In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan iChill Accelero Hybrid Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition.

The R9 270X has a 163 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX Titan, but the GTX Titan has 144 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 270X. As a result, the GTX Titan exhibits a 121.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R9 270X. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R9 270X has a 163 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX Titan, but the GTX Titan has 16 more Render Output Units than the R9 270X. As a result, the GTX Titan exhibits a 9.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R9 270X. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R9 270X was released less than a year after the GTX Titan, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 R9 270X, 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 96.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 270X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX Titan is massively better than the R9 270X.

The Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX Titan iChill Accelero Hybrid Edition has 2688. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 270X is 1251 and the actual shader performance of the GTX Titan is 2634. The GTX Titan having 1383 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 R9 270X.

The Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition requires 180 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX Titan iChill Accelero Hybrid Edition requires 265 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 270X and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX Titan. The GTX Titan requires 85 Watts more than the R9 270X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX Titan may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R9 270X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 270X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "Tri-X", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 1000MHz to 1100MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1150MHz. Also, the operating memory clock is now of 1500MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card will surpass a Radeon HD 7950.
GeForce GTX Titan iChill Accelero Hybrid Edition is a special edition of GeForce GTX Titan. Check the page of the reference card to know more about its Core.
It features an integrated air and liquid solution which offers 200% better cooling performance and 9 times quieter than the stock cooler, according to Inno3D.
It comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit, which was increased to 937MHz and can now achieve 980MHz, in Turbo Mode and surpass the 1GHz barrier, easily, as it's known, Titan has the Kepler GPU Boost 2.0, which raises the GPU's central unit and Shaders speeds to a frequency even higher to the one the Turbo Boost allows, if the GPU's temperature and Voltage allows it - and since Titan's cooling system is improved, the maximum possible value should be higher.
There are no benchmarks available but expect almost similar performance to GeForce GTX 690.
