Product Description

Product Description

ENGTX560 is factory overclocked to perform at an incredible 850MHz, 40MHz faster than stock performance, resulting in higher frame rates in games. PC performance seekers know overvolting gets the extreme results they crave. This is why ASUS’ exclusive Voltage Tweak is so cool – it goes deep into graphics cards to supply them with more energy, so they deliver more speed and graphics-pushing. You will enjoy complete control over tweaking through the intuitive user interface – making it easy to get to 50%* gain in performance.

Based on ASUS DirectCU architecture, which uses copper heat pipes in direct contact with the GPU to speed up heat dissipation for over 20% cooler performance, DirectCU II takes cooling further with twin 80mm fans for doubled airflow.

Splendid takes PC graphics capabilities to the next level by enhancing depth and color intensity in real time. The advanced Area Pixel Processing Algorithm carefully evaluates each pixel in every frame and adjusts them based on smaller regions without affecting the whole picture. Colors in each region are dynamically optimized according to conditions most favorable to the human eye. This helps Splendid become especially effective for human skin tones, green stretches of grass and trees; and blue skies and seas.

Normally, videos played back on a PC will never look as good as when viewed on a TV, because most PCs do not come equipped with the image-processing unit commonly found in consumer electronic display devices. The images lack depth and appear grayish, which is one of the main reasons why many users are reluctant to build a home entertainment system with their computers. The Splendid Video Enhancement Technology is the missing link that improves video display on PCs to satisfy the high visual demands of movie buffs and hardcore sport fans.

I have had the NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTS 512mb for some time and as new games come out it was starting to get a bit outdated. So i saved up some money and got this card, and what a card. it has run every game i own on full settings getting >60 fps on most and even >120 fps on some older games.

I will list a few of the FPS rates i got with this card, so will list my system specs first.

My System:
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional x64 with Service Pack 1
Processer: Intel® Core(tm) i5-750 Processor 2.66GHz(3.2GHz Turbo)
Motherboard: ASRock P55 Pro
RAM: 4GB (2x 2GB) Kingston DDR3 1333MHz
Graphics Card: ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 DirectCU II OC 1GB DDR5
HDD: Samsung HD103SJ 1TB SATAII 7200rpm
PSU: 700W CiT ATX Black edition
Monitor: Acer X203 20"

Unless over wise stated, all readings are from a resolution of 1600by900 with settings on highest they possibly can and with vsync disabled.

Games:
Grand Theft Auto IV: 61.96fps
GRID: 135fps (ranged from 110 during massive crashes to 150 but was normally 130 to 140)
HOMEFRONT: 60fps (Directx11)
Far Cry 2: 59.51fps (Directx9), 81.81fps (Directx10)
Mafia 2: 31.2fps(PhysX Highest), 66.9fps(PhysX Off)
Left 4 Dead: 80fps to 180fps depending on location and number of infected.
Left 4 Dead 2: 60fps to 160fps depending on location and number of infected.
Battlefield Bad Company 2: 50fps to 90fps, average of about 60 to 70fps

This card has performed very well and for the price its a bargain.

One piece of advice, this card comes with some free utilities, DO NOT install the GamerOSD it will cause your driver to work poorly and the result will be you have to re-install the driver each boot.

Ordered on a friday, recieved on tuesday and very swift delivery. Box and packaging was neat and very slick. Contents included 2x molex to 6-pin and 2 adapters, drivers etc.

Graphics card is a 2 fan monster, solidly built and very heavy. Also its quite long so be prepared to push some cables out of the way if you have a small case.

Performance is excellent, even on a pci-e 1.0 spec board running a phenom x4 9550. The cooling system is really good, the fans sit idling at 11% speed and the temp 25C, under load it goes no more than 60C.

In closing, this is a totally awesome card I'd recommend it to friends.

I'm not super up to date with technology, and it took me until a few weeks ago to replace my 8800 GTS for this card. I was torn between the GTX 560 and the GTX 560 Ti, and after hearing that you can overclock this card to a similar level I decided to buy the non-ti.

If you're not too hot on your techno-lingo, then here's a few simple facts about the card.

It runs Battlefield 3 and Skyrim comfortably at 1080p, high graphics. Full ultra in BF3 produces a small amount of lag but is manageable. It is relatively quiet (even though I've been having complications making it get a bit noisy) and easy to install - it is quite a long card however, so keep in mind that you may have to change around some things in your case (my HDD was in the way).

The drivers it comes with are outdated, so get the ones online from Nvidia. after a short install it should run fine and really improve the quality of your gaming.

It also looks cool, and comes in a very neat presentation box. A definite must for someone building a gaming pc on a relatively small budget.

I was so pleased with the increase in my graphics performance after installing this card that I bought a second card for another PC, Can't remember if this was the first or second card. I know I had a problem trying to source a second card because i wanted a matched set in case In the future I decided to run them in SLI, The difficulty in sourcing a second card is a fairly good indication of this cards popularity, A good mid range gaming card with high level performances on standard monitors. I run 2 monitors from this card and so far there have been no issues. runs well in my TV room system and drives a 46 inch HI Def tv with ease.

This graphics card was recommended to me by a friend and is defiantly worth the money, currently used to beta test Planetside 2 with a good 80+ FPS, played Tribes Ascend, Battlefield 3, Blacklight Retribution and many more on this card and the result was flawless, the even better bit about this card is the temperature is always below 80 degree centigrade!

The Asus software that come with this card means when even more demanding games are release you can easily ramp the clock speed up so that it can run smoothly.

The card can also be used with an SLI bridge.

My rig is
3rd Generation Intel® Core(tm) i7 3770K 3.50GHz Socket LGA1155
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit
ASUS P8Z77-V Intel Z77 (Socket 1155) Motherboard
Novatech PowerStation Black Edition 1000W Silent ATX2 Modular Power Supply
Window 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS

ONE WORD OF WARNING
If you have never constructed a PC I strongly recommend using the PCI-e cables from your PSU instead of using 4 Molex cables to power this Graphics Card.
