In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte IX OC 2GB Edition.

The GTX 960 has a 115 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 960 Ti, but the GTX 960 Ti has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 960. As a result, the GTX 960 Ti exhibits a 26.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 960. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 960 has a 115 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 960 Ti, but the GTX 960 Ti has 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 960. As a result, the GTX 960 Ti exhibits a 29.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 960. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 960 Ti was released less than a year after the GTX 960, 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 960 Ti has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 960, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 960 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 960 Ti has 112.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 960, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 960 Ti is massively better than the GTX 960.

The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB has 1536 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte IX OC 2GB Edition has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 960 Ti is 1809 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 960 is 1698. The GTX 960 Ti having 111 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 960 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 960.

The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB requires 140 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte IX OC 2GB Edition requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 960 Ti and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 960. The GTX 960 Ti requires 20 Watts more than the GTX 960 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 960 Ti to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 960.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB is an upcoming high-end Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM204-200-KD which has 12 SM activated and thus offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at ????MHz and goes up to ????MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 140W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Coming Soon!

System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB.
Overview
GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte IX OC 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 960 2GB, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1165MHz, instead of 1127MHz and goes up to 1228MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock and the Frame Buffer remain the same.

Cooling Solution
Packed with GIGABYTE’s unique blade fan design and pure copper heat pipe direct touch (HDT) technology, delivering superior cooling capacity and heat transfer efficiency at an extremely low noise level. Optimized fan speed according to real-time GPU temperature, effectively improving power efficiency. Measuring merely 17cm in length, the card, perfectly compatible for building most of the PCs from ATX to mini-ITX.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 2% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 960 2GB.
