GeForce GTX 295 vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 295 features a clock frequency of 576 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 999 MHz. It also makes use of a 448-bit bus, and makes use of a 55 nm design. It features 240 SPUs, 80 Texture Address Units, and 28 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which features clock speeds of 822 MHz on the GPU, and 1002 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 384 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 170 Watts
GeForce GTX 295 289 Watts
Difference: 119 Watts (70%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX 295 should in theory be quite a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti overall. (explain)

GeForce GTX 295 223776 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 128256 MB/sec
Difference: 95520 (74%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 295 should be a lot (more or less 75%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. (explain)

GeForce GTX 295 92160 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 39552 (75%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 295 is superior to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 295 32256 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5952 (23%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better 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 figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka 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 get to the maximum fill rate.
