HARDWARE: Geforce GTX 460 vs GTX 560 vs Radeon HD 6870

Sunday, 10 July 2011

Here we have two graphics cards with Ati and Nvidia chipsets. Both have price range around 200 dollars border. Both are released this year earlier at 2011 and are well competitive in new games. The next chart represents specifications of GTX 560 and Radeon HD 6870. There's also GTX 560 Ti (enhanced regular 560) and GTX 460 included for comparison. All of the graphic cards here have 1GB (1024Mt) of memory. On the chart we can see that GTX 560 is actually pretty much overclocked GTX 460 with better clock rates:

This makes GTX 460 actually quite considerable lower budget option. If you know what you're doing you can overclock it with one of the various overclocking utilities nowadays available directly from internet for free. Just type "overlock utility nvidia" or something similar to Google and download one.

We have one more chart below to add into comparison. It's GTX 460 1GB versus Radeon HD 6870 1GB benchmarked in Battlefield Bad Company 2, DiRT 2, Just Cause 2 and combined score. For those who don't know FPS stands for frames-per-second and describes the framerate in game, how smoothly it runs:

We can see here that cheaper and older GTX 460 doesn't actually lose with so big marginal. Maybe with overclocking it's graphics clock and memory clock slightly it would actually get quite close. Now looking the upmost chart with GTX 560 included it's quite sure that the card will give Radeon HD 6870 run for the money.
