In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 380X are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition .

The Radeon R9 380X has a 238 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 560 Ti. This results in the Radeon R9 380X providing 77.4 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 Radeon R9 380X has a 238 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R9 380X providing 7.6 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 Radeon R9 380X was released over three years more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the Radeon R9 380X is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 560 Ti when running the latest games.

The Radeon R9 380X has 2816 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 Radeon R9 380X also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon R9 380X has 60.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R9 380X is much better than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon R9 380X has 2048 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has 448. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R9 380X is 1689 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 656. The Radeon R9 380X having 1033 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R9 380X delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon R9 380X transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the Radeon R9 380X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon R9 380X requires 190 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition requires 210 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R9 380X and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti. The GTX 560 Ti requires 20 Watts more than the Radeon R9 380X to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 560 Ti to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon R9 380X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R9 380X 2GB is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
Radeon R9 380X equips the GPU Codenamed Antigua XT which is a GCN 1.2 GPU and has 32 Compute Units activated, offering 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is Clocked at 970MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1425MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 190W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.

Performance
Essentially, Radeon R9 380X is a Power Optimized Radeon R9 280X. As of November 2015, Radeon R9 380X has no Direct Competitor because the awaited GeForce GTX 960 Ti is yet to be released.
Benchmarks Indicate Solid Performance at 1440p but Radeon R9 380X is still best suited for 1080p Gaming, as most modern demanding games will run with FPS ranging between 20 and 40 at 1440p.

System Suggestions
Radeon R9 380X is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We Recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
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.
