    Great review, as always. Nothing groundbreaking, priced there where the performance is: between a 6870 and 6950. Interesting to see how the 1GB version of the 6950 performs, since it's priced at about the same as this card.

    Great reviews as always but going by the overclocking results in two reviews up so far it looks like the gigabyte 1GHz super overclock card might be the 560 to buy and even more so as with extra voltage this card did not manage to reach 1GHz.

    not bad clocks for a ref card maybe with uncapped voltage u can hit higher clockers but still 943/1240/1885mhz ain't that bad 0.0

    but i would like to see the MSI Twin Frozr II version how it will do in oc ^^;

    I think the better cooling may help the overclock as this sample was heading very close to 100c with the extra voltage/overclock.

    With the performance of a stock speed 470 so close to the 560 i have to ask why you would not just get a second 470 and overclock it like you have the one you own now and probably gain more performance than a pair of 560's?

    !!! WARNING, THIS IS FANBOY POST !!!

    So HD6950 with unlocked shaders is still the best option :)

    Great card and great price but it seemed to lack in DX11 titles, maybe a driver will fix that.

    Looking good. I wonder what price cuts exactly we can expect on 68xx now. Got mine a month ago so even more glad they were only $155 AR shipped.

    Seems the 6950 beats it at high resolutions where I'll be playing.

    Anything above 1920x1200 should be driven by dual GPU especially at today's prices.

    Yes 6950 beats it.But the Gigabyte 1Ghz version of this card beats both 6950 and GTX570.I've heard that its priced around $270.:nutkick:

    Great review.

    Man, I am very disappointed with the 560. It is basically a faster, OC, 460. There are zero improvements in relative power consumption or in the performance per watt statistics. I was expecting better: same power envelope as 460, with better performance. But no.

    The 6950 wins on every measure of performance and performance per watt. I was hoping for a better contender from nV. Booh!

    Gigabyte's GTX460 SOC which is clocked at 1Ghz is available for ~$10 less than a 6950.It beats both 6950 and gtx570.I'm waiting for its review here at TPU.

    6950 still wins at performance per watt.Thanks to AMD's power efficient architecture.:rockout:

    Performs as expected, very nice... Power Consumption is abit to high but I am not complaining personally:D

    Considering how it overclocks it looks like a great alternative for gamers and enthusiasts.

    Only one SLI finger:eek:.GTX560 is meant to replace GTX470 which can be tri or even quad sli'ed:(
