14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 560 is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 560 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 560 in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GTX 560 graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 560? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 310% better and can meet 901 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 560 would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 685 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 201% better performance.

GeForce GTX 560 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 560 is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.


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 equips a GPU Codenamed GF114-325-A1 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 336 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.


Memory
The 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 1001Hz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.


Performance
GeForce GTX 560 competes with Radeon HD 6850 and proves to be around 10% faster.


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 560 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

You could go for a card like mine. GTX 760s offer great performance at a price tag hovering around $250 (£148.98). If you do, be sure to buy a 2gb model as the 760 doesn't have enough of a memory bus to use a 4gb frame buffer.
