GeForce GTX 275 vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 275 comes with a clock speed of 633 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 1134 MHz. It also uses a 448-bit memory bus, and uses a 55 nm design. It is made up of 240 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 28 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which features core clock speeds of 822 MHz on the GPU, and 1002 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 384 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce GTX 275 127008 MB/sec
Difference: 1248 (1%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti should be a small bit (approximately 4%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 275. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 275 50640 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1968 (4%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti should be a lot (about 48%) better at AA than the GeForce GTX 275, and should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 275 17724 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8580 (48%)

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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock 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 rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
