GeForce GTX 295 vs GeForce GTX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 295 uses a 55 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 576 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 999 MHz on this specific model. It features 240 SPUs along with 80 Texture Address Units and 28 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 560, which comes with a core clock speed of 810 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1001 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is made up of 336 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 295 will be a lot (more or less 103%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 560. (explain)

GeForce GTX 295 92160 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 45360 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 46800 (103%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 295 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 295 32256 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 25920 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6336 (24%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.

hi.. gtx 295 is about 30+ k .& gtx 560 is about 12 k .. so batter buy 2 card of 560 ( 295 is a quad core ) thx

Akazzdip Rey says:

Yeah! But if you buy a gtx 295 , you are free from low fps in gaming. Gtx 295 is similar fast as gtx 660. I'm enjoying it a lot!

Joshua says:

My 560 runs quite smooth compared to my 295 SLI setup. It runs Crysis 3 very well, whereas the 295 couldn't play at all due to DX11 incompatibility.
