In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 7950 GX2.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 400 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 7950 GX2. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 33.6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 400 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 7950 GX2 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 12.8 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 three years more recently than the GeForce 7950 GX2, and so the GTX 560 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 7950 GX2 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce 7950 GX2 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 560 Ti has 51.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 7950 GX2, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is much better than the GeForce 7950 GX2.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 7950 GX2 has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 691 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 7950 GX2 is 24. The GTX 560 Ti having 667 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 7950 GX2.

The GTX 560 Ti transistor size technology is 50 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 7950 GX2. This means that the GTX 560 Ti is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 7950 GX2.

The GeForce 7950 GX2 requires 110 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 560 Ti. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce 7950 GX2, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GTX 560 Ti.
