With the all-important winter shopping season around the corner, NVIDIA wants to fortify its “Sweet Spot” segment. This segment consists of graphics cards with good price-performance ratios, that gamers making far-sighted buying decisions end up choosing. Presenting the all-new GeForce GTX 560 Ti with 448 CUDA cores. GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores will not be available worldwide, according to NVIDIA the regions are USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Russia and the Nordics.
The current GeForce GTX 560 Ti has achieved a good price-performance equation with prices well under US $250 and improvements in performance thanks to mature drivers; but a vacuum has been created between it and the GeForce GTX 570, that is about $100 costlier, and classifies as high-end. NVIDIA maxed out the number of CUDA cores that can be activated on the GF114 silicon (384), adding more memory won’t help it much, and will instead drive up power draw because the memory bus width is maxed out as well. The only option left is carving out a new SKU using the GF110 silicon.
