    ah the Ti suffix.

    i remember the awesome Geforce 4 Ti card i had. all my friends had Mx cards, i felt so much more superior.

    £200 price point to compete with ATI's 6950 1GB? sounds very likely to me.

    That 590 looks huge! Quite tempted with the 560 as a direct replacement of my 460.

    had decided to grab a 6850 toxic, but luckily the news broke on the release date of this so i held off. can't wait to see the review.

    My 460 hasn't arrived yet... but if I draw a 5 on it, I'll feel much better.

    bad news, nobody.

    looks like the shrink in shaders makes this seem very slow compared to tessellation unit in 6950.

    Got my 2 6950's for 200 each thanks to Quidco cashback, so I couldn't care less what ever tactic that nvidia could pull to compete. I've done the BIOS mod and it fully shows up as 2 6970's, so how the hell is the 560 going to be in any way worth it?

    Sounds great but only 1GB of memory is an instant turn of for me (planning a Eyefinity / Surround build).

    TechPowerUp hypothesises that this {Ti} could be a branding move to make the card appear superior to competing ATI cards such as the Radeon HD 6870 1GB and Radeon HD 6950 2GB.

    Er, how so?

    Extra letters make things sound cool, sad but true.

    It is probably so they can create sketches where one guys "I just got a Ti card", and the other guy says "I thought you were an nvidia man?" to which guy number one replies "I mean A ti, not ATI". This would continue on for some time, maybe one or both can be Canadian so you can have "A ti, eh"

    a multi moniter setup with a single card is always going to be dodgy
    most people still play at 1920*1080 or less still so 1gb is perfectly fine

    Will be hard to beat the 460 seeing how overclockable the 460 currently is.

    Oh come on, just admit you want your EVGA GTX 560 Ti F T W card :D
    Only if you compare it to the 6950, which retails at £230 minimum at the moment. I'm with Turbotab on this, it'll probably retail for £150 after a while and I reckon it'll launch at £180. Still, it appears to beat the 470, which is damn impressive!
    Judging by the overclockability of the 580 and 570, the 560 is going to be an overclocking monster.
