ASUS Releases Limited Edition GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II with 448 CUDA Cores
The new limited edition ASUS GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores DirectCU II features 448 CUDA cores instead of the regular 384. It gives gamers access to improved stability and overclocking with advanced DirectCU II cooling, resilient Super Alloy Power components, and the exclusive GPU Tweak tuning utility. With so many AAA PC games on the market, the new card presents a new golden standard.
More GPU-powered gaming goodness
The new limited edition GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores DirectCU II revamps the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 560 Ti GPU, going from 384 CUDA cores to 448, which compares very favorably with GTX 570 reference specifications, standing at 480 cores. The GPU clock on the new GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores DirectCU II runs at 732MHz, while the 1280MB of GDDR5 operate at 3.8GHz actual. The interface consists of a large 320-bit data bus. As such, the revised GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores DirectCU II offers noticeably better benchmarking and real world gaming performance compared to previous GTX 560 Ti versions.
Cooler, faster, more stable – low noise and high performance graphics
As with many ASUS enthusiast graphics cards, the new limited edition GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores ships with DirectCU II cooling. Direct-contact copper heat pipes remove heat quickly from the GPU to the massive heat sink, aided by twin 100mm sound-dampening quality fans for rapid dissipation. While low in noise emissions during both idle and full load, the GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores DirectCU II works 20%* cooler than reference for better stability and greater overclocking potential. It also offers the benefit of exclusive ASUS Super Alloy Power formulation. Power delivery components stand up better to heat and stress with improved manufacturing techniques and materials. For example, chokes have an actual concrete core to eliminate damaging vibration and buzzing noise, while the solid state capacitors are rated for 50,000 hours of usage – 2.5 times the longevity of commodity capacitors.
Extensive yet intuitive tuning with ASUS GPU Tweak
The GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores DirectCU II comes bundled with new ASUS GPU Tweak, a real time overclocking and performance management utility. It offers accurate data and settings for core and memory clocks, core voltages, and fan speeds on up to four graphics cards (perfect for NVIDIA® SLI® setups). GPU Tweak uses a live design that updates graphics card drivers and BIOS versions automatically should users choose to enable this feature, and integrates seamlessly with the popular GPU-Z graphics card diagnostics program from TechPowerUp. Users can also tap enhanced graphics card BIOS info, with the ability to create custom profiles for different games and applications.
Better gaming in 5760 x 1080**
Thanks to increased processing power, the limited edition GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores DirectCU II presents improved optimization for NVIDIA® technologies that make gaming deeper and more impressive. NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ consists of the industry’s best 3D gaming platform, now supported by most major releases and an extensive back catalogue of titles. It works on up to three screens and at up to 5760 x 1080**. Gamers can also enable PhysX™ support, leading to more realistic game worlds, as seen in recent releases such as Batman: Arkham City™ from Warner Bros. Entertainment.
*Performance figures may vary depending on system configuration and usage conditions
**Three screen 5760 x 1080 performance requires two GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores cards in SLI™. It is important to note the limited edition ASUS GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores DirectCU II does not replace existing GTX 560 Ti models. Available in select markets while stocks last.
