GeForce GTX 280 vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448

Intro

The GeForce GTX 280 features a GPU core clock speed of 602 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 1107 MHz through a 512-bit bus. It also features 240 SPUs, 80 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448, which features core clock speeds of 732 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1280 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 448 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 40 Rasterization Operator Units.

In theory, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 will be 2% quicker than the GeForce GTX 280 overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 144000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 280 141696 MB/sec
Difference: 2304 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 280 should be a little bit (about 17%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448. (explain)

GeForce GTX 280 48160 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 40992 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 7168 (17%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 is superior to the GeForce GTX 280, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 29280 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 280 19264 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 10016 (52%)

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 maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

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