Gigabyte GTX 750 Ti Black Edition Features
What’s so special about a Black Edition graphics card and what is this “extended server level 168-hour durability test“?
- GIGABYTE Black Edition motherboards undergo an extra 168 hours (7 days) of stress testing before shipment to ensure premium quality for our customers.
- During the 168 hour test, each motherboard needs to pass rigorous, full system validation testing for 1 full week. GIGABYTE has built a custom testing facility at our Taiwan (Nanping) factory.
- A Certificate of Validation is included with every board, issued by the GIGABYTE factory and signed by the manufacturing VP & GM to indicate that each board has passed our highest test standards.
Aside from earning the suffix Black Edition, this variant of Gigabyte GTX 750 Ti is an OC Edition as well. It features a base clock speed of 1163 MHz and boost clock speed of 1242 MHz. A reference GTX 750 Ti has a standard base speed of 1020MHz and boost speed of 1085MHz.
The Gigabyte GTX 750 Ti Black Edition has a total of 640 CUDA cores in total and a 2GB GDDR5 VRAM with a clock speed of 5400MHz, running on a 128-bit memory interface. It supports PCI Express 3.0 x16 bus interface, and requires at least a 400W power supply and a 6-pin PCIE power connector for the card to properly function.
Now let’s take a look at the physical features of the graphics card. The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 750 Ti Black Edition features WindForce 2X cooler design with anti-turbulence-parallel inclined fin design.
