Following the great success of the latest GeForce GTX 580 graphics card NVIDIA recently launched yet another model of the GTX 5xx line the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. All of you counting many years in the world of personal computers should remember the GeForce Ti4xxx series back in 2002, however then NVIDIA had 4 different models the Ti4200, Ti4400, Ti4600 and finally the far rarer Ti4800 edition. Now 8 years later NVIDIA decided on using the Ti (Titanium) name again for their lineup with only one product, until now that is and so whether or not they will launch other products with the Ti extension or this is just a way of them to give all of us a nice flashback is something that i really don't know.
Gainward Co. Ltd was founded in Taipei back in 1984 and their main goal was to produce a variety of PC video enhancement products. In 1989 Gainward starts production of new VGA technology and becomes a major developer for Tseng Labs ASIC in Taiwan. Their USA presence was officialized in 1991 and by 1992 Gainward was ranked Top 1000 Industrial companies in Taiwan. TNC Industrial Co. Ltd. merged with Gainward in 1997 and with that move they became one of the largest graphics cards suppliers, shipping more than 2 million boards during the year. In 2000 Gainward establishes their presence in Europe with a new branch in Germany while in 2001 they become an NVIDIA Certified Selection Solution Provider and NVIDIA Launch Partner. Gainward and Palit Microsystem Inc. merge together in 2005 to ensure a higher level of accessibility and the highest possible product quality. In 2006 they introduce a new company logo which they change again in 2008 when they become an AMD authorized partner.
Today with us we have the Gainward GeForce GTX 560 Ti Good/Golden sample which most of their GS products it comes with their own custom cooler on it and a nice overclock out of the box. Of course you can overclock it even more especially if you up the voltages but unless you are a hardcore gamer/overclocker then i really don't recommend it. Anyways the Gainward model is one of the best and fastest GeForce GTX 560 Ti cards currently in the market and as you will also see later on it can play any game at any resolution, even DirectX 11 titles. Of course it can't compete against its older brother the GeForce GTX 580 but it was never ment to in the first place. Since numbers however speak louder than words let's continue and see what the latest GeForce GTX 560 Ti is capable of.
