The Card




Checking out the card, we instantly get this feeling we're looking at a passive cooled card, but we're not. Instead, there are two fans behind the cooler and we've seen this kind of design before from another company on a higher end model. It's proven to be very strong and it will be interesting to see how it fairs on the mid-range beast that is the GTX 560 Ti.






Taking a look around the card, we can see towards the back we've got two 6-Pin PCIe power connectors here, while closer to the front we've got a single SLI connector giving us the ability to run two of these cards in SLI.




On the I/O side of things we've got a single HDMI port on the left and VGA port on the right, while in the middle we see two Dual-Link DVI connectors. In typical Palit fashion, we again have a pretty strong line-up in the I/O side of things.




The other thing that stands out on the card once we installed it in our system is the little LED lights that are present on the board, helping give off a red glow. It makes the card look great once installed and against our ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z that uses the same black / red color scheme, the card looks fantastic.





While there's no clear OC labeling on the card, the fact it's got the "Turbo" tag in it pretty much tells us that the card is going to be overclocked. Palit haven't gone too crazy, but they have given us a bump in both the core and memory department.




Above we can see the core comes in at 835MHz, slightly up on the default 822MHz. This in turn pushes the Shader to 1670MHz from 1645MHz. As for the 1GB of GDDR5, that's been bumped from 4008MHz QDR to 4100MHz QDR. It's nothing too crazy, but a nice little bump across the board that should yield some strong performance.
