Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs Geforce GTX 760
IntroThe GeForce GTX 560 Ti has a GPU core speed of 822 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 1002 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.
Compare those specifications 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 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.
Power Usage and Theoretical BenchmarksBoth cards have the same power consumption.
As far as performance goes, the Geforce GTX 760 should theoretically be quite a bit better than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe Geforce GTX 760 should be much (about 79%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Geforce GTX 760 should be just a bit (approximately 19%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in one 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 - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
