Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 560 vs Geforce GTX 760
IntroThe GeForce GTX 560 comes with a GPU core speed of 810 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1001 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 336 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.
Compare all that to the Geforce GTX 760, which has clock speeds of 980 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1152 SPUs along with 96 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
As far as performance goes, the Geforce GTX 760 should in theory be a lot better than the GeForce GTX 560 in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe Geforce GTX 760 should be quite a bit (more or less 107%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 560. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Geforce GTX 760 is a lot (more or less 21%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 560, and should be able to handle higher resolutions more effectively. (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 maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka 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 potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
