Performance recapAlthough individual game results are obviously worth looking at when you want to gauge performance in a specific game, we have also calculated a performance index based on all tests with the same weight for each game.
We attributed an index of 100 to the GeForce GTX 460 at 1920x1080:
Hold the mouse over the graph to view a classification by performance at 1920x1080 AA4x.
As we suspected the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 struggles to outdo the Radeon HD 6870 and, as is becoming common on models that are in direct competition, gives similar performance. The cards are on a par without antialiasing but the Radeon is slightly in front with this filter on.
What is more surprising is to see the Asus GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP so close to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. The 15% higher GPU clock on the Asus GTX 560 Direct CU II TOP therefore compensates perfectly for the 14% deficit in processing units.
