Colorful Launches the Most Powerful and Feature-Rich GeForce GTX 560 Ti

After showing off the PCB of the new design GTX560Ti days before, Colorful today releases this new graphics card and named iGame GTX560Ti Kudan.

iGame GTX560Ti Kudan requires three slots and assembles three fans, one is 80mm, and the other two are 70mm which with "Shark Bionic" design in order to reduce the noise. Users need to remove the cooler to install the expansion card on the obverse side near the rear plate. Both WHDI card and Television Card are available to be installed independently to satisfy users' requirement.

There are two BIOS onboard and each of them stores a clock, and the different clocks are controlled by the button on the rear plate. When users press the button, the clock will be overclocked to 900MHz/4200MHz from default clock (820MHz/4000MHz). However, when you install the extra Power-Kit into the slot on the back of the PCB, the clock will change to the amazing 1010MHz/4500MHz.

The iGame GTX560Ti Kudan has the unprecedented in dimensions of the packaging, which is up to 820mm (H) X165mm (L) X140mm (W), and with Chinese characters on it. With the huge packaging, there are three sets of accessories provided, and the quantity of the items is more than 20.
The first set is called Air-Kit, which is assembled by five detachable heat pipes that draw heat from the main heatsink. The Air-Kit can be installed to the corresponding position that previously prepared on the graphics card, and can efficiently reduce the heat of the graphics card.

The second set is called Power-Kit, which is introduced in the previous paragraph. The Power-Kit provides extra six phases of VRM, and have a "Monster BIOS" equipped. It is the first choice when users overclock this card after installing the Power-Kit.

The third set is called Color-Kit, which is made up by acrylic paints and brushes. It is provided for those users who have interest of painting on the shell of the cooler.

The expansion WHDI card and Television card for the front PCB slot is not provided in the accessories, Colorful may sell them separately latter. The retail price of iGame GTX560Ti Kudan is not mentioned at present.

Unless it's guaranteed to hit 1200MHz core on the stock heatsink, that's quite a waste for a 560Ti. I still want one though.

There might not be such a thing as overkill when it comes to PC hardware, but if there was, this would be it.

The 500 series runs incredibly cool, this cooler is a waste of time.

Colorful seams to be trying to produce the most over the top cards possible but i like it.

I wish they were doing things like this with 580's, would be nice if they moved in to AMD cards as well.

I think you're exaggerating a bit.

This is like buying a Ford Fiesta with gold alloys and a 2.4 litre engine with 2 extra doors and a sail on top. I mean come on, wtf?

It's like colorful employ a mentalist to come up with ideas and they just say yeah, that'll be different.

"Yeah, a three slot cooler with an extra cooling kit so nothing else can fit in your expansion slots, great idea".

"Yeah, an extra card you can plug in to make it go over 1GHz but you have to disassemble it first, great idea".

"Paints, a painting kit? Yeah, that's great - let's put some paints in with it too."

"Include a spoon and some tin foil and they can smoke crack from it's obverse side, great idea".*

I may be harsh but why pimp out a 560 to such incontestably ludicrous amounts?

*I'm not sure how you smoke crack. Thankfully.

And I have to ask: Why? :confused:

Seriously, the 560 is not even a high end card, who would pay a premium for it? mind you it's not even the 448 core version.... :wtf:

WHAT?

At current exchange rates that would make this card ~ £340 or roughly about the same price as a GTX580 and over twice that of a GTX560TI......

I say again; WHAT?

Does anyone notice the size of the box compared to the card inside it? It must be at least a meter long!

Why are all these overpriced cards surfacing all of a sudden...first Powercolor's Devil and now this. I don't really see the point in this. If I wanted to paint a card, I'd just buy paint?

Wonderful grammar. :rolleyes: You'd think they'd make the effort to get that right on a press release, wouldn't you? The writer's first language at Colorful obviously isn't English and hasn't learned it properly.

It's cool to me, very aggressive looking and thermal dissipators, but i prefer without that paint idea...
