Gigabyte reveals its GeForce GTX 560 Ti 4480 Cores. This model follows the reference clock speeds of 732MHz for the core, 1464MHz for the shaders and 3800MHz for the 1280MB GDDR5 memory, but packs the company's Windforce 3X vapor-chamber cooler.
The Ultra Durable VGA PCB makes use of a 2 oz copper layer to improve cooling and electrical stability, ferrite core chokes, Japanese solid-state capacitors, low RDS (on) MOSFETs, and tier-1 Samsung GDDR5 memory chips. The Windforce 3X Vapor-Chamber cooler makes use of a large vapor-chamber base from which heat is conveyed to aluminum fin stacks. These are ventilated by three outward-inclined 80 mm fans. Like every other GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores, this card will be available in limited quantities, in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Russia, and the Nordics. It will be priced under US $300.
