In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 770 has a 236 MHz higher core clock speed and 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 560. This results in the GeForce GTX 770 providing 88.5 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 GeForce GTX 770 has a 236 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 560 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GTX 770 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 GeForce GTX 770 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 560, and so the GeForce GTX 770 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 560, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 770 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 96.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 560, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is massively better than the GeForce GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 1536 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is 1667 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 560 is 544. The GeForce GTX 770 having 1123 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 770 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 770 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 560. This means that the GeForce GTX 770 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 770 requires 230 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 560 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 770 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GeForce GTX 560. The GeForce GTX 770 requires 80 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 560 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 770 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 560.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 560 is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture was first manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF114-325-A1 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 336 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1001Hz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.

Performance
GeForce GTX 560 competes with Radeon HD 6850 and proves to be around 10% faster.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 560 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
