    560 vs 480

    flbreen Level 1

      I have a 3.5 year old PC with a GTX 480 I use as my backup machine.

      It does a good job supporting Mercury Acceleration running Pr CS6.

      I acquired a GTX 560 ti from someone upgrading.

      Would it be worth replacing the 480 with the 560 to get better performance?

          The little improvement over your 480 would be marginal unless you use an awful lot GPU accelerated effects and/or features repeatedly many times a day.

            The 560 I got is free as I paid for the upgrade to my son's gammer PC.

            But I don't see the 560 listed on the GPU list.

            I assume a 560 not as good as a 580.

            If I can add the 560 to my main PC that has a 680 would that combination add much to the processing speed of that PC?

            I guess the question is what is the best thing to do with a free 560?

              As you can see from the chart, if you add that 560 Ti to your your 680 and you are running Premiere 7 (CC) it could be a help, if you are using "a lot GPU accelerated effects and/or features" often like down scaling HD to DVD or HD to a lower resolution H.264 format. 

               

              But first check your power supply to make sure you have a additional 170 watts available for the GTX 560 Ti or 210 watts if it happens to be a 448 core version
