NVIDIA has officially unleashed their latest mid-range GeForce GTX 750 series graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GTX 750. Both graphics card are based on the latest 28nm GM107 Silicon, next generation “Maxwell” architecture and will replace Kepler’s GTX 650 Ti. One of the main feature of this new architecture is that it promises performance-per-watt improvements as well as an upgraded multiprocessor design. If there is one word or phrase that would describe this new generation graphics card, that would be “power efficiency”. Check out more details about the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GTX 750 below.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti is the faster card between the two, and features 640 CUDA Cores, 16 ROPs and 40 TMUs. It comes with 2GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 1,400MHz with an effective memory speed of 5.4GHz on a 128-bit memory interface. The core processor has a base clock of 1020MHz and a boost clock speed of 1085MHz.
The GeForce GTX 750 Ti has a Thermal Design Power (TDP) of only 60W, meaning it doesn’t need any 6-pin external power. But manufacturers like Asus or MSI might add a 6-pin power connector for stability, specially for their overclocked models. Output connectors includes a Dual Link DVI-I, a Dual Link DVI-D, and a mini-HDMI.
The GeForce GTX 750 Ti is starting to roll out now and it won’t be long until it gets listed on popular online stores. It has a suggested retail price of $149 for the 2GB model and around $129 for 1GB model, of course OC version with non reference coolers might be priced higher.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750
Meanwhile, its little brother, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 is also based on the same GM107 core architecture but comes with a lesser number of CUDA cores of only 512. It has 12 ROPs, 32 TMUs and only a 1GB of GDDR5 memory on a 128bit memory interface. It has the same clock speeds with the GTX 750 Ti, 1020MHz for the base and 1085MHz for the boost clock speed. But it’s effective memory clock speed is only 5GHz.
The GeForce GTX 750 has only a total of 55W TDP and doesn’t need any external power to function, making it very efficient for its price. It will have a suggested retail price of somewhere in $120 USD and is expected to roll out together with the GTX 750 Ti.
Expect that more GeForce GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti reviews will start to come out as well.
