Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 780 Ti vs GeForce GTX Titan
IntroThe GeForce GTX 780 Ti features core clock speeds of 875 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 2880 SPUs as well as 240 TAUs and 48 ROPs.
Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX Titan, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 837 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1502 MHz on this particular card. It features 2688 SPUs as well as 224 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical BenchmarksBoth cards have the same power consumption.
In theory, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti will be 17% faster than the GeForce GTX Titan in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 780 Ti will be a small bit (approximately 12%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX Titan. (explain)
Pixel RateThe GeForce GTX 780 Ti should be a bit (about 5%) better at AA than the GeForce GTX Titan, and also should be able to handle 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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 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 higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better 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 maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
