In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition.

The GTX 460 has a 33 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 460. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 4.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 460. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 460 has a 33 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 460 providing 1.1 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 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GTX 460, and so the GTX 560 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 460.

The GTX 560 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 460, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 460 has superior memory performance.

The GTX 460 has 0.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 460 is marginally better than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 631 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 575. The GTX 560 Ti having 56 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 460.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition requires 170 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 460 Point of View TGT Beast 1GB Edition requires 160 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 460. The GTX 560 Ti requires 10 Watts more than the GTX 460 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 GTX 460.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 560 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 560 Ti, created by EVGA.

Overclock: Central Unit
None.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 2GB.
While 2GB are needed in a few Modern Games for increased texture detail, the GPU is not powerful enough to work under other circumstances in which 2GB are needed, such as gaming at 1080p and thus a larger frame buffer is mostly a gimmick.
