Leadtek WinFast GTX 560 OC 1 GB

The Leadtek WinFast GTX 560 OC 1 GB is shipped in a large and beautiful box with a picture of a leopard on its front.

You can learn about the card's model name, memory amount and pre-overclocked frequencies from the text on the box. The accessories include two power cables, a DVI adapter, an installation guide, and a CD with drivers.

The Leadtek WinFast GTX 560 OC is smaller than the previous product although its cooling system has heat pipes and two fans, too.

As opposed to the Inno3D iChill GTX 560 Ti, this card is going to block only one adjacent expansion slot. The Leadtek WinFast GTX 560 OC is 231 millimeters long.

These are the graphics card’s outputs:

The power and MIO connectors are the same as those of the previous product:


The Leadtek doesn’t have an additional heat-spreading plate. The hottest components of its 4-phase power system are cooled with a small aluminum heatsink.

The Nvidia GF114-325 revision A1 processor is dated the 9th week of 2011. It's manufactured on 40nm technology.

The GeForce GTX 560 GPU has 48 unified shader processors and 8 texture-mapping units less than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Each has 32 raster operators. The Leadtek WinFast GTX 560 OC complies with these specs. As you know, Nvidia specified a GPU frequency range rather than a single frequency for the GeForce GTX 560, and Leadtek set the GPU clock rate of their card at a modest 850 MHz. That’s not high compared to the previously tested products from Palit and MSI. On the other hand, this explains the attractive letters OC in the model name. The GPU voltage is 1.025 volts in 3D mode. In 2D mode the voltage is lowered to 0.875 volts while the GPU clock rates are reduced to 51/101 MHz.
