Leadtek Release GTX 560Ti Hurricane
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Leadtek has released its WinFast GTX 560Ti Hurricane video card today. It features an improved cooler which is substantially more efficient than the reference design based off two 90mm fans and two 8mm copper heat pipes. The noise range of these two 90mm fans is from 21dBA to 43dBA so hopefully it will not sound like a Hurricane.
The rest is relatively standard; a 256 bit interface with 1GB of GDDR5 memory and a core clock speed of 822MHz which is not overclocked. Graphics tessellation is supported as this card is fully Direct X 11 compatible. Power consumption is in the region of 175W so it is very good for the performance you get. It offers support for NVIDIA 3D Vision, bringing a fully immersive stereoscopic 3D experience to PCs.
This model is equipped with a 2-way SLI connector and the rear panel contains two DVI-I connectors and one mini-HDMI connector. It also needs two 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors. These should be available within a month and will hit the GTX 560Ti sweet spot price of around £180/$250.
