GTX560 vs GTX580

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
It seems to me that gtx560 got higher gpu mhz... but just less memory... and a lot cheaper too... am i missing something here??

how does the 560 compare to the 580??

SRY for being a noob biggrin.gif

Less memory, lower memory bandwidth, less processor cores.

Higher Mhz =/= Faster Card
The GTX580 has more memory and more Unified Shaders and is therefore more powerful Clock for clock then the GTX560

The GTX580 is and forever will be Much faster then a GTX560 could ever be. The GTX570...not soo much.

"got higher gpu mhz" doesn't really matter.

The 560 has 384 cuda cores, and 32 ROPs.

The 580 has 512 cuda cores, and 48 ROPs.

This matters much more than having a "higher gpu mhz."

In this day an age, SO much of the graphic processing is done by shaders aka. cuda cores. and the 580 has WAY more of those. The cuda cores handle all the lighting and shading and while yes, the 560 has a faster processor, that's not close to all that is important on a gpu. Realistically the amount of ram difference doesn't mean a whole lot unless you're using HIGH amounts of AA and AF or running at MASSIVE resolutions.

The difference is present but whether it is justified money wise, it is up to the user. The enthusiasts are buying the 580 because it is the fastest single GPU and the benches will run with highest scores.

But in real life scenarios, I doubt that you will be able to notice much difference. Maybe in few games that will come but nothing that visible and outrageous.

Most games can still play well even on single 8800/9800GTs.

If you plan on gaming in very high resolutions and some SLI configuration with it in the future, the 580 is worth it. Otherwise, just grab the 560.

Get 2 560's for the price of 1 580 = PROFIT!

lol... i like this quote. my gtx 570 gets wayyy better performance than any stock 580. I get 37000 score on tessmark with my highest overclock!

I downclocked it however, because I am using stock cooling, and now I still get 35,500. still better than a gtx 580. biggrin.gif

570s are awesome
