MSI GTX560-Ti OC SLI Review

3D Mark Vantage

We all know Vantage tends to prefer the nVidia cards because of the PhysX element in the testing. Even so the GTX560-Ti SLI setup does well, being comparable to nVidias own twin-GPU card the GTX590 and far ahead of the similarly priced GTX580. It's worth noting that as the AA gets ramped up in the higher quality tests the gap between the GTX560-Ti SLI and its competitors narrows hugely until on the Extreme setting many of our cards are neck and neck.


3D Mark 11

Dispensing with the nVidia-biased Vantage and moving to 3D Mark 11 the GTX560-Ti SLI doesn't quite match the GTX590 and falls somewhere between the HD6870 CF and HD6970 CF results.

So for £400 a whole £150+ less than a 590/6990 you can get similar performance, not bad if you ask me. Sacrificing some AA in one game shouldn't really put you off and anyone with an AMD card can only have up to a maximum of 8x AA anyway.

If you have the money for a 590 that would ideally be the better option in the long run but if you are on a budget SLI MSI 560 TI's is a pretty damn good alternative.

Maybe, but don't forget that two 570's in SLI aren't listed in the bench results and there are many on the forums that speculate that they would be a better alternative to a 590. If your not looking for a single slot solution that is.
