On November 29, Nvidia is expected to launch a new graphics card based on the company’s GF110 core that will be known as the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores and recently the first picture of such a solution built by Zotac was leaked on the Web.
The card, which was spotted by Fudzilla, uses Zotac’s now traditional Black and yellow color scheme as well as what appears to be the same cooling solution installed in most of the company’s GTX 560 Ti models.
This time however, behind that shroud lies Nvidia’s upcoming GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores GPU that is actually based on the same GF110 core as the one used for the more powerful GTX 580 and GTX 570.
In the case of the Nvidia GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores however one of the 15 streaming modules included in this GPU were disabled.
The rest of the graphics core includes 56 texture units, 40 ROP units and a 320-bit memory bus connected to 1.25GB of video buffer, just as is the case with the GeForce GTX 570.
The card's operating frequencies will also mimic those of its older brother as it will work at 732MHz, while the GDDR5 video buffer is clocked at 950MHz (3.80GHz effective).
Together with the increased performance offered by the new graphics core, the power consumption of the card has also grown since the GTX 560 Ti 448 uses the same 0.950V to 1.100V voltage range as the GTX 570.
Other features of the Nvidia GTX 560 Ti (448 Core) include support for 3-way SLI, DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort video outputs.
As mentioned just a bit earlier, the GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores will be officially launched on November 29, and its recommended price is expected to be on par with that of the original GTX 560 Ti.
Performance wise, a graph that was published on Nvidia’s GeForce website just a little more than week ago revealed that the GTX 560 Ti 448 Core should be almost as fast as the GTX 570.
