Battle through your DirectX 11 games with the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
Having boosted this card to 448 Processing Cores, upgraded the memory to 1280 MB, overclocked the core to 810MHz and added full support for NVIDIA 3-Way SLI, EVGA makes an excellent card even better. The EVGA 012-P3-2078-RX stands out from the crowd with its better performance and better features!
This review is from: EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores (Fermi) DirectX 11 012-P3-2078-RX 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Pros: Note: I purchased the non-refurbished version of this unit, which has been discontinued on NewEgg, so you can't find the reviews on it.
Cons: The card failed to work properly when placed under full load. It would constantly switch between full and half clock speeds making the performance poor and video not fluid. After several calls with tech support they decided to do an RMA. The replacement card behaved exactly the same way. They could do nothing for me other than offer another RMA. Obviously this card has a design flaw, see other thoughts to find out what it is.
Other Thoughts: This model of card is overclocked from the factory, and it appears that EVGA got a bit too aggressive with their settings (in particular, the voltages). Using their EVGA Precision software I was able to drop the voltages until the card finally started running well. Once the voltage was at a stable level, I was able to safely get another 50MHz out of the GPU and 100MHz out of the Memory. I would have much rather had a card I could just plug in and work right out of the box rather than having to mess with the settings and tweak it. To keep these custom settings, I must run EVGA Precision in the background constantly, which also means I must run Windows, since that is what EVGA Precision is written to run on. In the end I have a card that runs well on Windows and was a good price for the performance ($150 after rebate), but I had to deduct two eggs for the hassles of multiple calls to tech support, the hassle of an RMA for no good reason, and needing to run a utility in the background to make the card perform correctly.
