In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M 2GB are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 750M SLI.

The GTX 860M has a 62 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 750M, but the GT 750M has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 860M. As a result, the GT 750M exhibits a 20.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 860M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 860M has a 62 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 750M, but the GT 750M has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 860M. As a result, the GT 750M exhibits a 14.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 860M. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 860M was released less than a year after the GT 750M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GT 750M has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 860M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 750M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 750M has 79.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 860M, which means that the memory performance of the GT 750M is much better than the GTX 860M.

The GeForce GTX 860M 2GB has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 750M SLI has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 860M is 948 and the actual shader performance of the GT 750M is 743. The GTX 860M having 205 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GT 750M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GTX 860M 2GB requires 60 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 750M SLI requires 80 Watts. The GT 750M requires 20 Watts more than the GTX 860M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 750M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 860M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 860M 2GB is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Generation of the Maxwell Architecture.

GeForce GTX 860M 2GB Features a GPU Codenamed GM107-N15P-GX-A1 which is a First Gen Maxwell GPU and is Identical to the GM107-400-A2 GPU used on the Desktop GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
It has 6 Stream Multiprocessors activated and offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

The central unit runs at 1029MHz and goes up to 1097MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1253MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.

Power Consumption
GeForce GTX 860M 2GB Consumes between 60W and 75W depending on the Scenario.

Benchmarks Indicate Similar Performance to the older GeForce GTX 770M, using the best suited Resolution - 1600x900.
As a Result, GeForce GTX 860M provides a decent experience at 900p, in most Modern Demanding Games.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 860M 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GT 750M SLI is a solution of two GeForce GT 750M put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may cause micro stuttering in FPS below 30. This means this combination might even perform worse than a single GT 750M.
The optimal performance it delivers is better than single GeForce GTX 675M and on the range of a GeForce GTX 675MX.
Therefore, this combination is sufficient for gaming at 1080p and most demanding games can be played at the highest settings.
