The new GTX Titan X is based on the same Maxwell architecture as its market leading sibling, the GTX 980. In terms of specs the Titan X is basically one and a half GTX 980s with 50% more CUDA cores, 50% more texture units and 50% more transistors. Comparing the performance profiles of the GTX 980 and Titan X shows that the Titan X leads by 36% which is broadly proportional to its improved hardware specs. With performance up by 36% and prices up by nearly 100% the Titan X is a hard sell from a value perspective. Two GTX 980s cost roughly the same as one Titan X and in SLI outperform a single Titan X by around 50%. The Titan X obviously isn't aimed at value conscious buyers but if you are in the market for the fastest single consumer graphics card money can buy, then the Titan X will hit the spot perfectly. [Mar '15 GPUPro]

The RX 480 is the first graphics card to feature AMD’s new 14nm Polaris architecture. The card is due for release on June 29 (in four days time). We don’t have all the details yet but the RX 480 is rumoured to have an MSRP of $199 and it will likely perform on a par with the Nvidia GTX 970. At present we only have one benchmark so although the performance figures are provisional the RX 480 and GTX 970 do appear to be closely matched. If further tests validate these results and the cards retail at the MSRP of $199, then the new RX 480 will effectively improve graphics card price/performance ratios by a whopping 23%, something that has not happened since the release of the Maxwell based Nvidia GTX 970 nearly two years ago. In addition better price/performance for the current generation of games, the RX 480 also offers relatively strong DX12 support which provides better future proofing than Nvida’s Maxwell (970/980/980 Ti) cards. [Jun '16 GPUPro]
