Nvidia Debuts The GeForce GTX 560 Graphics Card

NVIDIA logoNVIDIA today introduced the GeForce GTX 560 GPU, the latest addition to the company's Fermi architecture-based product family and Nvidia's response to AMD's HD Radeon HD 6870 GPU.

Starting at $199 USD, the GeForce GTX 560 joins its big brother, the previously launched GTX 560 Ti GPU, which retails for $250. With the new card, Nvidia tries match rival's AMD offering (HD 6870) in the $200 price tag. The card is also situated between the GeForce GTX 460 and GeForce GTX 560 Ti in terms of price and performance. In addition, Nvidia offering the new card as a replacement to the previous-generation GeForce 9800 GT, which is possibly the most popular-owned gaming GPU on the market.

Nvidia is allowing its add-on partners to offer overclocked versions of the GeForce GTX560 cards. So given the factory overclocks we will see, it makes the prospects of a good aftermarket overclock on the mid-grade cards a very good possibility.

Stream processor clocks are running at 1620MHz and up to 1900MHz under overclocking.
