I did check my facts (although I can make mistakes anyway).
The entry for the 560Ti is very recent. It does affect the wine "guess". Your assertion that registry overrides both is true. Only when it happens, stuff has already happened.
The override happens only on init_driver_info, after quirks have been applied, for example.
Check your facts/code?
