GeForce GTX 560M Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 560M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.


Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF116 which has 4 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 775MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 625MHz.


Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it is suited for large laptops.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance identical to a desktop GeForce GTs 450.


System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 560M.

It depends. It can support 3GB of video memory but it can't certainly use them.

Buy one? Or buy a laptop with one?
It doesn't matter. You don't need 3GB when gaming at a laptop. Not even 2GB let alone 3GB. 1.5GB will suffice for any game out there.

I'm having problems when I run some games, not sure if it has to do with the GFX card or not. Whenever I play some games, I get random FPS drops that last about 15 sec every minute or so. That only happens in certain games like Dragon Age: Origins. I'm pretty sure it has nothing to so with my rig being outdated because I run more demanding games (Batman Arkham City) without facing that problem. So has anyone faced that problem and can help out?

is it really a good notebook gfx card?
-GD compare tool says HD4850 is 3% better, so GTX 560M could be quite good…

This GPU SHOULD be able to play all games on high settings with an average resolution but some might still require Medium settings, like Metro 2033.

Depends on the version. There at least three available whereas one is a fast 550M.

like pip said, there are a lot of different versions of the GT555M. Here is a little list. Highest card is the most expensive, lowest is the cheapest, hope this helps. :)
144 cores 709MHz (GF106), 128Bit GDDR5,
144 cores 590MHz (GF106), 192Bit DDR3
144 cores 590MHz (GF106), 128Bit DDR3,
96 cores 753MHz (GF108), 128Bit GDDR5,
144 cores 525 MHz (GF116), 128 Bit DDR3
