GeForce GTX Titan Black vs Radeon R9 295X2

Intro

The GeForce GTX Titan Black uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 889 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 2880 SPUs as well as 240 TAUs and 48 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 295X2, which comes with core speeds of 1018 MHz on the GPU, and 1250 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 2816 SPUs as well as 176 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.

It's one of those things where, if you have the power supply to handle it; chooce the 295x2. But then you kind of have to remember, the last Titan was PRIMARILY made for rendering programs such as AutoCAD, Inventor, Solidworks, etc. Radeon cards are made for gaming. So most of the time will give better preformance during these types of activities.

jake says:

now i we all know this is a dual gpu card vs a single gpu card BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT the price is only 500% difference and you get almost twice the performance in real word

ALSO
a the R9 295X2 will tie gtx titans blacks in sli
so that would be a 1500$ card tiing a 2000$ card in real wold gaming

Cracker says:

Titan Suck!
Просто выебан во все дырки и промеж сисек! xD

Nvidiasuck says:

lol get wreck nvidia

Vicious says:

Shows a lot how you guys know anything about GPUs and building concept in general. R9 295X2 is a dual GPU (just like GTX 690). Just wait till GTX 790 comes out then you'll see what happens to your R9 295X. That water cooler is pathetic.. Get an open loop kit and run it properly. I can't believe, people actually buy this... Oh well not my money 🙂 You can build such a better setup for same amount of price on GPUs.

Anon says:

For all those saying the titan sucks go and learn something about why it doesn't first. 6gb of ram on one gpu means that it can do 4k better because in dual gpu you the second lot of ram isnt used particularly well also i would like to point out that the amd card is hideously inefficient and i'd imagine fairly noisy

Revan says:

nvidia is a sinking ship as the gaming industry has adopted the AMD GNU (both consoles and PC) hehe

Cryttek says:

Titan-Z now available @ amazon.com

Spaceman Spiff says:

The 790 is two 780s put together rather then two 780Ti's

Honestly with Maxwell around the corner its a pretty lame addition to the Nvidea line up.

To the guy who doesn't have an R9 295x its ridiculous quiet and cool, Nvidea could get some tips from that hybrid design.

Spaceman Spiff says:

The 780 Ti is still king though.. many games still don't support multiple gpu's.

I never understood why people buy dual gpu cards that are/will be under clocked.. 690,790,titan Z as opposed to 2 single gpu's that can be SLI'd. Its nice that radeon stepped it up with the 295x.

Anonymous says:

The "titan Z" Came out, a dual GPU titan... And the R9 295x2 Kicks it's ass in gaming for half the price!

big VULTURE says:

آبروی انویدیا در خطره . امبدوارم تایتان زد آبروداری کنه !!!!

Brock says:

nvidia sucks everywhere, AMD is king of gaming world...

xbulti says:

R9 295X2 trumps the Titan Z at $1500 vs $3000. For those who say put Titan in SLI, spend $3000 dollars and you can crossfire R9 295X2, and if you say most games don't support multiple gpu's mantle is roling out, which takes some of the cpu load and places it onto the gpu, so yeah, AMD is easily the better choice here even the $1500 AMD card vs the $3000 Nvidia card.

Arguing over video card manufacturers if a bit like the my dad is harder than your dad bullshit, grow up kids.

Kane says:

Spaceman Spiff The Radeon R9 295X2 is faster than the 290x. Also I'm still running my maine Gaming rig with a GTX 295 and 90% of all my games that I play support Dual GPUs on one PCB. The only game that does not support dual GPUs is The Sims 4

ljl87 says:

200 bucks to get 2x the performance. Lunatic!

kkk says:

@jake
Titan does NOT tie in sli with 1x R9 295X2. Get your facts straight

kkk says:

as in meaning that R9 295X2 will still win in comparison even with 2 titans on sli.

will says:

500W ?...lol.......piece of power hungry junk..you're gonna need 1000$ for the card and another for your electricity bill..AMD is shit i bet my ass that the Nvidia equivalent of this will be a 250w tops

sdfgb says:

Any idiot who pays !!!!

Ryanccm says:

For SETI@home and Milkyway@home I would use R9 295X2 but maybe upgrade its cooling system.
