I'd be very interested to see how much gain in performance that may warrant an upgrade worthiness.
Any link would be very helpful.
My rig: i5-2500k @4.2ghz, GB gtx460s (sli), 8gb Patriot Viper Extreme 1866

Yes. Overall about 30% if my memory serves me correct.

If you don't mind results from the end of February, i compared benchmarking with the three fastest single-GPU graphics cards from each vendor at the time – GTX 580/570/480 and HD 6890/6950/5870 versus the more mid-range GTX 560/460 & GTX 450 SLI, and HD 6870 and HD 5870 CrossFire.

i'll sent you a PM link to the article. Over the past 7 months, any percentage of change would be in favor of the GTX 560 Ti as the driver changes favor it a bit.

On the chart, the GTX 560 is the GTX 560 Ti (there was no non Ti at the time)

As a point of comparison, here is what I'm getting:



If I remember correctly, this was with the CPU at x45 and MSI's release drivers. I've always run the cards at stock OC.

My 460 sli though can still crank out respectable fps in most current games in S3D with almost everything maxed out except a couple of games such as Metro2033 and BC2.
That said, now I 'm going to have to deal with a new line up being released later this year i.e. BC3, COD7, Arkham City etc. A pair of 460 may not cut it anymore, be more specific in S3D!
Looking ahead in the future for ugradeability may never be a bad thing with cost per card being a biggest factor.
Reading AlienBabelTEch aka ABT site (courtesy of Apoppin, thank you!) benchmark I was shocked if not disbelief seeing a pair of 560ti really destroys mine setup.
The 560 ti is definitely in my radar scope or on a short list for near future upgrade consideration.
