Serious gamers require serious gear. That is why Gigabyte has developed the Super Overclock Series. All of the GPUs in these graphics cards have been cherry-picked for top performance, efficiency and reliability. Innovative GPU Gauntlet Sorting selection process ensures that only the highest-performing GPU processors are used for these graphics cards. Coupled with Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable VGA boards, users can rest assured that the Super Overclock Series graphic cards will not let them down as they enter the digital battleground.

Gigabyte’s secret weapon GTX 560 Ti Super Overclock Edition (GV-N560SO-1GI) is built with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti GPU, featuring an astounding core clock of 1000MHz (standard 822MHz) and effective memory clock of 4580MHz (standard 4008MHz). Advanced features include Gigabyte’s WINDFORCE 2X cooling, 7 phase PWM design, OC Guru graphic card smart tuner and voltage read point. The powerful GV-N560SO-1GI also supports ground-breaking features including Microsoft DirectX 11, NVIDIA PhysX and 3D Vision Surround which lead to incredibly immersive HD gaming experience and unrivaled performance.

  • newegg GIGABYTE GPU Gauntlet Sorting GIGABYTE’s very own GPU Gauntlet Sorting process is the key to the best GPUs for Super Overclock Series. A GPU must pass a sequence of tests to be selected. This unique process offers three major advantages. First, full-throttle performance tuning improves overclocking ability by at least 10% to 30%. Second, optimized thermal efficiency lowers extra temperatures by 5% to 10%. Fan speed is guaranteed at standard rpm in high-rated 3D and physics-accelerated games to reduce noise for an absolutely quiet environment. Lastly, expert power switching lowers power switching loss by 10% to 30%. With GPU Gauntlet Sorting, GIGABYTE SOC graphics card guarantees higher overclocking ability.
  • newegg WINDFORCE 2X: Anti-turbulence Cooling The Gigabyte GV-N560SO-1GI is equipped with WINDFORCE 2X mirroring-inclined fin cooling solution which employs 2 ultra quiet PWM fans and four pure copper heat pipes. The special inclined dual fan design effectively minimizes the flow of turbulence between two fans and enhances heat dissipation of hot area right underneath each fan. By unique design, WINDFORCE 2X even enlarges air channel on the graphics card vents and creates a more effective airflow system in chassis. This special design helps heat dissipate quickly from GPU. In addition, the 2 copper heat-pipes strengthen the speed of heat dissipation.
  • newegg Ultra Durable VGA + Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable VGA+ features 5+1 quality components to support top performance in graphics benchmarking. It uses one NEC Proadlizer (also known as film capacitor) on the GV-N560SO-1GI to provide amazing current capacity and extremely low ESL/ESR for super overclocking ability. The added proadlizer transmits more stable power even during heavy loading.
  • newegg Pure Power Architecture The Gigabyte GV-N560SO-1GI features a 7 phase PWM design with 6 for GPU and 1 for memory, which leads to a more stable system and better overclocking capability.
  • newegg OC Guru – Graphic Card Smart Tuner Gigabyte’s graphics card tweaking utility OC Guru puts together the best combination of software/hardware overclocking, with 3 profiles to cater to users’ different needs - OC (for overclocking mode), Gaming (for gaming mode), and Green (for power saving mode). Gigabyte’s distinctive adjustable software offers gamers to adjust tuners for memory, voltage, and fan speed.
  • newegg Voltage Read Point Gigabyte’s specific voltage read point allows users to change the voltage simply through software instead of manually adjusting any components on PCB, offering hardcore gamers an ultimate benching experience at overclocking competition. It is easy for overclockers to master the platform and monitor GPU workload at any time just through voltage read point.

2 out of 5 eggsMight want to look somewhere else.

Pros: It stays pretty cool which is one of the main reasons I bought the card, it had great reviews in tech forums for cooling.

Cons: I have to under clock it 822 MHz just to play the vast majority of games, if I don't the games will start artifacting and/or the screen will go black and my display drivers will fail. I've tried every possible driver for it but nothing seems to fix the issue.

I've even tried just running games on lower settings but that hasn't worked and that's not what I paid for.

Other Thoughts: I'm sure it's an excellent card and maybe I just got a lemon but this was my first time buying something from Gigabyte and I only did because BFG is no longer around. I'm not exactly happy with the brand thus far, I suppose I'll have to try EVGA, MSI or ASUS next time.

2 out of 5 eggsWas fine for a few months, then constant momentary crashes

Pros: Extremely high clock speeds resulted in good performance until stability issues has rendered it nearly useless. I give it two stars because it did perform as advertised for several months, but due to their archaic and customer-unfriendly RMA process I knock 3 stars off.

Cons: Using moderate to high settings in Star Wars - The Old Replublic this card has begun to crash sometimes over and over and up to 20 times in one night of gaming. I also am not satisfied with Gigabyte's lack of a cross-ship option and waiting nearly a month to get a replacement means that with no on-board GPU and no old cards to substitute, I will be without my computer for a month! Not acceptable.

I have spend the last two months dealing unsuccessfully with Bioware support and Gigabyte's support and the only option that I seem to be left with is going without a video card for a month while I wait for a Gigabyte RMA video card.

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for your buck, hands down

Pros: This video card can take almost anything I can throw at it without batting an eye. I can play COD: Black Ops flawlessly on the highest settings and it looks WAY better than any PS3 could ever do. I have played UT3, Oblivion, and a few others on the highest settings, and again, flawless gameplay.
I also like the way the on-board fans are positioned to push the air out and away from the card to perform as cool as possible while making fan noise almost non-existent.

Cons: It is slightly larger than some other graphics cards, but not a con if you do your research and know how much space your case has.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I really like the speed, price, and gameplay that is produced from this relatively cheap video card for the performance you get from it. I would LOVE to get two of these and connect via SLI running x16/x16 (because my MoBo is capable of doing so) I've always been pleased with nVidia as well as Gigabyte and would recommend this to anyone who's sitting on the fence about which one to choose.

2 out of 5 eggsWas great at first...

Pros: Runs games on all high settings, even the Battlefield 3 beta.

Cons: After 5 months of great service, I started encountering driver crashes and ingame artifacts despite very good temps. And with Battlefield 3 only a couple of weeks away, I'm not really looking forward to dealing with the 2-3 week wait for another one due to the lack of cross-shipping in their warranty service. This was my first time straying from eVGA and it bit me.

Other Thoughts: This is an update on a review I wrote a few months ago.

2 out of 5 eggsNOT worth it

Pros: FAST
Looks pretty good

Cons: Doesn't last

Other Thoughts: I had this card in an "office setting" (meaning just used it for basic computer use) and it worked fine. Once I started gaming with it, it started out great but quickly faded. Now that it's on the verge of completely failing I've had it RMA'd once already. Gigabyte promptly sent it back to me and everything seemed ok again. Then after a few minutes of gaming it broke again. I want my money back! This thing is worthless!

5 out of 5 eggsBlows me away

Pros: Incredibly, this card performs on par in terms of fps with the GTX 570 on most games, better in others. Temperature wise, it runs at an impressive 34 degrees Celsius when idle. Under load, it will range from 50 to 60 Celsius which is nothing to scoff at.

I've tested a number of games in 1680 X 1050 settings set to full graphics settings. All of the following games run at an average of 60 fps:

Just Cause 2
Batman Arkham Asylum
Starcraft 2
Killing Floor
Portal 2
L4D2 & L4D1
Call of Duty: Modern War fare 1 & 2

Older games that work fine with the card:
Jedi Knight 2

Other RTS titles that run very smoothly:
Medieval II: Total War Kingdoms
Sins of a Solar Empire Diplomacy

But, does it play Crysis?
Crysis One averages about 40 fps on extreme settings at 1680X1050

Crysis 2 averages near 60 fps at 1680x1050 on the graphics set to very highest.

DX10 and DX11 titles that push this card to it's limits:
Shattered Horizon

Cons: None, this card has run perfectly since day 1. The fan will produce a noticeable hum when the card is under full load, but any pc game's sounds will drown it out.

Other Thoughts: System specs:

Processor: Intel Q9400 2.66 GHz
Motherboard: MSI P43-C51
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 560 TI SOC
RAM: GSKILL Ripjaw DDR3 (4X 2GB) 1333 MHZ
Hard Drive: Sea Gate 500 GB Constellation
PSU: Zalman 750W

This card is an excellent replacement for a GTX 480 or GTX 570. At $279.99, it was 70 bucks cheaper than the 570 ($349.99) when I bought it I recommend buying it as soon as it becomes available again. It will provide more than enough graphics power for almost any game out there until the GTX 600 series comes out.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible performance

Pros: Great card. Runs cool idles at 34c. Runs just about anything on highest settings. Comparable to a stock 570. Amazing to see an nvidia card hit the 1ghz mark. Really great card for the money. Runs fairly quiet as well even under load. Runs everything maxed out with great fps.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Has green leds on the card. I'm assuming they indicate power phases.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: For 15 minutes - its fast as hell

Cons: If your playing for any length beyond a quick game - forget it! At its stock clock of 1000 it cant stay below 80C and the moment it hits 80 I start to get whole-systems freezes tha need a hard reset. Even upon blowing a carpet-dring blower into my case, it still manages to get fairly hot and freeze.. I am forced to drop it into "green" model at 800 jsut to keep it alive for more than 15 minutes; and that isnt even bulletproof. Their documentation is pathetic; bad grammer and generally written in "engrish". Support seems even worse.

Other Thoughts: There is a reason most of the manfacturers wont factory overclock to 1000; it is a trainwreck. Dont think for a second Gigabyte has tricks up its sleeve that EVGA, or MSI, or SFS dont know about. Gigabyte blew it; plain and simple

2 out of 5 eggsCrashed after 1 hour of Gameplay.

Pros: This card, when it worked, was a beast, it ran everything smoothly, with little to no lag.

Cons: After about an hour of gaming it would crash repeatedly, and I would have to restart the computer to get it to work. Fan on this card would get pretty loud, louder than my case. RMA'd the card, going with EVGA GTX 560 TI SC, which I should have done in the first place.

Other Thoughts: 930 i7
850w Corsair PSU
H50 Corsair Cooler
HAF 932 Case
Asus P6X58D-E MOBO

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card.

Pros: Very Stable at 1000Ghz. It stays cool at 38c idle and 66c load.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Its Very Stable at 1000Ghz. I am running with 266.66 driver. Update your drivers mostly not always. Use the driver thats stable for you.
