In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Galaxy HOF 3GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 CUHC 3GB.

The GTX 780 has a 106 MHz higher core clock speed and 128 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 580. This results in the GTX 780 providing 135.6 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 780 has a 106 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 580 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 780 providing 5.1 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 780 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 580, and so the GTX 780 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the 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 GeForce GTX 780 Galaxy HOF 3GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 580 CUHC 3GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 780 has 86.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 580, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 780 is much better than the GTX 580.

The GeForce GTX 780 Galaxy HOF 3GB Edition has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 580 CUHC 3GB has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 780 is 2438 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 580 is 922. The GTX 780 having 1516 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 780 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 580.

The GTX 780 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 580. This means that the GTX 780 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 580.

The GeForce GTX 780 Galaxy HOF 3GB Edition requires 250 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 580 CUHC 3GB requires 244 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 780 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 580. The GTX 780 requires 6 Watts more than the GTX 580 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 780 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 580.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 780 Galaxy HOF 3GB Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 780.
This edition comes with a custom double fan cooling solution which will allow a reasonable performance boost from the start, as GeForce GTX 780 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 863MHz to 1006MHz while its boost clock is now of 1058MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 11% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs slightly better than GeForce GTX Titan.
GeForce GTX 580 CUHC (Classified Ultra Hydro Copper) 3GB is a special edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 580. See the standard version for more information about it.
The differences include increased memory and core clocks, from 4008MHz to 4212MHz and from 772MHz to 900MHz, respectively. It also includes a better cooling system to reduce the heat that resulted from the huge overclocking. The amount of video memory was doubled and is quite handy, if gaming at extreme resolutions with image improving techniques.
Benchmarks indicate a performance boost of about 7% when compared to the standard GeForce GTX 580.
All games, including demanding one's, will run on the highest settings.
