When receiving the ASUS GTX 560 Ti 2GB we knew it was already about to be replaced but we still feel it needs its day in the sun as the card simply works, and offers something that the original design had omitted, which is the large framebuffer to play games really well in HD resolutions.
Obviously with Kepler now released everyone is forgetting about the “value card that was” but we do think that many will continue to use the 560 cards like this because they worked well at a decent value.
The issue we saw with this card was possibly just the fan profile as on our open testbench for initial testing it did seem like the fan ramped up pretty fast. This kept the GPU nice and cool but did cause it to be a little louder than e found necessary. Some custom fan profiling and within minutes GPU tweak had the card running just the way we wanted with our own custom fan profile.

|Summary: The 560 Ti may be old hat by now but that does not stop it from being an impressive value. For this it earns the Bjorn3D Silver Bear Award.|
