May 17 Launch for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560

NVIDIA is set to launch its next upper-mainstream GPU, the GeForce GTX 560 (not to be confused with GeForce GTX 560 Ti) on May 17. Designed to compete with AMD's Radeon HD 6790, the new GTX 560 is based on the same GPU as the GTX 560 Ti, the 40 nm GF114. It has 336 out of 384 CUDA cores enabled, while most other specifications of the GPU are untouched. The core clock speed is said to be not less than 800 MHz, making it faster than GeForce GTX 460, which otherwise has the same specifications while being based on the older GF104 silicon.

Looks up GTX 560 Ti reviews. Looks up GTX 560 on newegg. Sees much lower price than quoted in review. Instantly jumps on the "deal".

Nvidia - always one step ahead of the consumer.

465 isn't better than the 460.
I ordered them with the higher name when they are tied.

With those specs, it sounds like an overclocked 460..

Unless this sells for 200$ or less Nvidia's gonna have a tough time selling these. Me thinks.
Agreed.. Why buy an overclocked version of an existing gpu? Maybe some will but I think they struck to late, iron is already cold..

There is still room for GF GTX 560Ti SE Turbo TwinFrozr H2OCool Overclocked Black Edition though...

You know, I wouldn't be surprised if they do eventually make a GTX 560 SE or 560 Ti SE lol

i remember back when GTX x60 released (260,460). both are awesome cards, but this 560? well i think you *almost* had it :D

btw, anyone should not forget with these "exclusive" renaming too :

- Ultimate
- Platinum
- Super Clock
- Formula
- Super
- Classified
- Extreme
- Sonic
- AMP

these will be a lot easier if they just named it to OC version, marketing goals isn't it? :wtf:

I have to wonder is the 6770 really different in performance vs the 5770? I would have to say yes, because i really can not believe they would release the same damn card over again just under a different number

No. It has the same core, it likely has (haven't checked) the same clocks and same vRAM configuration. Yes, AMD rebranded a card, oh what a shock! :eek: :rolleyes:

it's not even got a retail released yet, so how do you its rebranded rather than an optimized version of the old chip.

i know everyone getting mad with these AMD renaming schemes which i know it sucks too, but at least from this point we knew that they can design a new "optimized" chip to run faster than the old ones.

just look back when 9800GTX+ got a new names (GTS 250). honestly, i didn't get shocked by that..

The card is at best buy dude. Check their site and go into the store and you will see it. I seen 4 of them last night when i was there looking over some cards. I have no plans to buy it tho, i could have, but i didn't.

this generation so reminds me of the G80-G92 era. Same cards with diff names, diff cards with the similar names, diff named cards that only variate by a few minute specification variations between the higher and lower end cards.

there supposed to be a GTX 565? i woulda thought they'd have activated the entire 384SPU's by now.

thats the GTX 560 Ti, 384 sp's 64 texture units. the 'vanilla' GTX 560 will have 336sp's exactly mimicing a GTX460's specs but with higher clocks and the tweaked GF114 core.

I would buy it if it wasn't the same card as the 5770. They should of least added a 900 core clock with 256bit. Releasing the same damn card under a different number is silly, everyone who works there needs to get slap or something. I mean, why even bother making it?
It must be something different, it has to be lol

they do stuff like that to sell things to people that are not informed buyers, like you were a year ago, no offense.

That will never happen. The core was not architecturally designed to have a 256-bit memory bus. About the clock, it's just a 50MHz bump. Nothing too spectacular.

Well, there isn't much info available, but from what I can gather the differences from the HD 5770 to the HD 6770 are -1 CFx finger, + HDMI 1.4a, superior price.

i check on AMD site, it still tagged for OEM's only. i dont know why best buy can sell it. but if this card is already on retail, there's should be a review somewhere..

It was released, but so far only for OEMs.
FYI, I'm not mad at AMD for rebranding.
i'm not mad when someone not making jokes from it. but somewhat i agree if this card should never been released, there only a little margin left between 5770 & 6790.

$179 price tag? best buy must be joking..

EDITED :
they make a retail release right now :wtf:
