In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti Inno3D iChill X3 Ultra 6GB Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition.

The GTX 980 Ti has a 152 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 980 Ti. This results in the GTX 980 Ti providing 26.8 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 Ti has a 152 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 980 Ti providing 14.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Inno3D iChill X3 Ultra 6GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

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 Ti Inno3D iChill X3 Ultra 6GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB 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 Ti has 9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 980 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 980 Ti is marginally better than the GTX 980 Ti.

Both the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Inno3D iChill X3 Ultra 6GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition have 2816 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 Ti has 26.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate, 14.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, and 9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, so should have a significantly faster performance than the GTX 980 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti Inno3D iChill X3 Ultra 6GB Edition requires 280 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 980 Ti and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 980 Ti. The GTX 980 Ti requires 30 Watts more than the GTX 980 Ti to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 980 Ti to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 980 Ti.
