GTX 460 vs GTX 560 ti vs GTX 570

Hi. I'd like to know if the gtx 480 is better than the gtx 560 ti or even the gtx 570 in terms of performance. The heat and PSU is not an issue. I've searched about it on this forum and all the answers say that get the 570 or 560 ti because the 480 gets real hot. How much difference in performance is there between these three cards? Resolution's 1280X720, btw.

at stock the 480 is just slightly better than the 570, but at the resolution of 1280x720, all 3 cards should kill it.

Is there really a difference between 720p and 1080p when it comes to gaming? Is it that obvious? My monitor is still quite good, you know. :D  Native res is 1600X900.

So the 480 is the best one?

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the GeForce GTX 480 should theoretically be much superior to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti overall.

GeForce GTX 480 177408 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 128256 MB/sec
Difference: 49152 (38%)
Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti is quite a bit (approximately 25%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GTX 480.

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 480 42000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10608 (25%)
Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 480 is superior to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, and very much so.

GeForce GTX 480 33600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7296 (28%)

The 480 is a better card but its a bit out dated. I just bought a gtx 560 ti yesterday and i'm slightly regretting it because the figures show the 480 as a superior card.

Oh wow. The 480 even manages to beat the 570. O_O Only the 580 seems to be better overall. Can you run Batman AC on highest settings with DirectX11 enabled? Now I'm stuck between 480 and 570. Just looking for the best performance. -.- Do you think I should get the 480 or the 560/570? I know it's my choice in the end, but just want to know your opinion.

anti aliasing. what it is is when you are looking at an object at an angle(like a wall) what AA does is smooth out the image. heres an example in portal of the difference

Oh, that explains it. Thanks.

What about this:

The 480 takes alot of power and alot of cooling power. What power supply are you going to get?

And at a res of 1600x900, all of those cards are going to do well.

480 is around 25% slower at Anisotropic filtering, so a GTX 560 ti would have slightly clearer textures and blur objects further away to give the illusion of distance. But, this isn't as important as AA - AA is the most noticeable and jaggedy's just look unnatural. In terms of AA, the 480 is 28% better. It's really down to personal preference - whether you prefer AA or AF. Whichever you think improves the game quality the best is going to be the better card.

Of course these figures are just theoretical, but they are pretty accurate.
The gtx 560 ti and the Gtx 480 are around the same price, but I would say get a good cooler for the GTX 480 as they are noisy and hot - with a new cooler you will have the capacity to OC a little if you so desire.

With a good cooler, I don't see any reason against the 480 being able to compete or being slightly better than a 570. (AF is only 5% more on the 570 which is practically nothing unless you have a massive resolution monitor)

Conclusion: Get a gtx 480 with a good cooler and you will have a beast of a card.

I'm using 850w Cooler Master. I use 1280X720. Not sure if I should switch to 1600X900 though.

Also, is there any difference between Zotac or EVGA or anything other than those?

EVGA has a 700mhz clock speed and Zotac also has a 700mhz clock speed.
There probably isn't an awful lot of difference (only price, Zotac is quite expensive).

But 560 ti twinfrozr ii OC edition may be better than GTX 480 and 560 ti with about nearly same prize. :)

560 ti twin frozr is very good and a lot quieter than the 480. But keeping the stock fan on the 480 really limits it, so with a good cooler (arctic or spitfire) it will end up being very similar in performance to a 570. Overclock that, you would have the ability to with a good cooler, and you've really got something. Plus if your motherboard has a nividia chipset and can support SLI, you could add another one and run it in SLI when then price hits rock bottom. The result of two 480's in SLI would compete with a 680 (which is currently at the top of the gpu benchmarks).

http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=703... -here is a comparison of the 480 in Sli with the gtx 680. 480 in sli is the obvious choice if you don't care about the power consumption.

here are the league tables for various graphics cards (480 is rank 9, 560 ti is rank 20) http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html
