Default EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win Dual GPU Review Comment Thread

Dual GPU cards are rarities these days since the amount of time, effort and engineering capital that needs to be dedicated is substantial. While most board partners usually avoid designing these high end niche products, EVGA has jumped into the pool head first with their new GTX 560 Ti 2Win. Packing a pair of GF114 cores and 2GB of memory, this new card should have what it takes to effectively bridge the gap between NVIDIA's GTX 580 and GTX 590.

Haven't finished reading the review yet but I will say I LOVE the idea of videos of actual gameplay.

Great review SKYMTL as always.
But The performance is ok but nothing to really run out and buy it.
Like you said at the end there, you can buy two 560 Ti's and get close to the same performance and pay less. For $519 you could get a GTX 580, now not the top model but still.
Anyways that's just me. Just my 2 cents. If Kepler was out sooner like what they had hoped they would not have made this card.

Thanks. I figured it was easier and more "visual" than talking about each in-game benchmark sequence in the review itself.

However, I will upload a bit higher quality vids over the weekend. I have no idea what happened between converting the original .AVI file from FRAPS and the final result....

SKYMTL I was wondering do you know what the FPS were on the game play. Just to see what the card gets.

Kinda confused on the gtx560 sli performance.

I have the 560ti's in SLI at 1920x1200 with the ultra preset running on the latest drivers. (4xAA, HBAO, All ultra. AA post on high)

My performance during all maps on multiplayer are as follows at stock clocks:
Indoor : 95fps average, 70fps minimum
Outdoor: 70fps average, ~40fps minimum

Overclocked to MSi 560ti hawk edition gives a simple 4-6fps boost.

Having a non-sli mobo, this sounds like a trouble free option to get good performance on a "budget". I'm not sure I am ready to shell out 500$ for a video card but once they drop in price a little, it could be a good contender.

Don't know if anyone noticed, but in the overclocking section, you refer to the ASUS Matrix Platinum

Quote:
Overclocking the Matrix Platinum wasn’t exactly the easiest experience but with a good amount of EVGA Precision tweaking we were able to dial in relatively good overclock frequencies which resulted in a significant performance increase across the board. Here are a few of our most notable results:
Also would of liked to see a comparison to the GTX 590. Is it safe to assume it was near the same performance?

Other then that, good review man!

Use the single player mission Rock and a Hard Place. I realized I didn't post a gameplay video of that but I benchmark from after the tank attack to the assault on the Russian rocket truck position.

It is by far the most demanding in the game.
