Zotac GeForce GTX 560 SE unveiled

With all the fuss about the upcoming Kepler GPUs from Nvidia, it’s not surprising that Zotac’s latest reveal has been fairly much under the radar. The company has pushed out another 560 board, the GTX 560 SE to be precise.

The budget oriented video card has 1GB of GDDR5 memory on board, and boasts a core clock of 746MHz.

The shader clock runs at 1492 MHz and the memory clock at 3828MHz, with the card boasting 288 unified shaders and a 192-bit memory interface.

Compared to a standard 560, the memory bus is cut down from 256-bit to 192-bit, and that core clock speed is reduced from 800MHz, so don’t expect the performance to be quite on par.

In terms of ports, the GTX 560 SE comes with dual DVI ports, an HDMI and DisplayPort output.

Carsten Berger, marketing director at Zotac International, commented: “1080p resolution displays and Microsoft DirectX 11-enabled titles are affordable and become quite popular among gamers. Our new Zotac GeForce GTX 560 SE provides an excellent value for gamers that want to get their feet wet with 1080p and DirectX 11 gaming.”

The video board also comes bundled with a TrackMania 2 Canyon 3-Day Game Pass. Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but as we’ve already mentioned, this should be a pretty wallet friendly affair.
