Graphics chip maker Nvidia (Nasdaq: NVDA) launched a new chip in its GeForce GTX family - GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
GTX 560 Ti is the newest addition to the company's Fermi line of chips on the DirectX 11 (DX11) platform for the PC gaming sector. The product is likely to compete with AMD's Radeon HD 6870 graphics card.
Nvidia's latest graphics card's specification includes a memory of 1 gigabyte (GB), frequency of 822MHz, 8 tessellation engines and 384 CUDA core.
The GeForce GTX 560 Ti also provides the graphics horsepower and video bandwidth needed to experience more than 500 games and high-definition Blu-ray movies in stereoscopic 3D on a single display or spanning across three screens.
When compared to the closest competitive product, the GTX 560 Ti is up to 65 percent faster in today's newest DX11 tessellated games, and 30 percent faster in previous-generation DX9 and DX10 games, Nvidia said in a statement.
The product, which is available immediately, comes at an estimated selling e-tail price starting at $249 from the world's leading add-in card partners, including ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, Leadtek, MSI, Palit.
