In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 270X are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition.

The Radeon R9 270X has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 560 Ti. This results in the Radeon R9 270X providing 22.4 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 Radeon R9 270X has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R9 270X providing 3.2 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 Radeon R9 270X was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the Radeon R9 270X 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 Radeon R9 270X 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 Radeon R9 270X also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon R9 270X has 51.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R9 270X is much better than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon R9 270X has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R9 270X is 1142 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 691. The Radeon R9 270X having 451 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R9 270X delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon R9 270X transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the Radeon R9 270X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Radeon R9 270X requires 180 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R9 270X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R9 270X is a high-end Graphics Card based on the Curacao XT core of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.
The Curacao XT Core has its roots on the Pitcairn XT Core used on its predecessor - Radeon HD 7870. It offers 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface.
However and when compared to its predecessor, Radeon R9 270X offers a Boost Clock of 1050MHz, despite its central unit still running at 1000MHz. Furthermore, its operating memory clock is significantly higher and of 1400MHz, leading to extra memory bandwidth.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is almost on level with powerful Radeon HD 7950, though its Boost Edition and famous GeForce GTX 660 Ti still perform considerably better.
Still, Radeon R9 270X has a launching price of just $199 which makes it a very competitive card.
Expect to run most modern demanding games, such as Crysis 3 and Metro Last Light at highest settings while using a 1080p resolution.
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.
