OLD Maxwell TitanX: why doesn't it always beat the 980Ti in benches?

Since both these GPU's are Maxwell and the OLD TitanX has more of everything (i.e. shaders, TMU's, ROPS and memory)
shouldn't the OLD TitanX always be faster than the GTX 980Ti?

Clock speed differences played in to it too... But yes, the Titan X was the faster card stock for stock.

Just takes a quick look at the clockspeeds to tell you why. Reference on reference (you know, apples to apples) the Titan X was slightly faster. Then you have AIBs overclocking the 980ti cards and Titan X fell to second place in some titles...there isn't a Titan X that was overclocked AFAIK.

Thanks ED. So is what you wrote generally true of all the Titan series (Titan, Titan Black, Titan Z, Pascal Titan X)? Why doesn't Nvidia let AIB's roll their own Titans?
