In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce Titan XP are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 2GB.

The GeForce Titan XP has a 290 MHz higher core clock speed and 160 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 960. This results in the GeForce Titan XP providing 245.3 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 Titan XP has a 290 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Render Output Units than the GTX 960. This results in the GeForce Titan XP providing 99.9 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 Titan XP was released over a year more recently than the GTX 960, and so the GeForce Titan XP 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 GeForce Titan XP has 10240 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 GeForce Titan XP also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce Titan XP has 435 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 960, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce Titan XP is massively better than the GTX 960.

The GeForce Titan XP has 3840 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 960 2GB has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce Titan XP is 6075 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 960 is 1628. The GeForce Titan XP having 4447 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce Titan XP delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 960.

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

The GeForce Titan XP requires 250 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 960 2GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GeForce Titan XP and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 960. The GeForce Titan XP requires 130 Watts more than the GTX 960 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce Titan XP may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 960.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe GeForce Titan XP uses Pascal architecture and is the latest in Nvidia's top extreme performance Titan graphics card range.

It retailed $1200 upon its release on 6th April 2017. The successor to the Titan X Pascal 2016, the GeForce Titan XP is now Nvidia's flagship graphics card and expects to be the most powerful dedicated gaming GPU currently available.
Overview
GeForce GTX 960 2GB is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression 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.
The Second Revision of Maxwell also adds the VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination) Technology which makes scenes significantly more lifelike and believable as light interacts more realistically in the game environment and the MFAA Technology which provides the same effect as MSAA but at a much lower performance cost.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GM206-300-A1 which has 8 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 1127MHz and goes up to 1158MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
At 1920x1080, the best suited resolution for GeForce GTX 960, benchmarks indicate its performance is a little over the older GeForce GTX 670.
Therefore, GeForce GTX 770 and even Radeon R9 280X are still faster, though less energy efficient.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 960 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
