Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX Titan vs Geforce GTX 780
IntroThe GeForce GTX Titan uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 837 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1502 MHz on this specific card. It features 2688 SPUs as well as 224 Texture Address Units and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.
Compare those specifications to the Geforce GTX 780, which has core speeds of 863 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 192 Texture Address Units and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

3DMark Fire Strike
Grand Theft Auto V | 1920x1080 | Very High
Power Usage and Theoretical BenchmarksBoth cards have the same power consumption.
Both cards have the exact same memory bandwidth, so theoretically they should have the same performance. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX Titan will be a bit (about 13%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Geforce GTX 780. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Geforce GTX 780 is a small bit (more or less 3%) better at FSAA than the GeForce GTX Titan, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)
Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.
Please note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords - sometimes it might show cards with very similar names that are not exactly the same as the one chosen in the comparison. We do try to filter out the wrong results as best we can, though.
Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
