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 GT 440 v3.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 306 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 440. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 43.3 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 306 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GT 440. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 14.5 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 less than a year after the GT 440, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GT 440 has 512 MB more video memory than the GTX 560 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 560 Ti has superior memory performance.

The GTX 560 Ti has 84.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 440, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is much better than the GT 440.

The GeForce GT 440 v3 has 144 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 440 is 171 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 691. The GTX 560 Ti having 520 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 GT 440.

The GeForce GT 440 v3 requires 56 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 300 Watts for the GT 440.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 440 v3 is an OEM only middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 56W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above Radeon HD 5570 but Radeon HD 5670 is still faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 440.
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.
