The hamsters are doing fine. It's their drunk cousin Larry that's screwing things up for the entire family....

It's always hard to call when cards are this closely match (one beating the other by a decent amount depending on the game, etc), but I've always felt that nvidia is fair to charge a small premium for their cards over ATI by offering more benefits. Still, I'd like to see this 560 match the MSRP of the 6870 and it looks like it does, so good job for nvidia... now the problem arises with waiting for the 560 to start having sales/rebates like every other card that's been out for more than a couple weeks :P

Well, if my computer burnt in the fire, I might pick up one of these to tide me over until the end of the year (if I don't find a great BST deal that is...)

Nice review... I never asked before: do you have a full set of harware on site to re-test benchmarks for all your charts with new drivers/patches?

at 200$ imo not worth it cause you can get the zotac 560 ti OC at 210-40MIR=170$ atm for example, but im sure prices will drop once supply starts to exceed demand like it always does...
Mail in rebates suck serious ass and if I can save $50 on a card that is almost as fast as the Ti why not?

i agree with others. reduce the amount of offerings, instead of more and more. some of the differences are minor

getting this broad range of every little performance area is getting a bit silly
especially when some of them its only under $30.00 difference in price

sadly you are not saving 50$ ur saving nearly none as pretty much all reference 560ti already cost 200$ with the best deal I could find being an OCed one at merely 10$ more before factoring in the 40$ MIR (yes i hate MIRs too but can't argue that even without the MIR its still a better deal)

Question here: that GTX460 1GB is a reference card right? What would happen if both the 560 and 460 had the same clocks? Which one would come up top?

Compared to the GTX 460 1GB, No.
