GeForce GTX 560 vs Geforce GTX 760

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 has a core clock speed of 810 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1001 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 336 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Geforce GTX 760, which features clock speeds of 980 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1152 SPUs along with 96 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 760 will be quite a bit (approximately 107%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 560. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 94080 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 45360 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 48720 (107%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 760 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 31360 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 25920 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5440 (21%)

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 (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
