Game GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB Edition GeForce GT 930 2GB

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 930 2GB.

The GT 930 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GT 930 was released less than a year after the GTX 1080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 1080 has 6144 MB more video memory than the GT 930, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 has 304.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 930, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is massively better than the GT 930.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB Edition has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 930 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6691 and the actual shader performance of the GT 930 is 0. The GTX 1080 having 6691 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 930.

The GTX 1080 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 930. This means that the GTX 1080 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 930.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 8GB Edition requires 300 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 930 2GB requires 35 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 930. The GTX 1080 requires 265 Watts more than the GT 930 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 930.

Cooling Solution
DirectCU III Technology with Direct-GPU Contact Heatpipes: Exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology features direct-GPU contact heatpipes that transports more heat away from the GPU and outperform reference designs, achieving up to 30% cooler gaming performance.

At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 6% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 8% at 3840x2160.
GeForce GT 930 2GB is an upcoming middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

It equips a GPU codenamed ???? which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at XXXXMHz and goes up to XXXXMHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.

DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.
