In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 MSI Twin Frozr III Power OC 1.2GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition .

The GTX 560 Ti has a 18 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 560 Ti. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 1.2 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 Ti has a 18 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 0.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 MSI Twin Frozr III Power OC 1.2GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 MSI Twin Frozr III Power OC 1.2GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 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 Ti has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is marginally better than the GTX 560 Ti.

Both the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 MSI Twin Frozr III Power OC 1.2GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition have 448 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GTX 560 Ti has 1.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate, 0.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, and 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, so should have a marginally faster performance than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 MSI Twin Frozr III Power OC 1.2GB Edition requires 210 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition requires 210 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 3% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 270-A1 variant of the 40nm GF110 GPU of the Fermi architecture.
The 270-A1 variant of the GF110 Core comes with 14 SMx activated and thus offers 448 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 320-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has its central unit clocked at 732MHz and its memory clock operates at 950MHz - same as GeForce GTX 570.
Compared to the regular GeForce GTX 560 Ti, the rated board TDP is around 40W higher but its performance surpasses it largely, while some factory overclocked versions surpass GeForce GTX 570.
