In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8740 (OEM).

The GTX 560 Ti has a 22 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 8740. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 27 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 22 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the HD 8740. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 13.5 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 8740 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the HD 8740 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 HD 8740 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 560 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GTX 560 Ti has 56.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8740, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is much better than the HD 8740.

The Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) has 512 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8740 is 348 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 631. The GTX 560 Ti having 283 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 8740.

The HD 8740 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the HD 8740 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) requires 55 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti requires 170 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 8740 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti. The GTX 560 Ti requires 115 Watts more than the HD 8740 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 560 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 8740.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is an OEM Only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Cape Verde PRO which has 8 Compute Units activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 800MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1125MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 55W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon HD 7750 and performs exactly like it.

System Suggestions
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 560 Ti is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture was first manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF114-400-A1 which has 8 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 822MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002Hz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 170W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.

Performance
GeForce GTX 560 Ti competes with Radeon HD 6870 and proves to be around 5% faster.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 560 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
