NVIDIA Prepares GeForce GTX 560 SE to Thwart Radeon HD 7770

For an immediate relief from the market-threat looming in the sub-$200 segment with the introduction of AMD's Radeon HD 7770, NVIDIA is planning to carve out a new SKU based on the 40 nm GF114 GPU, the GeForce GTX 560 SE. The new SKU will be positioned below the GeForce GTX 560 (non-Ti), and target price-points well within $200. The new SKU is identical to the OEM-only model GeForce GTX 555. Its specifications follow:
  • Based on 40 nm GF114 ASIC
  • 288 CUDA cores
  • 48 TMUs, 24 ROPs
  • 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface
  • 1 GB standard memory amount (asymmetric memory chip arrangement à la GTX 550 Ti)
  • Clock speeds: 776 MHz core; 1553 MHz CUDA cores; 952 MHz (3.828 GHz effective) memory, 92 GB/s memory bandwidth

This just like my GTX 460 SE, except this one has only 24ROPs and 192bit memory interface (GTX 460 SE has 32ROPs and 256 bit memory) and obviously higher clocks @stock

nV are in a PR mess. They neeed to buy in some decent PR and product management guys... or outsource their PR to a different provider.

nV are literally [U]throwing[/U] their goodwill away with bullsh1t like this. They will be known as a brand and product range not to be trusted.
They havent been trusted since G92... Then fermi.

This Launch has Nv scrambling like they were swarmed by Japanese Hornets to the European Honeybee.

I remember asking once if they could just do an asymmetric arrangement to get a regular number of ram and everybody was all like "nooo that's impossible, dumbass."

It may have been impossible with previous architectures. What's a regular number of RAM?

Will it have 7770 power consumption? I really doubt it.

"Regular" like the numbers people are use to with system and vram. 128/256/512/1024/2048/4096

Never ever buy a SE version of Nvidia card. I call it the Sh!t Edition. If you want a NV card, buy the full price - full version card. Then you really enjoy the performance.

I had to register because of this. This has to be the dumbest comment of the year this far.

You cant be serious?

What kind of market would it be if the only competition AMD has is themselves?

Go back to your fanboy dungeon where you belong.
Chill out man, we just tend to ignore the mega fanboys/n00bs. :roll:

sooo

560 SE
560
560 TI
560 TI 448

Why nvidia?
If you think about it, they only have a 3 digit numbering system as opposed to AMD's 4. And both brands don't use the last digit so nVidia only has a 2 digit system really. Since 570 and 550 are already taken, what else were they gonna do?

I have no idea on how this is related to anything in this thread. :roll:

The good looking sister is still healing from the plastic surgey so they send out the older, less atractive sister in a nice dress :rolleyes:

This kind of bullshit helped me never to buy something from them since my 8800GT - maybe the most rebranded card in history... Good job Nvidia - continue to point me in the right direction.

I dont think there was any room for this one in the 5series. Greens should be looking forward to 6series and they did another cut job again. not impressive at all

Wow Nvidia has fallen this far.
This would explain AMD arrogance with their crappy 7770 and the rest of the AMD 7*** prices, AMD knows there is no competition left in NVidia and that Nvidia will never be able to recover.
Nvidia just fire all your staff and declare bankruptcy to safe us all the effort of reading another NVidia news post. :nutkick:
What the HELL have you been smoking? You're talking about the company that pulled the GTX 580 out their ass with a leak only three days before it hard launched.

Please, never post on this forum again. :shadedshu

Hey, the MX series was decent. My GeForce2 MX 400 whooped the ass of everyone else I knew.

I dunno, call it the GTX555 like they have done for the OEM market?!

Nvidia do use the third digit; GTX465, GTX555, GT545, GT555m, GT435m, GT445m, GTX275, GTX285 are all examples of them going exactly this.

TBH they should have called the GTX555 the GTX560 SE as it is a GF114 derivative not a GF116 one. Mind you a totaly screwed up naming scheme is nothing new to Nvidia, you only have to look at the complete cluster **** that is their mobile lineup naming scheme to see this. They have 3 different performing mobile GPU's all called the GT555m....

To be fair AMD arn't much better in this regard. Once we moved past the excellent 4xxx moblility series things went down hill fast. For those who don't know the 4850m and 4870m were identical to their desktop counterparts merely clocked slower. Once the 5870m hit things went wrong, this was nothing more than a HD4870m die shrunk and clocked up a bit, certainly no mobile 1600sp Cypress GPU.

Yeah, they should. Sadly that's not the game AMD and Nvidia play anymore. Lowering GTX560 price would make GTX560 Ti and AMD competing parts less atractive, so prices of those would need to be lowered, which would make higher end cards less atractive and so on. This way they introduce a new card to cover a new spot without altering the rest of their lineup.

Both AMD and Nvidia are doing this for a long time, I realized these moves a long time ago, and I hate them, as any consumer should do, but that's what happens when you have only 2 players. It's just more profitable for them to play nice to each other instead of engaging in a price war. I hope Kepler changes that, but it's only hope.
Duopoly economics.

It proves they are worried by AMD's 7xxx cards.

Course they Are, from looks the chips are fairly scalable and can even increase Transistor/shader density to make another 7770 as a 7775/7776/7778/7779, perhaps even a dual GPU model... Honestly though, I feel that with Eyefinity, AMD could do away with the DVI ports and go with HDMI/Display ports across the card for a single slot design.

So wait a second? What would be the difference between this and a GTX460 again?

MX was crap, GF 4 MX 4000 would be left in the dirt by even the GF 2 GTS Pro.

Consumers know that "560" is faster than the 7770.
Yeah, sure it's believed to... but the worst was that nobody like W!zzard actually showed us that relative performance difference in his 7770 review. I’m not absolutely positive how such a statement stands up title by title. :D

This was interesting information from a 560ti, I was surpise at how a 7770 stays in the hunt!
