In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition.

The GTX 980 has a 89 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 980. This results in the GTX 980 providing 11.3 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 has a 89 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 980 providing 5.7 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 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 GeForce GTX 980 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB 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 has 1.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 980, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 980 is marginally better than the GTX 980.

Both the GeForce GTX 980 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition have 2048 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GTX 980 has 11.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate, 5.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, and 1.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, so should have a slightly faster performance than the GTX 980.

The GeForce GTX 980 Zotac AMP! Omega Core 4GB Edition requires 200 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 980 Palit 4GB Edition requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 980 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 980. The GTX 980 requires 20 Watts more than the GTX 980 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 980 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 980.
