First Look

Zotac's 560 Ti is constructed on a black PCB that is really only visible from the back of the card. A single centrally-located cooling fan housed in a shroud of sorts keeps temperatures in check. The cooling solution on this card is of the dual-slot variety which is standard for most mainstream and high-end cards these days. The fan shroud is black with yellow accents and features the Zotac name written prominently on the face while the fan blades are more of an orange color.

On the I/O end we find dual DVI connectors, a DisplayPort connector and an HDMI port. The unused real estate is slotted to allow warm air to flow out of the back of your case from the single cooling fan.

The entire unit is 4.37-inches by 8.25-inches, meaning it should fit into almost any standard size chassis and even most micro-ATX systems.

The top of the card reveals the SLI connector and dual 6-pin PCIe power connectors. On the front we can see a hint of the PCB and components underneath the shroud.

It's worth clarifying at this point that this is just one of six 560 Ti cards that Zotac offers. With an 822MHz core and 4000MHz memory clock, it falls into the lower end of available 560s. If you want something with a bit more horsepower, the 560 Ti OC offers a 905MHz core while the AMP! edition ramps things all the way up to 950MHz.

That pretty much concludes the photo tour. Let's move ahead and install the GTX 560 Ti in our test system.
