When you first look at the 448 core GTX 560 Ti, you might make the fatal error of judging a graphics card by its cover. Visually it look identical to your average run of the mill 560 Ti’s. But don’t let the plastic cover deceive you for underneath the standard cover is a significant increase in hardware.

The first and most obvious of these upgrades is the 448 CUDA Cores as compared to the standard 384. With this 15% increase you may wonder why this is not designated as a GTX 565, but Nvidia has wanted to make it known that this card is not a new contender in their 500 series of cards.

On top of the increased number of CUDA Cores, this card also boast an increase to 1.2Gb of GDDR5 memory and the ability to use the card in 3-Way SLI.
