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 560 SLI.

The GTX Titan has a 27 MHz higher core clock speed and 112 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 560. This results in the GTX Titan providing 96.8 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 27 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560, but the GTX 560 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX Titan. As a result, the GTX 560 exhibits a 11.6 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 a year more recently than the GTX 560, 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 GTX 560.

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 560, 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 32.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560, which means that the memory performance of the GTX Titan is noticeably better than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 SLI has 672 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition has 2688. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 1089 and the actual shader performance of the GTX Titan is 2355. The GTX Titan having 1266 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 560.

The GTX Titan transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560. This means that the GTX Titan is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 SLI requires 300 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 560 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX Titan. The GTX 560 requires 50 Watts more than the GTX Titan to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 560 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX Titan.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 560 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 560 put together using NVIDIA's SLI Technology.

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.

GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs Codenamed GF114-325-A1 which, together, offer 672 Shader Processing Units, 12 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at 810MHz.

Memory
Each GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002MHz.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption should not surpass 300W.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Performance Similar to a Single GeForce GTX 580.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 560 SLI is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
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.
