    Looks like they had some leftovers from the 465s and 470s

    Well, that card is... short ! And the backside looks kinda weird.

    Price/Performance ratio ?

    This fan is of a turbine type, so it should work just fine, especially for such a cut-off chip

    Kind of a strange looking card.. It's got the intake vents below the fan like the GTX480, and but it's not a particularly hot chip. It also seems to be shorter than the GTX460.

    This has got to be one of the more uglier designs ive seen in a while

    I'd want to see the performance VS a 460SE. The 560SE has better clocks, but the 460SE has a wider memory interface. I'd be willing to bet there is very little difference between the two.

    If this thing is more then 140 bucks, its too much.

    It's supposed to compete with amd 7770 wich is $160 so...not worth it.

    so that fan is somehow protruding behind the card, is it?? another method to make a tiny card look bigger... cause for some people the bigger the card is the better...

    perfect, nicely done marketing design :banghead:

    The fan looks the same as the Zotac GTX 460. It's hot and noisy. :ohwell:

    Seems pointless on the eve of Kepler's launch (March 22nd).

    Looks the same, kind of, but definitely isn't the same. The fan on the GTX460 was only 1 slot tall, because it sat on top of the PCB and the components on the PCB took up one slot worth of space. The fan on this GTX560 is two slots tall, more like the GTX465/470. So it should be pretty quiet cooling such a weak chip, depending on the actual heatsink used of course.
