Gigabyte GTX560 Ti SOC

Gigabyte GTX560 Ti SOC


When we reviewed the reference GTX560Ti a month ago we found it completed the nVidia dominance of the major gaming GPU market. Hugely overclockable, quiet, great performance. It really was all things to all men.

Today we’re taking a look at the high-end Gigabyte Super Over Clock (SOC) variant which comes with a big overclock out of the box and a twin-fan cooler compared to the single fan of the reference design.

How does this fare when compared to already brilliant reference design? Let’s find out.

Technical Specifications

The easiest thing to spot as the major upgrade is that GPU Core speed. 1000MHz. This is, by 50MHz, the fastest GTX560Ti available to purchase. Obviously that’s a serious selling point.
