Introduction to the ASUS GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores DirectCU II Video Card
We are in the midst of a GPU transition if AMD releasing the HD 7xx0 series and NVidia bring to market the Kepler line. So, far each model has held their own when released. With the best being the HD 7970 and the GTX 680, each launch partner of both has so far added their own twist to the new cards to make them even faster, more quiet and overall better performers.
Currently, it seems that NVidia has the upper hand as the GTX 690 is dominating everything on the market but at a cost of $1000 depending on where you purchase it from. So, we really do not include that in the discussion. The GTX 680 and the Radeon HD 7970 are what most of us are more capable of affording retailing at just over $500 for each. The GTX 680 from the many reviews that i have read has the upper hand.
Shortly after we saw the HD 7950 hit the market followed by the GTX 670. Both these cards do toe to toe depending on your application and game. The only real reason i see someone deciding on one over the other is fanboyism. And i am saying anything is wrong with fanboyism as there are some companies that even i prefer when shopping for some things.
Now, we get to the point of this review we are conducting today. Below the GTX 670, NVidia has not bought anything new to the market. While AMD has the 78xx sitting in that upper mainstream realm. As of right now the older GTX 560 and GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores covers that area for NVidia until they release the GTX 660. Yes, the GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores is a little aged but it definitely still holds its hold when it comes to gaming. There is no game on the market that you can say this card will not give you a delightful gaming experience.
