In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 20 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD 7850. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 1.3 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 20 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7850 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 0.7 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD 7850 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the HD 7850 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 7850 has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7850 is slightly better than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 7850 is 749 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 676. The HD 7850 having 73 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7850 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560 Ti.

The HD 7850 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the HD 7850 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD 7850 should consume less power than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC Edition requires 170 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD 7850. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7850 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti. The two GPUs have been recommended a PSU with the same amount of wattage. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition is a special edition of the powerful Radeon HD 7850. See the standard version for more information about it.
This edition features a special cooling system that allows twice as much heat dissipation when compared to the reference AMD cooling system but its performance is still the same, as there's no over-clocking out of the box.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II/OC Edition is a special edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 560 Ti. See the standard version for more information about it.
The new features include increased memory and core clocks, from 1002MHz to 1050MHz and from 822MHz to 880MHz, respectively and a new cooling system.
Compared to the standard version, the performance boost is about 6,5%.
All games, including demanding one's, will run at the highest settings.
