Gigabyte is ready with a Super Overclock (SOC) variant of its upcoming GeForce GTX 560Ti graphics card, already. The GV-N560SO-1GI clocks at an impressive 1000 MHz core (vs. 822 MHz reference), and 1145 MHz (actual) or 4580 MHz (effective GDDR5) memory speed, with a CUDA core clock speed of 2000 MHz. Apart from these, the card features 384 CUDA cores, and 1 GB of memory over a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface.

WOW DAMN, if you look in the photo the Super Overclock Edition has 178mhz oc on the core comparing the the normal and 580mhz increase on the memory comparing to the normal. That's what I call customer care and awesome cards chosen by Gigabyte! These should be mini beasts!

Sorry if it is OOT.. but I am wondering if ASUS will come up with something like this... Asus Mars or Venus or Jupiter...
Installed Gigabyte N450OC2 in my RIIIE but somehow my desktop lockups few minutes into Windows.. Tried installing on Rampage Formula turns out running fine... weird.

I think this might be my next card. well a GTX560Ti really. SLI here i come!

I can only do a 19k preset on Vantage with my 470 at 825mhz


I wonder what MSI has it store? HawkTi????

With core overclocks like this the 560's are starting to look a little better, i did not have much hope for the stock models as many people were pushing 460's to higher clocks and i would assume a higher clocked 460 would end up close to the same power as a stock clocked 560, kind of like an overclocked 480 vs stock 580.

Yes i know overclocked vs non overclocked is not a fair comparison i just meant as in if people already had about the same power it would be hard to tempt them to upgrade.

I can only do a 19k preset on Vantage with my 470 at 825mhz
The system spec was not listed so that could be with a 980x or something for all we know, i look forward to the reviews to see some numbers from TPU.

Im thinking pricing will be around 260-300. Its suppose to complete with the 6950 and so far it looks like its going to piss on it. well this card at least.

That would be for the reference one I reckon (which I doubt would reach 1ghz core clock).. I doubt if thatl be the price for Gigabyte's soc.

I'm willing to bet this specific model won't come cheap though, most of the super overclock models have been a reasonable amount more than the stock cards but depending on the system used to get the 3dmark score it may be very much worth the extra cost, although i guess it depends on the overclocking results from stock cards.

It would be awesome if the standard models could be clocked up to or even over 1ghz with a little extra voltage, i must admit that would make me very jealous of 560 owners :laugh:

This is a BIG overclock.

In SLI mode, what will it be called? BIG TITI?

I feel that many GTX560's are going to clock in the area of this card.... this is really nice to see.

well I'd say that given a GTX460 @ 900 core and 1000 mem is already above stock GTX470 performance, this with more shaders, a higher clock and mem clock should sit very very close to GTX570/480 performance, especially at resolutions between 1280x720 and 1920x1200, right in the midrange sweetspot.

last years high end single GPU cards are this years midrange... mmmm value....

Immature, classless, etc, but I lol'ed. Imagine the puns..."Look at 'dem TITIs!"

The fact that this is clocked at 1ghz must mean nVIDIA loosened the voltage regulation for partners. IIRC it was clamped down at 1.175v across the range, and it's where 40nm potentially starts to leak badly (It's also the stock voltage for 6970/6870). There is literally no way 1ghz would be reached without going over that rate. That spells good news for more 'vanilla-like' parts after being overvolted/overclocked. That said, I still wish nVIDIA's memory controller didn't suck. The parts will be lovely I'm sure, but it sure could be helped with a little more BW.

nVIDIA must really want to put the hurt to the 6900 series with GTX560. With powertune in place on 6970 and ESPECIALLY 6950, they likely will do just that. I'm not saying 6900 doesn't have it's good points, but the potential is there for nVIDIA to have a smaller core, priced cheaper, that can perform in the same league as those parts; even if at a higher clockspeed (Wait, I've seen this movie before somewhere...). The point, of course, is that power/speed isn't regulated so you are able to make up that difference while AMD has clamped down 560's potential competitor from making up that lost ground.

AMD made their bed the best way they saw fit, now they get to lay in it.

I hope after GTX560 (and probably a 1x6-pin 550 taking on the 6800 series) AMD seriously reconsiders how they go about playing this game. More-efficient architecture or not, it doesn't matter if your competition finds a way to create a better value or more convenient design (IE a 550 could be 145-149W TDP, just like 570 is 219W...they both still will overvolt/overclock, but that one-less power connector looks awfully appealing...).

The scaling on GTX 460 was pretty damn good in most games, AMD 6xxx still better so I went with some cheap AR 6850's this time around.

Looking forward to news re. how 560 performs in this regard.

Seriously all these anticipatory material of a spectulative nature has me a bit hot and bothered. :laugh:

with the gtx5xx series their memory cooler is actually pretty good; even if their clocks arent as high, the bus is what really stands out. with the lower clocks but higher bus then the AMD cards is still getting quite a bit more bandwidth. look at the GTX580

Pretty sexy, but price will dictate adoption, and FFS Gigabyte can't you have some professional photos for a press release rather than a picture of a projection .. .:shadedshu:nutkick:!
