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 580 EVGA 3GB Edition.

The GTX Titan has a 65 MHz higher core clock speed and 160 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 580. This results in the GTX Titan providing 138.1 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 65 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 580 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX Titan providing 3.1 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 a year more recently than the GTX 580, and so the GTX Titan is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 580.

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 3072 MB more video memory than the GTX 580, 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 96 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 580, which means that the memory performance of the GTX Titan is massively better than the GTX 580.

The GeForce GTX 580 EVGA 3GB Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX Titan Asus Edition has 2688. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 580 is 791 and the actual shader performance of the GTX Titan is 2355. The GTX Titan having 1564 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 580.

The GTX Titan transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 580. This means that the GTX Titan is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 580.

The GeForce GTX 580 EVGA 3GB Edition requires 244 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 580 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX Titan. The GTX Titan requires 6 Watts more than the GTX 580 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX Titan to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 580.

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 580 EVGA 3GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 580, created by EVGA.

Overclock: Central Unit

Overclock: Memory Clock

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 3GB - a gimmick in most situations, as the graphics card doesn't prove to be powerful enough to run under circumstances in which 3GB are needed.

Cooling Solution

Benchmarks Indicate no Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 580.
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.
