In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition.

The GTX 560 has a 78 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 2.2 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 78 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 2.5 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 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 3 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 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 605 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 631. The GTX 560 Ti having 26 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 Ti delivers a marginally 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 and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition requires 170 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti. The GTX 560 requires 6 Watts more than the GTX 560 Ti to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 560 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 560 Ti.

Overview
GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 560 Ti created by Gainward. It doesn't have any new features. Read below to know more.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock Remains the Same and the Frame Buffer Remain was doubled to 2GB - this is a gimmick and does not benefit the GPU in any way.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System has been replaced by Gainward's Phantom Cooling Solution.

Performance
Without a New Cooling Solution or overclocking out of the box, GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gainward Phantom 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
