GeForce GTX 750 Ti Review
GeForce GTX 750 Ti is a performance Graphics Card based on the first variant of the Maxwell architecture.
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.
It equips a GPU codenamed GM107-400-A2 which has 5 SM activated and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1020MHz and goes up to 1085MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1350MHz.
DirectX 11.2 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan and is identical to the one seen on GeForce GTX 650. The Card is known to run very cool and has a maximum operating temperature of 95ÂºC.
With a rated board TDP of 60W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.
Pricing is identical to the one seen on its predecessors - $149.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is largely better than its predecessor's but Radeon HD 7850 and GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition still offer better performance, due to their high memory bandwidth transfer rates.
We recommend a strong processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Six Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
