In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 240 MSI OC 2GB Edition.

The R7 240 has a 28 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 44 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 240. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 31.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R7 240. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R7 240 has a 28 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 24 more Render Output Units than the R7 240. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 17.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R7 240. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 240 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the R7 240 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 R7 240 has 768 MB more video memory than the GTX 560 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 560 Ti has superior memory performance.

The GTX 560 Ti has 92.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 240, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is massively better than the R7 240.

The Radeon R7 240 MSI OC 2GB Edition has 320 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has 448. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 240 is 220 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 656. The GTX 560 Ti having 436 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 R7 240.

The R7 240 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the R7 240 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon R7 240 MSI OC 2GB Edition requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition requires 210 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 240 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti. The GTX 560 Ti requires 175 Watts more than the R7 240 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 R7 240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 240 MSI 2GB OC Edition is a special edition of the middle-class Radeon R7 240.
This edition comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 730MHz to 760MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 810MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 2% performance boost over the standard edition.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 270-A1 variant of the 40nm GF110 GPU of the Fermi architecture.
The 270-A1 variant of the GF110 Core comes with 14 SMx activated and thus offers 448 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 320-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has its central unit clocked at 732MHz and its memory clock operates at 950MHz - same as GeForce GTX 570.
Compared to the regular GeForce GTX 560 Ti, the rated board TDP is around 40W higher but its performance surpasses it largely, while some factory overclocked versions surpass GeForce GTX 570.
