Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic 1GB
When the behemoth Nvidia GTX 580 launched, we found it to be a very impressive card, having corrected the power, heat, and noise problems that plagued its GTX 480 predecessor. Then not long ago came the GTX 570, lowering the performance and price a notch while managing to hold off AMD’s flagship 6970. And taking things one step further, Nvidia is looking to continue their success with the GTX 560 Ti, bringing performance to the masses.
Beyond the reference design card, some manufacturers are taking what appears to already be an impressive product and pushing things further, with custom heatsinks for lower temperatures or factory overclocked settings for enthusiasts who want to extract the most our of their graphics card. Palit has decided to offer both of these features with the release of their GTX 560 Ti Sonic 1GB card.
Featuring a shorter PCB design, custom heatsink, and a strong factory overclock, this Palit card appears to have its sights set high. At a price of about $250, the Sonic doesn’t cost much more than the reference Nvidia card, but it comes with much better features.
So let’s jump in and take a closer look at the Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic and find out just how fast it is.
