In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z EVGA Hydro Copper 12GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 SLI.

The GTX 770 has a 288 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX Titan, but the GTX Titan has 224 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 770. As a result, the GTX Titan exhibits a 96 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 770. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 770 has a 288 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX Titan, but the GTX Titan has 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 770. As a result, the GTX Titan exhibits a 5.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 770. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX Titan was released less than a year after the GTX 770, 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 8192 MB more video memory than the GTX 770, 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 223.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 770, which means that the memory performance of the GTX Titan is massively better than the GTX 770.

The GeForce GTX Titan Z EVGA Hydro Copper 12GB Edition has 5760 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 SLI has 3072. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX Titan is 5420 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 770 is 3333. The GTX Titan having 2087 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 770.

The GeForce GTX Titan Z EVGA Hydro Copper 12GB Edition requires 375 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770 SLI requires 400 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 700 Watts for the GTX Titan and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the GTX 770. The GTX 770 requires 25 Watts more than the GTX Titan to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 770 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX Titan.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX Titan Z EVGA Hydro Copper 12GB Edition is a special edition of the enthusiast GeForce GTX Titan Z.
This edition comes with a custom cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX Titan Z benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 705MHz to 758MHz while its boost clock is now of 941MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 6% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so both GeForce GTX Titan Black in SLI and Radeon R9 295X2 are still faster.
GeForce GTX 770 SLI is a combination of 2 GeForce GTX 770 put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.
Together, this combination offers 3072 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This, on a 256-bit memory interface, per card, of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 1046MHz and goes up to 1085MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1752MHz.
Best case scenario, this combination performs better than dual-graphics GeForce GTX 690 but ultimately, its performance depends on the driver support and on the 3D application.
Therefore, and paired with a powerful processor, all demanding games are playable at the highest settings. Still, this combination might surpass the 450W barrier of TDP and so it will require a very powerful PSU.
