have preferred to see this with no external connectors on it. until that happens its not a green card...
