In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 295 EVGA CO-OP Hydro Copper 1792MB Edition.

The GeForce GTX 780 has a 263 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 295. This results in the GeForce GTX 780 providing 69.7 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 GeForce GTX 780 has a 263 MHz higher core clock speed but 8 fewer Render Output Units than the GTX 295. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GeForce GTX 780 manages to provide 7.8 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GTX 780 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 295, and so the GeForce GTX 780 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 295 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 780 has 1280 MB more video memory than the GTX 295, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 780 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 780 has 52.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 295, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 780 is much better than the GTX 295.

The GeForce GTX 295 EVGA CO-OP Hydro Copper 1792MB Edition has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 780 has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 295 is 662 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 780 is 2078. The GeForce GTX 780 having 1416 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 780 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 295.

The GeForce GTX 780 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 295. This means that the GeForce GTX 780 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 295.

The GeForce GTX 295 EVGA CO-OP Hydro Copper 1792MB Edition requires 289 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 780 requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 680 Watts for the GTX 295 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GeForce GTX 780. The GTX 295 requires 39 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 780 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 295 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 780.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the reference GeForce GTX 295.
GeForce GTX 780 is a high-end graphics-card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
It's based on the Kepler GK110 Core (same used on Titan) but with 12 SMX activated and therefore offers 2304 Shader Processing Units, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs on a 384-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 863MHz and goes up to 902MHz in Turbo, the memory clock operates at 1502MHz. It consumes up to 250W.
Benchmarks indicate that its performance is up to 30% better than previous GeForce GTX 680 and thus allows even the most demanding games to be playable at the highest settings, at 1080p. With proper overclocking and cooling, it can surpass GeForce GTX Titan.
