PNY GTX 560 Ti OC2
Nvidia has been on a bit of a roll lately, as their 500 series graphics card lineup has proven to be formidable, not only in terms of sheer performance horsepower but also in fairly aggressive pricing schemes. The cards overall have also shown to be very overclockable, and gamers with varying budgets have quite a strong selection from which to choose something to suit their needs.
In the mid-range of the Nvidia lineup lies the GTX 560 Ti at the sweet spot of about $250 in the market. There’s quite a bit of gaming power at that price point, and gamers are no doubt seriously considering their choices. For some, low noise levels may be important, while for others aesthetics are key. And other still want overclocking prowess. Frankly, we’d love all of those wrapped up into a single package.
The PNY GTX 560 Ti OC2 is one card that certainly looks to pushing the performance envelope since this particular model comes with a strong factory overclock out of the box. It’s got a competitive price of $250, but can it compete against AMD’s Radeon lineup? Let’s jump in and find out.
