In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 Gigabyte SO Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition.

The GTX 560 has a 55 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 570, but the GTX 570 has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 560. As a result, the GTX 570 exhibits a 0.3 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 55 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 570, but the GTX 570 has 8 more Render Output Units than the GTX 560. As a result, the GTX 570 exhibits a 5 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 560. 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 570, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 570 has 256 MB more video memory than the GTX 560, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 570 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 570 has 20.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 570 is slightly better than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 570 Gigabyte SO Edition has 480. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 605 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 570 is 811. The GTX 570 having 206 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 570 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition requires 176 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 570 Gigabyte SO Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560 and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GTX 570. The GTX 570 has been recommended a PSU with 200 Watts more than the GTX 560. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 570 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 560.
