VS

GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs GeForce GTX 650 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti features core speeds of 822 MHz on the GPU, and 1002 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 384 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, which comes with a core clock frequency of 928 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1350 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 768 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 650 Ti 110 Watts
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 170 Watts
Difference: 60 Watts (55%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti should be quite a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 128256 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 86400 MB/sec
Difference: 41856 (48%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti should be a small bit (more or less 13%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 Ti 59392 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6784 (13%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 14848 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 11456 (77%)

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 max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units 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 is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
