In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro W8000 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition.

The FirePro W8000 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the FirePro W8000 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 560 Ti.

The FirePro W8000 has 3072 MB more video memory than the GTX 560 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the FirePro W8000 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro W8000 has 48 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro W8000 is noticeably better than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro W8000 has 1792. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 691 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro W8000 is 1048. The FirePro W8000 having 357 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 560 Ti performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The FirePro W8000 requires 225 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 560 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is one of the many special editions of GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
The new features include a new cooling system and an increase in the core-clock from 822MHz to 900MHz.
Benchmarks indicate the performance is around 5% better than the standard edition.
FirePro W8000 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.
It's based on the Tahiti Pro Core (same used on 7950) and therefore offers 1792 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 256-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked at 900MHz while the memory clock operates at 1375MHZ.
Compared to Radeon HD 7950, its central unit is slightly higher clocked but comes equipped with a 256-bit bus width (against 7950's 384-bit) and so it features less memory bandwidth.
Overall, its gaming performance is considerably lower than Radeon HD 7950 because Radeon HD 7950 benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro W8000 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 10% and 15% worse than Radeon HD 7950.
