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

The GTX 560 Ti and the GTX 560 Ti have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 560 Ti and the GTX 560 Ti have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. 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 a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the GTX 560 Ti 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 GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Sonic 1GB Edition 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 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is marginally better than the GTX 560 Ti.

Both the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Sonic 1GB Edition have 384 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the GTX 560 Ti takes the edge.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti Sonic 1GB Edition requires 180 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 560 Ti. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GTX 560 Ti.
