Can't wait for this to drop - could be just the right balance of performance (inc folding) and price!

only reason i hadn't picked up the msi gtx 460 hawk for $180 ($160 after mir) was due to my cell might be crapping out on me and the one i want is $200, now that the 560 is getting a little more concrete both in specs and launch date, that gives me another reason to hold off. i may have to break out an old phone for 6 months so i can grab this.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the 560 will be the new enthusiast card of choice. I reckon it'll pull off performance similar to a 470 - and that's before overclocking, which it'll probably excel at.

Is 1gb enough? If its faster than the 470 or the 480 It could use more.

I'm guessing it's supposed to cater for 1920x1200 and below, in which case 1GB should be fine.

So if it's based on GF104, does it have the power efficient transistors and vapour chamber hsf?

This card seems like an improvement and could be the new card of choice for performance/price balance but I'm wondering something else...
I don't really know enough about this sort of thing but if its based on the same gf104 as the 460 just with an extra section unlocked. Could it be possible to unlock a 460 to a 560? (assuming the locked off section is only disabled, not somehow removed and also not faulty) Maybe at a lower clock speed but still with an increase in performance. I think a similar thing was done with some of the 465's unlocking to 470's(some point of view's maybe?)

I doubt that it's going to be faster than a 480, The 570 is usually on par with the 480. So I suspect the numbers to be around the 470, give or take. Just a hunch. Although the 470 is 448 stream processors. I wonder if They've made the improvements on the GF104 chip that they did for the 110's? Hopefully better thermals for overclocking

Err, you do know the 460 was almost as fast as the 470 don't you. The fermi redesign put it between the 465 & 470.

Depended on the game and the settings, plus it needed a pretty handsome overclock to do that in every case. The 465 was just crap. http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/gra...-hawk-review/1

I don't think it'll unseat the 570's spot, why would Nvidia do that? Plus the numbers don't show as much horsepower under the hood as the 570. I think that the 560 will probably run about the speeds of the 470, that's all I'm saying.

If you really over clocked the 460 it just about reached stock 470 speeds. But stock v stock it was considerably slower.

it may beat the 6950 if the price is right, well generally nvidia counterparts are faster, only problem is the price,.lol

A 460 at or around 800-850 core clock can at least match a GTX470 in the round (or at least be within a few percent to make the difference inperceptible).

The product placement for this 560 seems slightly odd though.

As it currently stands there is only a small gap (in terms of real world gaming performance) between the HD6950 - GTX570 - HD6970 - GTX580. If the GTX560 is designed to be slightly faster than the HD6950 then it will be VERY close to the GTX570 making the latter seem slightly pointless (kind of like what happened to the GTX470 when the GTX460 launched).

Hopefully the 560 will significantly undercut the HD6950 in price otherwise it might be a bit of a hard sell. Of course if it does undercut the HD6950 pricing AND is faster, then what happens to the GTX570? Are we going to see another GTX470 style fire sale?

Anyone want to say if it's aimed at the HD6870? Seems more like it than the HD6950. It can't possibly cost more than $250 anyhow.

ILL go along with the $250 price. $275-$300 for soo the called high end models. I dought there will be much over clocking head room as its the same cards fully enabled. ill guess 950/1900 max though 1000/2000 would be sweet!

Tradition dictates the 560 will sit between the 6870 and 6950 in price and performance.

6870 < 560 < 6950 < 570 < 6970 < 580

NVidia likes to fill in the gaps in AMD/ATI's lineup. As has been mentioned already, they're not going to place it anywhere hear the 570, they'd rather make people choose a 560 over an AMD card than another of their own.

The gap is mighty small right now. Makes it a bit problematic. Or at least good for prices.
