In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition.

The GTX 550 Ti has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 550 Ti. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 26.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 550 Ti. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 550 Ti has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 8 more Render Output Units than the GTX 550 Ti. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 5.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 550 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 550 Ti was released less than a year after the GTX 560 Ti, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 560 Ti has 29.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 550 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is slightly better than the GTX 550 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 691 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 550 Ti is 374. The GTX 560 Ti having 317 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 Ti delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 550 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is one of the many special editions of GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
The new features include a new cooling system and an increase in the core-clock from 822MHz to 900MHz.
Benchmarks indicate the performance is around 5% better than the standard edition.
GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition is a special edition of the GeForce GTX 550 Ti. See the page of the standard version for more information.
The features include better cooling and an increase on the core-clock from 900MHz to 975MHz.
Benchmarks indicate the performance is 4.5% better when compared to the reference card.
Some modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution but the largest part will have to be played with a 720p resolution to be played optimally.
This Graphics Card needs to be paired with a decent Quad Core CPU.
