Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs Geforce GTX 760
IntroThe GeForce GTX 560 Ti uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 822 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1002 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.
Compare those specs to the Geforce GTX 760, which features a GPU core clock speed of 980 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1502 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1152 Stream Processors, 96 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.
Power Usage and Theoretical BenchmarksBoth cards have the same power consumption.
In theory, the Geforce GTX 760 should perform much faster than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe Geforce GTX 760 will be quite a bit (more or less 79%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Geforce GTX 760 is a small bit (more or less 19%) better at AA than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions better. (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.
Please note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords - sometimes it might show cards with very similar names that are not exactly the same as the one chosen in the comparison. We do try to filter out the wrong results as best we can, though.
Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics 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 most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output 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 maximum fill rate.
