In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II 2GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition.

The GTX 560 has a 103 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 560. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 0.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 560. 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 has a 103 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 560 providing 3.3 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 GTX 560 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 560 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 560, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 560 has superior memory performance.

The GTX 560 has 6.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 is marginally better than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 622 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 631. The GTX 560 Ti having 9 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 560 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GTX 560 Asus DirectCU II TOP 1GB Edition requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II 2GB. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560.

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.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II 2GB Edition is a special edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 560 Ti. See the standard version for more information about it.
The new features include twice as much video memory and a new cooling system.
This GPU does not seem to benefit overall from extra memory and so its performance is on level with the standard GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
