    EVGA is celebrating the release of what is touted to be this year's blockbuster game title, Crysis 2. The company released the EVGA GTX 560 Ti Crysis 2 Maximum Graphics Edition bundle, which combines a GeForce GTX 560 Ti (NVIDIA reference design) graphics card with a copy of Crysis 2 (PC), and some Crysis 2 memorabilia, including a Crysis 2 poster, and a black t-shirt. The special edition GTX 560 Ti graphics card features clock speeds of 900 MHz core, 1800 MHz CUDA cores, and 4212 MHz memory. It packs 384 CUDA cores, and 1 GB of GDDR5 memory over a 256-bit wide memory interface. The GTX 560 Ti should typically let you play Crysis 2 at full-HD resolution (1920 x 1080), with hightened eye candy. The EVGA GTX 560 Ti Crysis 2 Maximum Graphics Edition bundle is priced at US $299. A bargain, if you ask me.

    An actual hard-copy of the game, instead of the usual DL nonsense?
    Wow. I'm impressed, even if I'm never going to buy this gear.
    Nice touch EVGA :cool:

    heightened eye candy = maximum in-game settings or not?

    I agree wholeheartedly! $50 above MSRP for a hard copy of the game and the memorabilia sounds pretty darn tempting. A 560Ti at those clocks should have no issues with Crysis 2 (Hardcore setting) at all.

    Super advanced state of the art graphics card

    Bundled with a gimped DX9 only game that can run perfectly fine with a 8800GT.

    Well, on the other hand, games that can actually push this gpu are becoming scarce. Heck, just look at my system specs, i can play ANY new game just fine at max or close to max settings.


    Btw: "Maximum graphics edition", does this special edition have a secret graphical setting? :p
