While dishing up a sneak peek of its upcoming GTX 560 GPU, NVIDIA has confirmed that the latest member of the Fermi family will be launched on May 17th, as previously rumoured.

NVIDIA tells us that the GTX 560 will shimmy in-between the GTX 460 and GTX 560 Ti - both in terms of price and performance - and in a single GPU system, apparently deliver enough oomph to play the latest gaming titles at resolutions up to 1,920x1,080 - whilst using features such as PhysX and 3D Vision.



NVIDIA's musings extend to putting the GTX 560 through its paces in upcoming titles such as Duke Nukem Forever and Alice: Madness Returns. The above video gives you just a little taste of what to expect, when the GTX 560 arrives next week.

interesting but doesn't really look to be much of a step up from the gtx 460, so i'll stick with this for a while yet i reckon.
Another to join the thousands of “new” graphics cards around this price/performance bracket? Every week there seems to be a different one announced. So glad I got a 5870 about 18 months ago. It was a lot of money, more than I'd intended to spend, but would appear to still outperform large portions of the graphics card market today (which just feels wrong…). Might even go for another for Crossfire to give me another couple of years out of it.
I may be wrong, but it seems that genuinely new, improved graphics card releases are getting further and further apart…

I sort of agree with the above that I'm not entirely sure theres a gap for this card but I disagree with the above on longevity of graphics cards.

I think the 8800GTX / GT aged very well and so have the 5850/5870. But if you go back cards like the 9700 Pro and 9800XT also lasted a very long time.

Certainly perhaps the lack of a new console generation and the lack of PC only games means that perhaps the hardware hasnt been pushed as hard as in the past, hence slowing development a fraction, but I think its wrong to say that its really significantly slower/faster than in the past.
