In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II Strix Gaming 4GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition .

The R9 380X has a 238 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 560 Ti. This results in the R9 380X providing 77.4 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 R9 380X has a 238 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R9 380X providing 7.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R9 380X was released over three years more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the R9 380X is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 560 Ti when running the latest games.

The R9 380X has 2816 MB more video memory than the GTX 560 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R9 380X also has superior memory performance overall.

The R9 380X has 60.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the R9 380X is much better than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II Strix Gaming 4GB Edition has 2048 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has 448. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 380X is 1689 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 656. The R9 380X having 1033 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R9 380X delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560 Ti.

The R9 380X transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the R9 380X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II Strix Gaming 4GB Edition requires 190 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition requires 210 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 380X and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti. The GTX 560 Ti requires 20 Watts more than the R9 380X to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 560 Ti to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the R9 380X.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate no Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R9 380X.
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.
