Palit GeForce GTX 560 Ti Sonic 1GB
The box with Palit GeForce GTX 560 Ti Sonic 1 GB has the same size and design but different colors compared to the previous card’s packaging.
The accessories and the country of origin are the same, too. The Palit GeForce GTX 560 Ti Sonic has a retail price of $270, which is a mere $11 above the recommended price of Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti ($259).
The cooling system of this card features not one but two fans.
Despite that, the PCB is the same length (188 mm) as the Palit GeForce GTX 560 Sonic Platinum but the card itself is larger by 15 millimeters due to the cooler’s casing. Anyway, both cards from Palit are compact by today’s standards.
The previous card’s HDMI, DVI and VGA outputs are complemented here with a DVI-D connector placed in between two vent grids.
Two 6-pin power connectors and a SLI connector can all be found in their habitual places.
The PCB is exactly the same as the one of the above-discussed Palit GeForce GTX 560 Sonic Platinum.
The power circuit is the same, too.
The markings on the GPU are similar, as opposed to its configuration.
The GPU of the Palit GeForce GTX 560 Ti Sonic has 384 unified shader processors, 64 texture-mapping units and 32 raster operators. It is clocked at 900/1800 MHz as opposed to the reference GeForce GTX 560 Ti’s 822/1645 MHz. The clock rate is lowered to 51/101 MHz and the voltage is stepped down from 1 to 0.95 volts in 2D mode.
