In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan SLI are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition.

The GTX 680 has a 273 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX Titan, but the GTX Titan has 320 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 680. As a result, the GTX Titan exhibits a 232.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 680. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 680 has a 273 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX Titan, but the GTX Titan has 64 more Render Output Units than the GTX 680. As a result, the GTX Titan exhibits a 44.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 680. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX Titan was released less than a year after the GTX 680, 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 Titan has 8192 MB more video memory than the GTX 680, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX Titan also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX Titan has 384.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 680, which means that the memory performance of the GTX Titan is massively better than the GTX 680.

The GeForce GTX Titan SLI has 5376 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX Titan is 4709 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 680 is 1806. The GTX Titan having 2903 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX Titan delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 680.

The GeForce GTX Titan SLI requires 500 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition requires 195 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 680, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GTX Titan. The GTX Titan requires 305 Watts more than the GTX 680 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX Titan may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 680.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX Titan SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX Titan put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of [GeForce GTX Titan]( to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Expect this combination to draw up to 500 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Benchmarks indicate, an overall, 40-50% performance boost when compared to a single GeForce GTX Titan performing by itself. However, beware that this boost might be close to none in some games.
GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition is a Special Edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 680. See the standard version for more information about it.
Compared to the standard version, GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition features an increased core-clock that went from 1006MHz to 1110MHz and the turbo boost from 1100MHz to 1176MHz. The amount of memory was also increased from 2GB to 4GB, proving useful if gaming at high resolutions and using many image improving techniques, though we consider this excessive.
Expect a 9% performance boost when compared to the standard card.
