Dozens of manufacturers released interesting variants of the GTX 560 ever since NVIDIA officially launched it. (Do refer to our previous article for more information regarding Nvidia GeForce GTX 560.) PALIT has three models for the GTX 560 graphics card and we get to have our hands on two of them, PALIT GTX 560 OC Edition and PALIT GTX 560 2GB version. As you can see from the table, the PALIT's GTX 560 cards use a shorter length PCB (printed circuit board). The PALIT GTX 560 OC Edition offers a slight overclock in the memory frequency from 2004MHz to 2010MHz while the PALIT GTX 560 2GB features 2GB of memory at default frequencies.
