Looking at the card, you're not really going to be seeing anything that you haven't seen before. We've seen Palit use this cooler design on previous mid-range models and overall there's not much else to see outside of that looking front on.
Looking around the rest of the card, we've got two 6-Pin PCI-E power connectors at the back of the card. Closer to the front we've got a single SLI connector and connectivity comes in the form of HDMI, Dual-Link DVI and VGA.
Specifications between the GTX 560 and GTX 560 Ti are very similar; both cards offer 32 ROPs and 1GB of GDDR5 memory on a 256-bit memory bus. The main difference between the two cards is the Shaders with the Ti variant offering 384 and the plain GTX 560 we're looking at today carrying 336.
In the clocks department we're going to see that most companies opt to offer a pre overclock model with their own custom cooling solution. This isn't unusual as we've seen this a lot from NVIDIA partners and recent mid-range releases.
Comparing the clocks of the Palit GTX 560 Sonic Platinum to the GTX 560 Ti Sonic, they're actually exactly the same. The core comes in at 900MHz, which means the Shader clock comes in at 1800MHz and the 1GB of GDDR5 carries a clock of 4100MHz QDR.
As for the reference clocks, if we see any cards that carry them we should see a core clock of 810MHz, Shader clock of 1620MHz and the 1GB of GDDR5 should come in at an even 4000MHz QDR.
