Question 560 "SE" ? What's an SE ?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130770

Did they do something to this one from an original 560 or the 560 ti to make it $50 less?

edit: Less = less performance ?

SE basically means "suck edition"
810MHz Core clock, 1620MHz Shader clock, 256 bit 4008MHz memory, and 336 Cuda cores - GTX 560
776MHz Core clock, 1552MHz Shader clock, 192 bit 3828MHz memory, and 288 Cuda cores - GTX 560 SE
It's to sell chips that needed more clusters turned off to function.

SE means Second Edition, or in some cases Special Edition, but its Second Edition in this case.

I Suppose its a rebadge of the GTX460 SE which i have, and sorry to tell you but it does NOT suck.

For that price its a pretty damn good deal, hell my 460 SE was 150 when i got it like a year or 2 ago and handles everything i throw at it, even BF3 at high settings.

a gtx560 se is just a cut down gtx560 with 288sp and 192bit bus. overall its basically dead even with a 7770. in BF 3 though its much faster so if that game is important then a gtx560 se is decent card. other than that one game, a 7770 makes much more sense as its way more efficient and cheaper.

MSI 7770 GHZ edition $110 after MIR

Works out cheaper than any of the 560 se's on Newegg right now. Not a massive difference, but cheaper non the less.

As you thought Rodger, yes it's slower. SE= Slow Edition as some like to joke, but it's very true. Or to be more accurate, "Slower Edition". It is weaker than a regular 560.

All right. We seem to have established it's a bad "medium range" card with the need to still shell out for a 560 or 560ti instead .
