NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 560 Ti is based on NVIDIA's new GF114 chip. As far as specifications and transistor-count go, it is identical to the GF104 on which GTX 460 was based, except that it has all 384 of the CUDA cores physically present enabled, and that it uses the same secret-sauce (read: electrical enhancements) that made GF110, an evolved clone of the GF100, totally rock with power consumption figures. 384 CUDA cores apart, there's a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, 32 ROPs, branched geometry processing, and the immediate fruition of the electrical enhancements, clock speeds: 822 MHz core, 1640 MHz CUDA cores, and 1000 MHz (4.00 GHz effective) memory. As far as features go, the GTX 560 Ti doesn't come with anything we haven't seen already with the GTX 460, it's all about performance per watt/dollar in this round.
MSI's GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II is a customized version of the GTX 560 design. It comes with a custom PCB and uses MSI's well-established TwinFrozr II cooling solution. In terms of specifications, everything is the same with the exception of the clock speeds, which have received a significant bump on the MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II.
