@al360ex: The Ti moniker is a kickback to the old days when Nvidia released the Geforce 4 Ti, which I believe was short for Titanium (correct me if i'm wrong as i could very well be after so many years).

 

What I can tell you is this: Nvidia revolutionized the enthusiast / gamer graphics card industry with the release of the Ti4600 and Ti4800 cards. They were awesome cards and many people continued using them well after the release of the infamous Geforce FX series cards (when Nvidia claimed the performance crown with the Radeon 9600 pro and 9800 pro, as well as the XT series).

Geforce 4 was awesome, but the FX series was a flat out faliure.

Looks almost identical to my GTS 450, sometimes worse as test shows, as long as it's at 1920x1080 resolution.

The GTX 560 Ti is a re-engineered 460, but with all the computational blocks enabled and a higher clock speed. So it's not just the same chip. The 560 is to the 460 as the 580 is to the 480.

Also, the benchmarks were run by Nathan at 1920x1200, 4xAA, 16x AF (where applicable) and all settings maxed out.

So it's more naming shenanigans from Nvidia? This is not really a 500-series card, but a souped up 400-series they've rebranded as a 500-series? Not cool Nvidia.

It's a souped-up 460 in the same sense that the 580 is a souped-up 480.

I was wondering, why the "Ti" at the end of the name ? Why not simply name it the GTX 560 ? And also, what are the settings for these FPS results ? Is it with everything maxed out ?

Thanks !
