In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 1GB Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition.

The GTX 560 has a 77 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 460. This results in the GTX 560 providing 4.3 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 GTX 560 has a 77 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 460 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 560 providing 2.4 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 460, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 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 15 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 460, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 is slightly better than the GTX 460.

Both the GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 1GB Edition have 336 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GTX 560 is 626 and by the GTX 460 is 626. Knowing that the shader performance of the GTX 560 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition requires 160 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 1GB Edition requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560. The GTX 460 requires 10 Watts more than the GTX 560 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 460 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 560.

Cooling Solution
The new upgraded versions of X560 Ti DF and X560 DF are equipped with brand new Cool Pro thermal modules. Most importantly, the exclusive 9cm Ball Bearing Fans operate stably even at high speed and avoid problems such as increase in noise and fan failures caused by bearing’s wear and tear, effectively taking away the heat generated by graphics card. Furthermore, this cooler incorporates two high-performance 8mm copper heat pipes which enable optimum heat transfer, obtaining obvious performance upgrade in cooling.
