A new price/performance king emerges?
Of the three cards for review, the Palit GTX 560 Ti is not only the most overclocked of the three, but also the most expensive. The core clock is set to 900MHz and memory to 4200MHz compared to reference Nvidia speeds of 822MHz on core and 4008MHz on memory speeds. That’s one hell of a factory overclock to be sure, which is why it commands such a premium at and MSRP of $339 (AED 1,300).
The other addition to Palit’s GTX 560 Ti is of course the heatsink, which replaces the reference Nvidia single fan solution with a dual fan slot over the same board size. Of the three GTX 560 Ti’s given to Tbreak for review, the Palit card is the smallest of them all.
The stock fan does indeed keep things very cool, idling at 38°C with both fans running at just over 1000rpm each, the fan does start making a weird buzzing sound when under full stress. Besides this, the Palit GTX 560 Ti managed a relatively small overclock of 30MHz more than factory speeds, but 930MHz is still a whole lot more than 822MHz of reference speeds.
