After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased 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

    Card Layout & Features

    The reference GTX560 Ti is roughly 9 inches long and features a dual slot cooler.  The heatsink cover is typical NVidia with a glossy black finish and green accents to highlight the edges, there is an 8CM fan located in the middle.  Based on looks alone the GTX560 Ti appears to be a visual replacement to the older GTX460 graphics card.
    There is no metal back plate on the GTX560Ti but we can be assured that some manufacturers may include them to help protect and dress up the card.
    The video output is made up of 2 x DVI and a mini-HDMI digital output that has a dongle for connecting to a standard HDMI connection. HDMI does carry audio signal through a built in sound chip on the GTX 560 Ti.
    SLI is limited on the GTX 560 Ti to a maximum of two cards due to the single SLI bridge connection. We saw this become a standard on the GTX 460 with obviously no change in agenda.  However unlikely this may be, we can still hope that with custom board designs that the dual SLI fingers will come back.  The restriction was done to keep the GTX 560 from destroying the higher end product lines in scalar performance.
