When the underlying GPU, the GK110, is so strong then it's in the tiny details that the differences can be found. Areas that to the average user will be meaningless, or indeed pointless, will be hugely important to those on the bleeding edge of clock speeds and cooling solutions. If you've ever suffered from a cold bug when you're trying to restart the card under LN2 you'll appreciate the molex power connector which allows the memory to defrost. As we say, things that will be of no importance to most of us, but awesome if that's what you're into.

Just stop it ASUS.
