GeForce GTX 560 vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 810 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1001 MHz on this particular card. It features 336 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which has a GPU core clock speed of 822 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1002 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 384 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 560 45360 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 7248 (16%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti will be a little bit (more or less 1%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce GTX 560, and also will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 25920 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 384 (1%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.

Well, the 560 seems much better then the 560 ti considering the price difference in online stores, the 560ti is almost 50% more expensive compared to the 560.

En SLI la 560 es la mejor opcion, por precio y consumo, la TI no le veo nada bueno la verdad, de hecho tengo la 560 y en breve comprarĂ© la otra, os aconsejo ASUS pues la refrigeracion es la mas optima, ahora mismo la tengo a 27Âș sin refrigeracion liquida.
