For testing the Gigabyte N560SO I have used our regular testbed, which comprises 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 Zotac GTX 570, the MSI R6950 as well as the R6870.

As you can see the Gigabyte N560SO is fast enough to touch the heels of a standard GTX 570 as well as outperforming the HD 6950 in some cases. Obviously a stock HD 6870 is no match for this overclocked beast.

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.
