In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro S9150 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 (OEM).

The FirePro S9150 has a 348 MHz higher core clock speed and 132 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 560. This results in the FirePro S9150 providing 134.1 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 FirePro S9150 has a 348 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Render Output Units than the GTX 560. This results in the FirePro S9150 providing 35.5 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 FirePro S9150 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560, and so the FirePro S9150 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 560.

The FirePro S9150 has 15104 MB more video memory than the GTX 560, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the FirePro S9150 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro S9150 has 191.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro S9150 is massively better than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 (OEM) has 384 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro S9150 has 2816. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 424 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro S9150 is 2534. The FirePro S9150 having 2110 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro S9150 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560.

The FirePro S9150 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560. This means that the FirePro S9150 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 (OEM) requires 150 Watts to run and the FirePro S9150 requires 235 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560. The FirePro S9150 requires 85 Watts more than the GTX 560 to run. The difference is significant enough that the FirePro S9150 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 560.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 560 (OEM) is, an OEM Only, Performance Graphics Card based on the Fermi 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.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GF110 which has 11 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 44 TMUs and 40 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 552MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1.2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 320-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 802Hz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Compared to the regular GeForce GTX 560, GeForce GTX 560 (OEM) Features 4 more SM and a 64-bit larger memory interface.
However, because it is heavily underclocked, it ends up performing worse.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 560 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
FirePro S9150 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.

It's based on the Hawaii XT Core (same used on Radeon R9 290X) and therefore offers 2816 Shader Processing Units, 176 TMUs and 64 ROPs on a 512-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 900MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.

Compared to Radeon R9 290X, its central unit is slightly lower and overall its gaming performance is lower than Radeon R9 290X because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro S9150 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 10% and 15% worse than Radeon R9 290X.
