How well can the GeForce GTX 560 SLI run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 560 SLI graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 560 SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 560 SLI in your PC? There is around 6-12 months of top end gaming left in this card, at which point its graphics card replacement time, assuming the GeForce GTX 560 SLI is part of your PC gaming machine.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 560 SLI? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 161% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 897 games from the most demanding games today. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 95% better performance and can run 685 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

GeForce GTX 560 SLI Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 560 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 560 put together using NVIDIA's SLI Technology.


Architecture
The Fermi Architecture was first manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.


GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs Codenamed GF114-325-A1 which, together, offer 672 Shader Processing Units, 12 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at 810MHz.


Memory
Each GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002MHz.


Power Consumption
Power Consumption should not surpass 300W.


Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Performance Similar to a Single GeForce GTX 580.


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 560 SLI is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
