NVIDIA's Kepler-based GeForce GTX 680 may be stealing most of the attention of end-users, but other products are getting their share as well, like Inno3D's GeForce GTX 560 SE.
Some folks at Expreview
managed to get a hold of some product photos of the Inno3D video controller, though they couldn't provide all the info on it.
Most notably, the availability date and the estimated price are still a mystery.
Nevertheless, the pictures do a good job of showing what the board is made of and what cooler it has.
The overall specifications are also more or less known, so prospective buyers can use them to get an idea of how convenient a buy this thing is, or will be.
The GeForce GTX 560 SE has 288 CUDA cores and clock speeds of 776 MHz for the GPU (graphics processing unit), 1,553 MHz for the shaders (those very CUDA cores) and 953 MHz for the memory (actual frequency).
Speaking of the memory, Inno3D gave its product 1 GB of GDDR5 VRAM, plus an interface of 192 bits.
As for the PCB (printed circuit board), it is very short and uses a simple 4+1 phase VRM.
The only thing left to talk about is the cooler, a dual-slot, fairly powerful array really. A copper base plate draws the heat from the GPU and then sends it to the two aluminum fin stack via heatpipes.
There are four 8mm copper heatpipes, all of which have nickel plating. As for the fin stacks, they are fairly standard looking. Finally, the air is dispersed by two fans with a diameter of 80mm.
All in all, the Inno3D GeForce GTX 560 SE should easily deal with every possible game out there.
Finally, its short PCB is a notable advantage, since it makes it usable for smaller cases than usual. We wouldn't be surprised if this thing became a favorite of LAN party participants. HTPCs may use it as well, though admittedly the 560 SE may be too powerful for them (and probably too expensive, though you never know).
