In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 MSI Twin Frozr III Power OC 1.2GB Edition.

The HD 7850 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 560 Ti. This results in the HD 7850 providing 14.4 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 HD 7850 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 7850 providing 7.2 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 HD 7850 was released less than a year after the GTX 560 Ti, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 560 Ti has 256 MB more video memory than the HD 7850, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the HD 7850 has superior memory performance.

The HD 7850 has 28.8 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 GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 MSI Twin Frozr III Power OC 1.2GB Edition has 448 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 672 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7850 is 849. The HD 7850 having 177 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7850 delivers a noticeably 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.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 MSI Twin Frozr III Power OC 1.2GB Edition requires 210 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7850. The GTX 560 Ti has been recommended a PSU with 50 Watts more than the HD 7850. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 560 Ti may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 7850.
