MSI Intros GeForce GTX 560 SE OC Graphics Card

Over the weekend, MSI launched a factory-overclocked variant of its GeForce GTX 560 SE graphics card (model: N560GTX-SE-M2D1GD5/OC). Designed identical to the card MSI started its GTX 560 SE lineup with, the OC model features out of the box clock speeds of 750/1500/957(3828) MHz core/CUDA cores/memory(effective), against reference clock speeds of 736/1472/957(3828) MHz. The card packs a custom-design PCB that makes use of copperMOS, and a custom-design cooler that uses two fans to ventilate a large aluminum fin heatsink fed by copper heat pipes. The card features 288 CUDA cores, and 1 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface. Expect this card to cost under $200.

I am not happy with Nvidia at the moment. Under $200 for a card that only has 1GB of ram and has 192 bit for a memory bus and then at the super duper high-end having only 256-bit memory bus and 2 GB of ram. Shouldn't that be a mid-end card with mid-end pricing? Absolutely crazy!

No, from what i understand - 560SE < 560 < 560 Ti < 560 448 core =(almost)= 570

GPU hierarchy is always confusing to me, though :wtf:

Yup, you are totally correct. And I totally agree with your arguement on Nvidia's naming scheme. I mean seriously, why can't they go back to their old naming schemes. (Geforce 6xxx era or like the 9xxx era)

NO

The 560 SE is the BOTTOM of the barrel in terms of performance in the 560 range

you're not likely to see it soon if nvidia still struggle to find another fab to fix Kepler's low yields..

? not entirely sure what you're implying from your first sentence but Nvidia stopped production of the 580 about a week ago (officially anyway) and stopped the 590 - i think - a month or two ago (don't quote me on the 590 figure).

what i mean was why msi release the card of the series that are likely to be discontinued?

as soon as they fix the problem with availability of kepler and then release the rest line-up for geforce 6 series. geforce 5 series will become less appealing for nvidia to keep it alive, starting with 580 and 590..

but i admit, the card look sexy and *appealing* for me.
