Salutations,
:toast:

i recently came to know about this Graphic Card, it's badged as "GTX 560" But i suspect it's not what it claims to be, i am to find out what it really is...

This is what it looks like,




and the GPU Z is the strangest by far i have came across:twitch:


the real reference 560 goes like this


...............
Please look at the GPU Z very carefully as it has amused me,
Its a GTX560 with 64Unified Shaders!, 512MB, DDR3! :wtf:
and G110.. what is that?

-Overall quality is also flimsy

-It says MSI on the cooler and GPUZ, the vendor claims that they ordered special 512MB versions of GTX560 and MSI made it specially for them :wtf:
the Cooler and overall looks are identical to 9600GT card of MSI, the vendor said it is re-furbished, may be possible that the chip is low end 560 and the cooler and heat sink is 9600GT's. or may be possible that it's only 9600GT

-also note that it does not requie external 6pin PSU connection

-the performance on a core2duo was only 9FPS on 1024x768 on furmark!
..................
Experts please assist what is it because il buy 10 pieces if it's real 560 but not even a single if it's not.

Some sort of fake/copy. Take a cooler off and take a picture of the GPU/PCB.

I'm gonna say. Those are true 9600GT cards. If you are after one of those then buy them. Else it is a scam. They have nothing to do with the GTX560 or any other GTX. Only the 9600 had 64SP from what i remember no GF110 had that few not even the GF108 if remember correctly. If you have one in your hands just try and look for DIrectx SUpport in a DX11 game. If it doesn't support dx11 is is definitely and old chip with a modded bios.

:ohwell: Just as i suspected.
It looks like it's some sort of Cheap Chinese copy.:pimp:, used the name of MSI
The 9600GT Rebaged as GTX560 and a modded bios.

Yea Cheapo quality too.

So this is an Example for all of us.

a contribution in Knowledge :cool: for all of us that scams like these are also available on the market.
so Be aware !

this is also an alarm to MSI, lookout some one is using your name!

Thank GOD i didn't bought a single piece

Thank you all for your contributions :)

I remember MSI 9600GT and 9600GSO card with similar cooler shroud like those picture.
MSI call it "seaweed blade" or something like that.
