The ASUS ENGTX 560 Ti Direct CU II TOP has been factory overclocked to 900 Mhz in order to provide excellent performance for gaming enthusiasts looking for a satisfying Direct X 11 experience. Like any GTX 560 Ti, this card is equiped with the GF114 chip for extra performance and extra PolyMorph and raster engines for a faster rate of tessellation. With the 822 MHz model priced at $250, and and the 900 MHz priced at $270, the factory overclocked version is a serious competition to other GTX 560 Ti cards on the market. However, the stock GPU clock of 900 MHz is merely a starting point for any overclocker that is willing to take this video card to its limit. As the Direct CU designation implies, this card is designed with an extremely efficient cooling system and equipped with high quality capacitors in order to withstand extremely high voltages. In fact, according to ASUS, the card was able to achieve a GPU clock of 1349 MHz with the use of liquid nitrogen. With these factors
mind, the testing of overclocking capabilities as well as overall performance seem to carry promising results. However, only the data after rigorous tests will prove this card to be worthy, so let's get to it.
