In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Palit 2GB Edition.

The GTX 1080 Ti has a 353 MHz higher core clock speed and 160 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 960. This results in the GTX 1080 Ti providing 259.4 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 1080 Ti has a 353 MHz higher core clock speed and 56 more Render Output Units than the GTX 960. This results in the GTX 1080 Ti providing 94.1 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 GTX 1080 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GTX 960, and so the GTX 1080 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 960.

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 1080 Ti has 9216 MB more video memory than the GTX 960, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 372.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 960, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is massively better than the GTX 960.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has 3584 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 960 Palit 2GB Edition has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is 7654 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 960 is 1628. The GTX 1080 Ti having 6026 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 960.

The GTX 1080 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 960. This means that the GTX 1080 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 960.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti requires 220 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 960 Palit 2GB Edition requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 1080 Ti and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 960. The GTX 1080 Ti requires 100 Watts more than the GTX 960 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 960.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the top 1000 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Pascal architecture.

Architecture
The Pascal architecture aims for twice as much Performance as the Maxwell Architecture and introduces support for second gen HBM.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed P102-300-A1 which has 3584 Shader Processing Units, 224 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1480MHz and goes up to 1584MHz, in Boost mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 11.2GB frame buffer of second gen GDDR5X memory, through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1376MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 220W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with 2 power connectors, a 6-pin and an 8-pin connector.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 960 Palit 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 960 2GB, created by Palit.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit Remains the Same.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock and the Frame Buffer remain the same.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Performance
Without Any Overclock Out of The Box, GeForce GTX 960 Palit 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GTX 960 2GB.
Recommended CPU-Intel Core i7-3770S 4-Core 3.1GHz
Intel Core i5-7600 3.5GHz
