In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Zotac Thunderbolt 1GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition.

The GTX 750 has a 304 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560, but the GTX 560 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the GTX 560 exhibits a 12.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 750. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 750 has a 304 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560, but the GTX 560 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the GTX 560 exhibits a 9.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 750. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 750 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560, and so the GTX 750 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 GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 750 Zotac Thunderbolt 1GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 560 has 48 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 is noticeably better than the GTX 750.

The GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 750 Zotac Thunderbolt 1GB Edition has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 622 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 912. The GTX 750 having 290 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 560 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 750 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560. This means that the GTX 750 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GTX 750 should consume less power than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 750 Zotac Thunderbolt 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 750. The GTX 560 requires 95 Watts more than the GTX 750 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 560 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 560, created by Asus.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 925MHz, instead of 810MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock is now of 1050MHz, instead of 1002MHz.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
DirectCU II: Copper heat pipes in direct contact with the GPU to speed up heat dissipation for over 20% cooler performance, DirectCU II takes cooling further with twin 80mm fans for doubled airflow.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 9% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 560.
Note: This GFX was only released in China, as of 18.02.2014.
GeForce GTX 750 Zotac Thunderbolt 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 750.
This edition comes with a custom cooling cooling solution which by itself will allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 750 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Furthermore, it comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was raised from 1020MHz to 1229MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1320MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was increased to 1350MHz, increasing the much needed memory bandwidth.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 10% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus this card is much faster than Radeon R7 260X.
