In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Lightning 6GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition.

The GTX 980 Ti has a 366 MHz higher core clock speed but 48 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GTX Titan. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 980 Ti manages to provide 24.2 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 980 Ti has a 366 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Render Output Units than the GTX Titan. This results in the GTX 980 Ti providing 75.3 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 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GTX Titan, and so the GTX 980 Ti 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 GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Lightning 6GB Edition and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 980 Ti has 52.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX Titan, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 980 Ti is much better than the GTX Titan.

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Lightning 6GB Edition has 2816 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition has 2688. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 980 Ti is 4957 and the actual shader performance of the GTX Titan is 2355. The GTX 980 Ti having 2602 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 980 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX Titan.

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Lightning 6GB Edition requires 250 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 980 Ti and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX Titan. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 980 Ti MSI Lightning 6GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Enthusiast GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1203MHz, instead of 1000MHz and goes up to 1304MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock has been increased from 1753MHz to 1774MHz.

Frame Buffer

Cooling Solution
MSIís Twin Frozr V Thermal Designs are equipped with Zero Frozr technology which was first introduced by MSI back in 2008. Zero Frozr technology eliminates fan noise in low-load situations by stopping the fans when they are not needed. Compared to other graphics cards, there is no continuous hum of airflow to tell you thereís a powerful graphics card in your gaming rig.
