    Revised GF110-based GTX 560 Ti On The Way: a GTX 570 In Disguise?

    Those on a budget looking to upgrade their graphics cards might do well to wait a little while, NVIDIA is preparing an upgraded GTX 560 Ti. The current model is based on the GF114 GPU which has 384 CUDA cores, 32 TMUs, a 256-bit memory interface and 1GB VRAM. However, the new model discards the GF114 GPU and replaces it with the beefier GF110 GPU that's used on the GTX 570 & GTX 580 cards. As one would expect, this GPU will be cut down compared to its bigger brothers, featuring 448 CUDA cores, 56 TMUs, a 320-bit memory bus and likely 1280MB VRAM. Another improvement comes in the form of two SLI connectors, allowing 3-card setups to be built, but the cost compared to using more powerful cards must of course be considered before such a build is attempted. The new card will be called the "GTX 560 Ti (448 Core)", which follows a similar convention that was used with the GTX 260 when NVIDIA upgraded it to the GTX 260 (216 Core). Given that the memory bus and memory size are now the same as that of the GTX 570, it brings with it the intriguing possibility that such cards may be unlocked to full GTX 570 performance by enterprising enthusiasts who are not afraid of risking their warranty in their unending quest for better performance.

    The new card will of course be faster, but will also use a bit more power and is expected to compete with overclocked HD 6950 2GB cards. For those who are not experts in remembering model numbers and specifications separating very similar products and are thus confused by the various models currently on offer, all looking superficially the same of course, this new variant will unfortunately only increase their distress. Hopefully, the older and weaker models will soon disappear, bringing some sanity to the marketplace. As it stands though, there will now be four base models to choose from: GTX 560, GTX 560 Ti, GTX 560 Ti (OEM) and now, GTX 560 Ti (448 Core), so buyers should do their homework and look carefully at product naming and descriptions before putting down their hard-earned money on a GTX 560-based card. This is especially important, as it's expected to look the same as the old version. No word on pricing or release date yet, but one hopes that it would cost about the same as the current GTX 560 Ti, or come down in price shortly after.
