Bound to make its official debut on January 25, Nvidia's GTX 560 Ti has already been put to the test, early results finding that it delivers about the same level of performance as AMD's Radeon HD 6950 2GB graphics card.The results come from a Chinese website that goes by the name of diyfan.taobao.com and are accompanied by a couple of screenshots as well as by a graph that compares it to AMD's Radeon HD 6950 2GB.
Judging by the pictures provided, the card was tested by running the 3DMark 11 and 3DMark Vantage benchmarks at the default Performance settings, the first returning 4118 points while the latter shows a score of 20644.
According to the website that made this comparison, the GTX 560 surpasses the HD 6950 by 1.9% in Vantage and loses by as much as 10% in 3DMark 11.
When compared to other graphics solutions, the GTX 560 turned out to be as much as 27% faster than the Radeon HD 6870, about 14% better in average than the GTX 470 and 24% faster than the GTX 460.
In addition to the results returned, the pictures provided seem to confirm what we already knew about the GTX 560 as both the Nvidia Inspector and GPU-Z tools report that the core is clocked at 822MHz.
Furthermore, the card features 32 ROP units, 384 CUDA cores, 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1GHz (4000MHz effective) connected to the GPU via a 256-bit memory interface and carries the Ti moniker at the end of its name, as we previously reported.
Meant to come as a competitor for the regular Radeon HD 6950 as well as for the upcoming 1GB versions of the HD 6950 and HD 6970, the GTX 560 will be officially launched on January 25 for about $280 US.
