GeForce GTX 560 vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 810 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1001 MHz on this particular model. It features 336 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 822 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1002 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to 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.
