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 8800 GS.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 8800 GS. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 31.2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. 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 has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed and 20 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 8800 GS. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 22.2 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 8800 GS, 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 8800 GS when running the latest games.

The GTX 560 Ti has 640 MB more video memory than the GeForce 8800 GS, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 560 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 560 Ti has 89.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 8800 GS, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is much better than the GeForce 8800 GS.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8800 GS has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 691 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8800 GS is 132. The GTX 560 Ti having 559 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 8800 GS.

The GTX 560 Ti transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 8800 GS. This means that the GTX 560 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 8800 GS.

The GeForce 8800 GS requires 105 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 560 Ti. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GeForce 8800 GS, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage 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.
GeForce 8800 GS is a high-end GFX based on the 65nm variant of the first-shader unified architecture.
It's based on the G92 Core and offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 12 ROPs, on a 192-bit memory interface of GDDR3. The central unit runs at 550MHz and the memory clock operates 800MHz. It will consume no more than 105 Watt.
GeForce 8800 GS was added later to the GeForce 8000 Series and was manufactured with an upgraded G8X Core known as G92 (later used on the GeForce 9000 Series). It's manufactured with a smaller technology (65nm VS 90nm) and therefore heats less and consumes less power. Compared to GeForce 8800 GT, it performs significantly worse - especially at higher resolutions.
Today's modern demanding games can be played at medium (most) or high settings (some) smoothly. However, DirectX 11 based games aren't supported and its performance will decrease substantially, as the resolution increases.
