VS

GeForce GTX 560 vs Geforce GTX 760

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 comes with a GPU core speed of 810 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1001 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 336 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Geforce GTX 760, which comes with a core clock frequency of 980 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1502 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 1152 SPUs, 96 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 560 150 Watts
Geforce GTX 760 170 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (13%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Geforce GTX 760 will be 50% quicker than the GeForce GTX 560 in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 192256 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 560 128128 MB/sec
Difference: 64128 (50%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 760 should be much (approximately 107%) better 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 running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 760 is superior to the GeForce GTX 560, and very much so. (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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If 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 high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
