In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Zotac 4GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition.

The GTX 980 has a 289 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX Titan, but the GTX Titan has 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 980. As a result, the GTX Titan exhibits a 43.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 980. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 980 has a 289 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX Titan. This results in the GTX 980 providing 31.9 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 980 was released over a year more recently than the GTX Titan, and so the GTX 980 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX Titan.

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 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 980, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GTX Titan has 64 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 980, which means that the memory performance of the GTX Titan is much better than the GTX 980.

The GeForce GTX 980 Zotac 4GB Edition has 2048 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition has 2688. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 980 is 3362 and the actual shader performance of the GTX Titan is 2355. The GTX 980 having 1007 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX Titan performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GTX 980 Zotac 4GB Edition requires 165 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 980 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX Titan. The GTX Titan requires 85 Watts more than the GTX 980 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 GTX 980.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 980 Zotac 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's high-end GeForce GTX 980 4GB created by Zotac. It doesn't have any new features. Read below to know more.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Clock Frequencies of both Central Unit and Operating Memory Clock Remain the Same.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Power Consumption
Zotac didn't specify any Rated Board TDP. It should remain the same. A 500W PSU with at least 2 6-pin available recommended is required.

Release Price
GeForce GTX 980 Zotac 4GB Edition was released for $549.99. That's the same price of the reference Graphics Card.

Without a New Cooling Solution or overclocking out of the box, GeForce GTX 980 Zotac 4GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GTX 980 4GB. Therefore, Dual GeForce GTX 690 is still slightly faster.
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.
