After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
EVGA offers a great software suite including the Precision / OC Scanner to get the most out of any EVGA video card. As with most EVGA graphics cards you get an excellent lifetime warranty, just be sure to register your purchase within the first 30 days, and if you do happen to run into issues the EVGA 24/7 support team is there to along with their strong, and knowledgeable, online community. Also be sure to drop by their website as they tend to hold game and benchmark giveaways on a regular basis providing residual benefits to all of their fans.
In this review we not only looked at the increased performance of the GTX 560 Ti SC but paired up 2 of these cards to see how they reacted in SLI over the GTX 470 SLI. As we indicated in our previous review the GTX 560 Ti was positioned to overtake the older GTX 470 in terms of overall performance and we can see that in our performance benchmarks. The same holds true in SLI as well, the only major difference being that the GTX 470 supports triple and quad SLI configurations whereas the GTX 560 Ti is limited to two.
Regardless of scalability limitations for gamers on a budget looking to make that major leap to DirectX 11 the GTX 560 Ti SC makes for a great starting point with the option of adding a second card later.
Fully DirectX 11 capable
Lower power usage
Excellent power per watt
Very good cooling system
More overclocking potential left
Lack of external exhaust cooling system
