Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs GeForce GTX 650 Ti
IntroThe GeForce GTX 560 Ti comes with a GPU core speed of 822 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1002 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 384 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.
Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, which comes with clock speeds of 928 MHz on the GPU, and 1350 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 768 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti should theoretically be much superior to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 650 Ti should be a small bit (more or less 13%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. (explain)
Pixel RateIf using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is superior to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, by far. (explain)
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.
Price ComparisonPlease note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords, and might not be the exact same card listed on this page. We have no control over the accuracy of their search results.
Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core 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 applied per second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
