In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac AMP! Extreme 6GB Edition SLI are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI.

The GTX 980 Ti has a 37 MHz higher core clock speed and 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 980. This results in the GTX 980 Ti providing 129.8 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 980 Ti has a 37 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Render Output Units than the GTX 980. This results in the GTX 980 Ti providing 85 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 less than a year after the GTX 980, 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 980 Ti has 4096 MB more video memory than the GTX 980, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 980 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 980 Ti has 243.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 980, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 980 Ti is massively better than the GTX 980.

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac AMP! Extreme 6GB Edition SLI has 5632 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 980 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI has 4096. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 980 Ti is 10302 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 980 is 7282. The GTX 980 Ti having 3020 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 980.

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti Zotac AMP! Extreme 6GB Edition SLI requires 500 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 980 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition SLI requires 340 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 800 Watts for the GTX 980 Ti and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 980. The GTX 980 Ti requires 160 Watts more than the GTX 980 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 980 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 980.
