In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 580.

The GTX Titan has a 65 MHz higher core clock speed and 160 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 580. This results in the GTX Titan providing 138.1 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 GTX Titan has a 65 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 580 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX Titan providing 3.1 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 GTX Titan was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 580, and so the GTX Titan is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTX 580.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX Titan has 4608 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 580, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX Titan also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX Titan has 96 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 580, which means that the memory performance of the GTX Titan is massively better than the GeForce GTX 580.

The GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition has 2688 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 580 has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX Titan is 2355 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 580 is 791. The GTX Titan having 1564 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX Titan delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 580.

The GTX Titan transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 580. This means that the GTX Titan is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 580.

The GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition requires 250 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 580 requires 244 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX Titan and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GeForce GTX 580. The GTX Titan requires 6 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 580 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX Titan to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GTX 580.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX Titan. Check its page to know more about its Core.
This edition has no special features - no overclocking out of the box and no custom cooling system.
Therefore, its performance is exactly like the reference GeForce GTX Titan.
GeForce GTX 580 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.

The Fermi Architecture was first manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GF110-375-A1 which has 16 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 772MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 384-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002Hz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 244W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 6-pin and one available 8-pin connectors.

GeForce GTX 580 competes with Radeon HD 6970 and proves to be around 10% faster.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 580 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Decent Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
