Zotac GTX 560 Ti AMP! Edition Review

The fastest GTX 560 Ti in the market!?

Good: Very high overclock, Extremely fast, Not as loud as I expected it, Looks good
Bad: Temperatures go up very high, Not much room for overclocking
Price: AED 1,250
* The price is the Suggested Retail Price at the time of review. Please call a retailer to confirm the latest price for this product.

The testbed consists of an Intel Core i7-2600K, Kingston HyperX T1 4GB DDR3-2200MHz memory, Gigabyte P67A-UD7 motherboard, Kingston V-Series 64GB SSD with Windows 7 Ultimate running on it; all of which is powered by a Cooler Master 1200W Silent Pro Gold PSU. For comparisons I have added the original Zotac GTX 560 Ti, the AMD HD 6870 and the Nvidia GTX 570 thrown in for good measure.

The reason I added the overclocked MSI N560GTX-Ti and the GTX 570 along with the other cards should be apparent by now; the performance on the Zotac GTX 560 Ti AMP! Edition is ridiculously fast compared to its competition, to the point where it’s brushing up against a GTX 570!

From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
