GeForce GTX 280 vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 280 uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 602 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1107 MHz on this specific card. It features 240 SPUs as well as 80 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 822 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1002 MHz on this specific model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 170 Watts
GeForce GTX 280 236 Watts
Difference: 66 Watts (39%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 280 should be 10% quicker than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti overall, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 280 141696 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 128256 MB/sec
Difference: 13440 (10%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti is a bit (approximately 9%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 280. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 280 48160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4448 (9%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 280 19264 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7040 (37%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the 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 the video card 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 amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called 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, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.

usted cual recomienda, para trabajar con adobe premier cs5, tengo esa duda, quiero comprar unatarjeta que me de resultavos positivos para mi trabajo, si la 280 tiene mayor cantidad de bus pero la 560ti tiene mayor cantidad de ddr5.
gracias por su aporte

Te recomiendo la GTX 560 Ti. porque? porque tiene tecnología mas nueva y es mas rápida en los programas que nombras.
