There have already been rumours suggesting that NVIDIA is working on a vanilla GTX 560 SKU - one, which drops the Titanium (Ti) suffix.

Word now has it that NVIDIA has apparently pencilled in May 17th, as the day to usher in its newest arrival.

As for exact specifications, the picture is still somewhat hazy. Barring a point of contention suggesting that the GTX 560 will debut with core speeds exceeding 800MHz, it is suggested that our conjecture in the above table should give a good feel of things.

It would be reasonable to assume, of course, that more titbits will surface as the rumoured launch date draws nearer.

Bad move by nVidia on the nomenclature. It's good to have decent cards at differing price points but to the uneducated customer the ‘Ti’ suffix could easily go unnoticed; considering there will be a noticable performance difference they really should change the number, GTX 455 anyone?
Aside form clock speeds, are SM's, texture units etc exactly the same as the GTX 460's?
Sounds like an attempt to get rid of binned chips, that and add in extra confusion so people will buy one thinking they are getting the better card, like they did with gtx460SE
Although the nomenclature is confusing Nvidia looks like they're locking up the mid-range with their recent offerings.
