PPD difference: GTX560 - GTX570 - GTX580

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to decide on which one. Anyone know what the difference in PPD is between them?

If I can get this figured out soon, it should be folding by the beginning of the CC.

I have a 560Ti folding in my office right now. It is clocked at ~14K PPD. I haven't fully benched my 580 so I don't want to comment on it.

Do you have a budget?

Rough estimates...
560 - 14k
570 - 17k
580 - 20k

A GTX 560 might reach 17k ppd max when oc. At stock clocks a GTX 580 will do around 16k ppd and up to 20k ppd when oc to 1900 shaders(950 core). The GTX 570 is somewhere in between. Just remember that for the price of 1 GTX 580 you can get 2 GTX 560's and about 10k more PPD than the GTX 580.

I will agree. I got mine for $200.

Hmmm... I don't really have a budget... but ~17k sounds pretty good. Looking at an MSI 560 hawk... the 570 was a TF3, and the 580 was a TF3 Lightning...

I don't really want to go with 2 cards, but only ~3k less out of a 560 vs a 580... It would almost be silly to go with a 580.

I don't game.

Two cards.. why not? as long as you can keep them both cool, but ya 580 is very pricey.

If you do not plan on gaming and do not want 2 cards then maybe the 570 is the sweet middle spot.

Getting 2x 560s wouldn't be a bad thing, the PPD is great and it wouldn't get that hot unless you have really bad airflow.

Cooling is one thing.

I don't want to drag the production down on by bigadv rigs, either. This is to go in my i5 smp folder. I realize that the combined ppd output might be higher, but I like to see the low tpf's

I gotta MSI 560 Ti Twin Frozr II running at 955/1910/2100mhz (62C full load) pushes out a good 14k PPD, stays with a 6801 or 6806 WU for 1348 credits each, TPF-1min 21sec.

That MSI 560 Ti Hawk looks real good, only 15 bucks more than the Twin Frozr and better clocks.
