GeForce GTX 480 vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448

Intro

The GeForce GTX 480 uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 700 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 924 MHz on this particular model. It features 480 SPUs as well as 60 TAUs and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448, which comes with a clock speed of 732 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also uses a 320-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 448 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 40 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. 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 rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.

Essa série 5xx a única que tem diferença grande da GTX 480 é a GTX 590, porque de resto diferença quaze nula, imperceptivel enquanto se joga..
Fora o CxB da GTX 480 muito melhor doque a GTX 580...
