In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition.

The GTX 560 has a 4 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti, but the GTX 650 Ti has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 560. As a result, the GTX 650 Ti exhibits a 7.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 560. 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 has a 4 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650 Ti. This results in the GTX 560 providing 15 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 650 Ti was released less than a year after the GTX 560, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 560 has 57.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 is much better than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 626 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 713. The GTX 650 Ti having 87 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 560 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 650 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 Sparkle Calibe DF 1GB Edition requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560.

Cooling Solution
The new upgraded versions of X560 Ti DF and X560 DF are equipped with brand new Cool Pro thermal modules. Most importantly, the exclusive 9cm Ball Bearing Fans operate stably even at high speed and avoid problems such as increase in noise and fan failures caused by bearing’s wear and tear, effectively taking away the heat generated by graphics card. Furthermore, this cooler incorporates two high-performance 8mm copper heat pipes which enable optimum heat transfer, obtaining obvious performance upgrade in cooling.
