For testing these cards our resident testbed was used which consists of an Intel Core i7-2600K, Kingston HyperX T1 4GB DDR3-2200MHz memory, Gigabyte P67A-UD7 motherboard, WD VelociRaptor 300GB HDD 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 used the a GTX 560 Ti, GTX 550 Ti, AMD HD 6870 and a HD 6850 all running at stock speeds. All benchmarks were run at a resolution of 1920 x 1200.
Well the highly overclocked Zotac GTX 560 AMP! Edition seems to be ruling the charts, despite the big brother’s presence. It’s interesting to see the stock ECS GTX 560 competing with both the HD 6850 and the HD 6870, dominating in some cases and being dominated in others.
