EVGA has taken the wraps off its GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win, a new graphics card with dual GF114 GPUs running in SLI. The GPUs are clocked at 850MHz, slightly higher than the GTX 560 Ti's base frequency of 822MHz. EVGA hasn't deviated from the 560 Ti's 4 GT/s memory speed or the amount of RAM typically associated with the GPU. Each graphics chip has access to 1GB of its own memory.
To fit everything onto the card, EVGA uses a lengthy 11.5" circuit board that might be difficult to cram into smaller enclosures. Getting the 2Win to play nicely with adjacent expansion cards may also prove difficult. Although the card's expansion plate only covers two slots, this side profile suggests the cooler's shroud could encroach on a third slot.
The outputs include a Mini HDMI connector and three DVI outputs. That DVI trio gives the card out-of-the-box support for Nvidia's 3D Vision Surround tech, which spreads glasses-assisted 3D over three displays.
EVGA says you'll need a 700W PSU with at least 50A of 12V power to run the 2Win. You'll also need to scrounge up $520 to buy the card at Newegg, which is a little bit more than the cost of two comparably clocked 560 Tis. Dropping over $500 on a graphics setup that effectively has only 1GB of memory seems a little perilous to me. Let's hope EVGA is cooking up one of these puppies with 2GB of RAM per GPU. After all, a pair of GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB cards will only set you back $540.
