Introduction

The GeForce GTX 560 is a strange GPU, in the sense that its manufacturer, NVIDIA, doesn’t set default clock rates for it. Therefore, it is up to the video card manufacturer to decide which clocks to use. The GeForce GTX 560 Multiview from Zotac works internally at 820 MHz, accesses memory at 4 GHz through a 256-bit interface, and has its processing engines working at 1,640 MHz – the same clock rates used on the standard GeForce GTX 560 Ti. The only difference between the two is the number of shader engines (336 vs. 384 on the Ti version). The Multiview model from Zotac allows you to connect up to three video monitors, a feature not available on regular models.

At USD 200, the Zotac GeForce GTX 560 Multiview is on the same price range as the Radeon HD 6870, although you can find the Radeon HD 6870 selling for less. In this review, we are going to compare the GeForce GTX 560 from Zotac with the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which has a price tag starting at USD 220.

In the table below, we compare the main specifications of the video cards included in our review. They are all DirectX 11 parts. The prices listed below do not include rebates. Prices were researched at Newegg.com on the day we published this review.
