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 295 Asus Mars ROG 4GB Edition.

The GTX Titan has a 189 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 295. This results in the GTX Titan providing 83.8 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 189 MHz higher core clock speed but 8 fewer Render Output Units than the GTX 295. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX Titan manages to provide 3.9 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 Titan was released over three years more recently than the GTX 295, and so the GTX Titan is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 295 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 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 295, 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 6.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 295, which means that the memory performance of the GTX Titan is marginally better than the GTX 295.

The GeForce GTX 295 Asus Mars ROG 4GB Edition has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition has 2688. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 295 is 715 and the actual shader performance of the GTX Titan is 2355. The GTX Titan having 1640 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 295.

The GTX Titan transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 295. This means that the GTX Titan is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 295.

The GeForce GTX 295 Asus Mars ROG 4GB Edition requires 500 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the GTX 295 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX Titan. The GTX 295 requires 250 Watts more than the GTX Titan to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 295 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX Titan.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 295 Asus Mars ROG 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Dual Graphics GeForce GTX 295, created by Asus.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 648MHz, instead 576MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 1100MHz while the Frame Buffer is now of 4GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU. Furthermore, the GPU now accesses a 1024-bit bus width.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Benchmarks indicate a 20% performance boost over the reference GeForce GTX 295.
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.
