Gainward GTX560Ti 2GB Phantom Vs Club3D HD6790 CoolStream Edition

2. Meet the Gainward GTX 560 Ti 2048MB Phantom

In order to satisfy hardcore PC gamers' requirements, Gainward provided 4 different customized models of the Nvidia GeForce 560 Ti: Gainward GTX 560 Ti 2048MB "Phantom", Gainward GTX 560 Ti 1024MB "Phantom", Gainward GTX 560 Ti 1024MB "Golden Sample", and Gainward GTX 560 Ti 1024MB standard.

Today we have in our labs the Gainward GTX560 Ti 2048MB "Phantom" edition. The card sets at default GPU clock appearing to be 822 MHz, while its shaders and memory ended up at 1645 MHz and 2004 MHz respectively.

The Gainward GTX 560 Ti 2GB packaging is illustrated below. Across the front is a stylized image of the heatsink and there are various features listed across:

Gainward's packaging is great and as you see in the picture below the card as well as the components that come with it are securely placed into separate boxes:



Inside we find a basic bundle with software CD with Gainward's ExperTool tuning utility , a discount voucher for CUDA enable video editing software Super LoiLoScope (30 days free trial plus 25% discount to purchase full version), a quick start manual and Molex to PCIe power convertor:

The dual-slot card measures 7.5", which is 1.5" shorter than the reference model. Attached to the front of the card is a set of aluminium fins covered by a plastic shroud. Running through the fins are four copper heatpipes and beneath these are two fans which circulate air around the PCB and fins/pipes:

The card is equipped with Gainward's cooling technology, reinforcing the heat dissipation by two silent GR8 (Great 8cm) PWM fans; conducting the heat away by 4 pcs of Gainward Grand-Prix Heat-Pipes Hybrid 6 mm heat-pipes; dispersing overage heat to the air by the delicate shark sink fins.

With a load TDP at 170W, the card should be powered by two 6-pin PCIe PEG power connectors:

A single SLI connector sits at the top of the card letting us know we can combine two cards in multi GPU mode.

For the output connectors we have HDMI, 2x DVI and VGA:

That's all for the packaging and the card's looks. We installed the card and fired up the GPU-Z utility, which confirms the card's basic specifications:
