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 580 is released this week and is AMD’s latest flagship GPU based on second generation Polaris architecture. For all intents and purposes it is a refresh of the RX 480 released just 10 months prior. Modifications to the architecture have yielded improved performance per wattage and increased clock speeds of around 10% for base and around 5% for boost. The RX 580 will come with either 4GB or 8GB of high-bandwidth GDDR5 memory. Exact pricing for this mid-range chip remains to be seen, but the RX 500 series is likely to cannibalize sales of AMD’s 400 series. Performance wise, the RX 580 is in direct competition with NVIDIA’s popular GTX 1060 6GB which in now 9 months old. Perhaps after last year’s ill timed head to head release of the RX 480 and the faster but similarly priced GTX 1060 (a standoff which NVIDIA seem to have won based on market share), AMD are attempting to draw back some market share with the newer, slightly upgraded RX 580. The upcoming release of the 500 series comes ahead of AMD’s Vega architecture, for which specification and pricing details are not yet public but which will is expected to yield a significant jump in performance compared to Polaris. [Apr '17 GPUPro]
