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 Nvidia GTX 970 is a game changer in terms of performance per watt and value for money. The GTX 970 is based on Nvidia's ground-breaking Maxwell architecture which delivers considerable clock for clock performance gains over Kepler, its predecessor. Comparing the GTX 970 and 780 Ti shows that the two cards offer comparable performance yet the new GTX 970 costs nearly half as much! Unsurprisingly Nvidia are discontinuing the 780 Ti as it's now largely redundant. These price to performance gains typically occur once or twice a decade and although the new Maxwell architecture will improve down the line with the release of the Ti/Titan versions, at the moment the 970 offers the best value for money on the market by miles. Since this summary was originally written AMD have slashed prices and older Nvidia models (780/780 Ti/770) have also been hugely discounted.
