Now let’s take a look at summary diagrams to get a general view of the performance of the dual-processor card from EVGA. The first pair of summary diagrams shows the difference between the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win and the ordinary GeForce GTX 560 Ti.

The EVGA card is 74-86% faster in the FSAA-less mode and 86-89% faster with enabled FSAA. These average numbers are somewhat spoiled by the low performance in World of Planes and the lack of data in Total War: Shogun 2 at 2560x1600. Otherwise, the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win can be said to be twice as fast as the GTX 560 Ti.

The second pair of summary diagrams helps us compare the GeForce GTX 580 and the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win.

Save for World of Planes, the EVGA card is 26-30% and 29-34% ahead of the GTX 580 with FSAA turned off and on, respectively.

The last thing to mention is the summary resuls table:

Conclusion

The EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win is a superb top-end graphics card which is about 30% faster than the GeForce GTX 580 and twice as fast as the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. And it comes at the same price as most versions of GeForce GTX 580! Even if you take a previously overclocked GTX 580 or overclock a regular modification to something like 900/1800/4600 MHz, it will still be slower than EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win. So, if you are ready to spend $520 on your graphics card and are not afraid of the occasional slips of SLI technology in certain games, you can hardly find a better offer (the upcoming Radeon HD 7970 is unlikely to be available for $550 in the first two or three months after its release).

Well, there is something that can be improved even further in this innovative EVGA product. Since memory chips are very inexpensive these days, they could equip this card with 2 gigabytes of memory per each GPU. Considering the excellent overclocking potential of the 0.4ns GDDR5 chips, the memory frequency could also be easily increased from 4008 to 4400 MHz. The cooler could be made quieter by replacing the two noisier AVC fans with the quieter PowerLogic ones. The resulting product would be unrivalled, especially if its manufacturing cost remained at the same level.

In Conclusion we would like to award EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win graphics accelerator with our Ultimate Innovation title:

We hope that EVGA will continue the innovative approach in developing unique top-performance graphics cards like that.
