Palit GeForce GTX 560 Ti Sonic

Testing for this review was just like other GPU articles you’ve seen at PC Perspective, though we did limit it to 1920×1200 resolution results just to help speed things along.  Since we already know about how the GTX 560 Ti compares to the wide world of graphics cards, we really only need information on these three cards compared to the reference results with their various overclocked settings. 

For our performance evaluation, you’ll see it setup like this:
  • GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB – $249
  • Galaxy GTX 560 Ti GC 1GB – $249
  • MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II 1GB – $249
  • Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic 1GB – $269
Obviously pricing will be an important factor when we look at the final results on the conclusion page but just keep in mind that only differentiation is the $20 higher price on Palit’s option. 

Here is our test system setup for the benchmarks:

  • Testing Configuration
  • ASUS P6X58D Premium Motherboard
  • Intel Core i7-965 @ 3.33 GHz Processor
  • 3 x 2GB Corsair DDR3-1333 MHz Memory

Let’s get to it!
