GeForce GTX 285 1GB vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 285 1GB makes use of a 55 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 648 MHz. The GDDR3 memory runs at a frequency of 1242 MHz on this specific model. It features 240 SPUs as well as 80 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which features GPU core speed of 822 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1002 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti will be just a bit (about 1%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 285 1GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 285 1GB 51840 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 768 (1%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti should be much (more or less 27%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 285 1GB, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 285 1GB 20736 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5568 (27%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, 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 is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.

I build my own computers for me and my family. I also build for other peaple as well for a little xtra cash. When i do my builds i reserch every main component i install.i decided to check into the 200 series video cards to se how far the 400 and 500 series have advanced.Much to my surprise i did not find much diference. It seems to me the 285 overall is better then the 560 and the 285 matches up very well against the 560 firmi.I am building 2 new machines at the moment, 1 for me 1 for my son. I plan to get a gtx 285 for mine and a 560 firmi for him. this will tell me how closly matched they are.

Troy remember though that the 560 supports directx 11 and opengl v4 - it also performs similar if not slightly better than a 6950. It would be more efficient overall as its a newer core design. Also I hope that your son's and your computer have identical specs for everything aside from graphics... otherwise a fair comparison cannot be pulled...
