In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCUII 1GB.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 590, but the GTX 590 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 560 Ti. As a result, the GTX 590 exhibits a 27.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 560 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 560 Ti has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 590, but the GTX 590 has 64 more Render Output Units than the GTX 560 Ti. As a result, the GTX 590 exhibits a 33.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 560 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 590 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 GTX 590 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 560 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 590 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 590 has 203.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 590 is massively better than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCUII 1GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 590 is 1290 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 637. The GTX 590 having 653 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 590 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition requires 365 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCUII 1GB. We would recommend a PSU with at least 700 Watts for the GTX 590.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper is a special edition of the dual-graphics solution GeForce GTX 590.
This edition comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that went from 608MHz to 630MHz and in the operating memory clock, which is now of 864MHz. Furthermore, it features a new cooling system which keeps the card cool under load.
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the reference card and so it proves to be faster than GeForce GTX 680.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCUII 1GB is a special edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 560 Ti. See the standard version for more information about it.
The new features include the new Cooper technology and the core-clock was increased to 830MHz. For superior performance, gamers will want to pick up the TOP version (over-clocked). A new cooling system is also available.
Benchmarks indicate a 1.5% performance gain when compared to the standard GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
All games, including demanding one's, will run at the highest settings.
