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 285 SLI.

The GTX Titan has a 189 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 285. This results in the GTX Titan providing 83.8 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 189 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 285, but the GTX 285 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX Titan. As a result, the GTX 285 exhibits a 1.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX Titan. 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 three years more recently than the GTX 285, and so the GTX Titan is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 285 when running the latest games.

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 4096 MB more video memory than the GTX 285, 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 285 has 29.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX Titan, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 285 is slightly better than the GTX Titan.

The GeForce GTX 285 SLI has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition has 2688. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 285 is 311 and the actual shader performance of the GTX Titan is 2355. The GTX Titan having 2044 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 GTX 285.

The GTX Titan transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 285. This means that the GTX Titan is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 285.

The GeForce GTX 285 SLI requires 408 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the GTX 285 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX Titan. The GTX 285 requires 158 Watts more than the GTX Titan to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 285 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX Titan.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 285 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 285 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may cause micro stuttering in FPS below 30. This means this combination might even perform worse than a single GTX 285.
The optimal performance it delivers is largely better than a single GeForce GTX 295.
Therefore, this combination is sufficient for gaming at 1080p and most demanding games can be played at the highest settings.
GeForce 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.
