    EVGA made finally released a backplate accessory for NVIDIA's reference-design GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics cards. Priced at $20, the backplate is made of brushed metal. It helps reduce PCB bending by reinforcing it, as well as helps with heat dissipation. Then there's the obvious aesthetic lift it gives to your rig by covering up the soldered parts of the PCB. The backplate should fit NVIDIA reference design GTX 560 Ti graphics cards of all makes. It is available on the EVGA online store.

    Ugh. Why did they release this? This was demanded ages ago, and they're selling just as many if not more of their custom pcb variant.... and new cards aren't very far off. Just once I'd like these companies to have their shit together and release their double mem, custom pcb, backplate accessory stuff within the first month or two of a new cards release. If palit can do it why can't the rest of em?

    Feels like a last attempt at milking the market before the next series..

    I tend to agree, but IMO EVGA is better than most about giving customers what they ask for.
