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

The GTX 560 Ti has a 40 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 2.6 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 40 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 1.3 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 GeForce GTX 560 Ti Golden Sample Edition and the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core 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 GeForce GTX 560 Ti Golden Sample Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 691 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7850 is 749. The HD 7850 having 58 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.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7850, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GTX 560 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 560 Ti Golden Sample Edition is one of the many special editions of GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
The new features include increased memory and core clocks, from 1002MHz to 1050MHz and from 822MHz to 900MHz, respectively and a dual-fan cooling system.
Benchmarks indicate a 7% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
Radeon 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.
