ASUS GTX560Ti 448 Core DirectCU II Review


Despite being a limited product and only available in certain countries, including the UK, the 448 Core version of the nVidia GTX560Ti has divided opinion between those who like the cheeky bit of extra power available when compared to the standard GTX560Ti, and those who think it's expensive enough to be pointless, considering the GTX570 is only about a tenner more.

So with the ASUS GTX560Ti 448 DirectCU II in our sweaty palms, let's see if this can help clarify things a bit. Although the main point from that immense title is that nVidia should have called it the GTX565 if only to save us all needing widescreen monitors to read the product name.

Technical Specifications

Apart from the DirectCU II cooler, the ASUS version is identical to the stock option, with the standard 732MHz core. Hopefully the excellent cooler will allow us to romp towards 1GHz.

Thanks Tom for another great review. Seems like Asus is really big on these bulky coolers. I would still very much prefer MSI and Gigabyte's coolers for performance/silence and that they save a bit more space for parts and upgrades. Quote

i have 2 cards with the dcu ii coolers and unless you either brace them so they dont sag or have a silverstone (inverted mobo)case,,, your temps will not be anything special....


if properly installed....(asus' fault not toms) you'll have a hard time hitting 60c even cf-sli'd and oc'd....

idle temps are a pedestrian 30-33c but thats idle

just my exp...
