Hi all,

taking a look here I noticed that it is stated how 480 is faster than 560Ti.
How can this be?

In the real world they both perform about the same. The 480 is maybe a tad faster. However, the 560Ti runs much much cooler and uses a lot less power.

Yes. Thats right... GTX 480 is at least 20% faster than GTX 560 Ti.
It is comparable to the GTX 570 though.
GTX 480 was Nvidias flagship GPU when 400 series cards came out.
The 560 Ti on the other hand is a mid-high-end card, and only one generation newer.

Also don't believe this site. GTX 580 & 570 beat the 590 & HD6990. LOL.

Yeah...No.

The 480 stomps the 560. Maybe a heavily overclocked 560Ti will comes close to a stock 480, but of course the 480 can be OC'd as well. It might not be the most efficient card out there, but the GTX 480 has 96 more CUDA cores than the GTX 560 Ti.

GTX570 = GTX480 only the GTX480 has 1.5GB or VRAM and the 570 have 1.3GB

the gtx480 cooler thought is pretty bad and the gtx580 for example that use more power is cooler due to the vapor chamber cooler (the GTX580 and the GTX570 coolers are about the same..) and a 560's coolers are also on most of the cards are non reference so most time 560's run much much cooler.

by the way you mean GTX560 or GTX560TI ?
anyway a GTX480 is faster then both of them.

480 is the flagship card of last generation, and they did not change much this latest gen.

The 480 has 50% more ROPs and memory bandwith, plus almost 50% more shaders, compared to the 560Ti.

You need more than a 20% clock advantage to overcome a 40-50% disadvantage in number of functional units.

The GTX 480 is indeed a more capable card than the GTX 560 ti. However, it draws more power and is a bit warmer. You can snag a 480 for a little bit higher than a 560 ti. If you waned a current gen card that is closer to the 480, I would go with a 570 (Unless you have the cash for a 580 :> )

oh this helped, thanks. Then I have a question: if 480 is faster and costs less, what's the point of buying a 560Ti?eek.gif

480 is the better card I have 2 and thinking of getting another when they get even cheaper
