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 Intel Iris Graphics 5100 Desktop.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 500 MHz higher core clock speed and 56 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 5100. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 54.4 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 500 MHz higher core clock speed and 28 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 5100. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 27.2 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 Graphics 5100 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the Graphics 5100 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 GTX 560 Ti has 1024 MB video memory, but the Graphics 5100 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Iris Graphics 5100 Desktop has 160 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 5100 is 314 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 691. The GTX 560 Ti having 377 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 Graphics 5100.

The Graphics 5100 transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the Graphics 5100 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Iris Graphics 5100 Desktop requires 28 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIris Graphics 5100 Desktop are found in some of the 2013 Haswell desktop processors.
They feature 40 Execution Units (160 Shader Processing Units), 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. They share system memory and so the memory channel and speed will depend on the users configuration. The best possible combination is a dual-channel bus-width with an operating memory clock of 800MHz.
Its central unit and turbo frequency also depend on the CPU its embedded but it ranges from 400MHz to 1350MHz.
Its performance is average and only somewhat better than what dedicated GeForce GT 630 & Radeon 6570 offer.
GeForce 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.
