Performance in Simulators
Well, you can’t win everywhere, and GeForce GTX 560 Ti confirms that. The new card manages to compete successfully only against Radeon HD 6870. But, frankly speaking, the new Nvidia solution is designed as a competitor to Radeon HD 6870 right from the start; secondly, we see a noticeable lag only in 2560x1600; and thirdly, even in this resolution the performance is sufficient for relatively comfortable gaming, although the fans of the car racing genre may not be satisfied with only 30 fps.
Performance in Strategies
The new member in GeForce GTX 500 family continues delivering high minimal performance. Although GeForce GTX 560 Ti doesn’t do as well in 2560x1600 as GeForce GTX 570, however, even 18 fps look really great against the background of Radeon HD 6870 or Radeon HD 6950, especially since this game seems to be quite playable even at low minimal fps rate.
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
The new Nvidia card failed to cope with 2560x1600 resolution in StarCraft II game, but nevertheless, it managed to outrun its direct competitor, Radeon HD 6870, in average performance. I have to say that Radeon HD 6950 also doesn’t work any wonders in this mode, but the subjective level of gaming comfort it provides is seriously higher. Although the price of this comfort is quite high, too. GeForce GTX 560 Ti did really well in lower resolutions. If your monitor supports resolutions up to 1920x1200 and you like StarCraft II, then it doesn’t make sense for you to overpay for a Radeon HD 6950.
