GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs Geforce GTX 760

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti has a clock speed of 822 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1002 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Geforce GTX 760, which comes with GPU clock speed of 980 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1502 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1152 Stream Processors, 96 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

(No game benchmarks for this combination yet.)

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Geforce GTX 760 should be 50% faster than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti overall, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 192256 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 128256 MB/sec
Difference: 64000 (50%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 760 is much (about 79%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 94080 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 41472 (79%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 760 is the winner, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 31360 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5056 (19%)

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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster 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 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 card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
