In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7850 MSI OC 2GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition.

The HD 7850 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 HD 7850 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 HD 7850 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the HD 7850 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 HD 7850 has 1024 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 HD 7850 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 7850 has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7850 is slightly better than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon HD 7850 MSI OC 2GB Edition has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 7850 is 783 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 691. The HD 7850 having 92 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7850 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560 Ti.

The HD 7850 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the HD 7850 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD 7850 should consume less power than the GTX 560 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 7850 MSI OC 2GB Edition is a special edition of the powerful Radeon HD 7850. See the standard version for more information about it.
The differences include an increase in the clock-clock that went from 860MHz to 900MHz and a new quiet and efficient cooling system.
The performance boost is the same as the Radeon HD 7850 MSI OC 1GB Edition, as this card does not benefit from a 2GB frame buffer.
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.
