a pair of these in SLi is a force to contend with, could be a price/performance snatch compared to the high end as it stands.

i seriously doubt that extra memory will make any difference at all at resolutions where 560 ti will deliver decent framerates

People asked for this when it came out. People who really wanted it picked up a version from another brand months ago. The market for it is gone. Even more so given the pending 28 nm cards. When will companies learn that these things must be available from launch or at least shortly after if they ever hope to get real market penetration. It's a lesson Palit had no trouble learning and they've been capitalizing on it for years now while their competitors twiddle their thumbs and pick their noses.

*Yawn*, is this supposed to impress? 2GB? Hell, it's 2011 and even 550-Tis come with 4GB. How's that for "Double Memory"?

Market may have dwindled but its not gone till NV 6 series launches. But I'd expect to see more stuff like this at EOL on a product. We didn't see the neat 460 combinations till the 5 series had been out awhile. Even then people were harping that they were too late.

Personally I'd prefer these too at launch and then bargain prices later when they try to clear out inventories instead of making special editions/etc. If only for people who couldn't afford SLI at the time but want a cheap performance boost later. Ended up buying used for my 2nd 460 cause prices just wouldn't drop to where I wanted it. Saved some scratch by waiting a few months. But I do wish they had done more aggressive price cutting on discontinued hardware.

Maybe it's useful if you want to do nVSurround3d with 2 cards in SLI.

you are right indeed, (but someone who likes to play games in nVSurround3d will get something more powerful perhaps).
Other than that, there are about 14 titles in the market with a need of more than 1GB video-ram, and the only one among them which is not GPU-limited(560ti) above 1920x1200+candy is: GTA4 (and maybe later RAGE will be, with some high-res PC-exclusive DLC).

Single card yes, i agree, however a 2gb 560 Sli setup, will deliver high framerates for at least another 2yrs...

Id say SLi would be the only real benefit, 2560x1600 or higher.

I'm with wizz, the 560 isn't capable of resolutions where the extra memory is needed or would make a difference.

I think this would have been a good idea when the 560Ti first came out. It would be good for budget nvidia surround. However, the HD 6950 2GB kills hi-res surround like a champ. It's pretty proven the AMD cards excel at high resolutions and eyecandy.

could prove to be a slight advantage when sli'd (like everyone has said).

facepalm though about the 550ti with 4gb.. I imagine someone somewhere out there installing the card with win xp then going "wtf?!" when they see their available memory lol
