Default GTX 570 vs 2xGTX 560 Ti in SLI

How would the performance of a single GTX 570 compare ti 2xGTX 560 Ti cards in SLI ?

Thanks!

2 GTX560 will kill GTX570 in performance. one overclocked gtx 560 ti will match a stock gtx 570 by itself.

Eh, highly overclocked would match a stock 570 or close. A 560ti-448 would be closer.

But yeah, SLI 560ti's would trounce the 570.

560ti's in SLI will destroy a 580 so yeah a lot better then a 570.

SLI 560ti nearly matches a GTX 590, let alone a GTX 570.

sli are about equivalent to a 590, seeing as they are almost the same thing, however the 560 can get thier clocks up higher, but the 590 has better scaling, so they are about the same, sli 560 448, well thats just sick :P

So, 570 vs 560Ti sli, well, if all SLI works as it should, they would absolutely destroy the 570, and thats not including overclocks.

That is being rather melodramatic.

OP it is hard to give a good answer without knowing what res you play at. Generally 560Ti will hose a single 570. Now lets say you game at 25X14 etc (especially with AA turned up) you will have issues with the frame buffer on the 560Ti filling up. As is the case with AFR (alternate frame rendering) that SLI uses adding a second 560Ti for SLi does not give one twice the frame buffer (vram). Point is if you game at 19X12 or lower 560Ti SLI can be a great choice. However over 19X12 one may fill the frame buffer and cause a bottleneck. I run 25X14 and with 570 SLI I have to manage my in game setting in order to avoid running out of vram.

Hope that helped.

I will be gaming at 1080 resolution.
How does it compare with a 570 in sli?
How about an OC 570 vs a 580?

SLI 560 TI's are about 30-40% faster than a 580 (extrapolate that to a 570's performance)
A Single OC's 570 vs 580 the 580 is still going to win.

Naturally 570's in SLI will be more powerful than 560TI's but at 1080P resolution that is going into depths of overkill.

You're right, but it's not really melodramatic, I actually had a EVGA GTX590 Classy for a bit and I RMA'ed/got reimbursed by NCIX (no $$$ loss) and got 2 X 560Ti's twin FrozrII/OC (and pocketed the $250 diff) and I get the exact same 3Dmarks11 Pscore (P8500)....but yes, at higher res than 1080P, 590 has the advantage....

If I had to buy today (instead of April last year) I'd go 2 X MSI 560Ti Twin Frozr III 448 cores
