In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti Zotac 1GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 383 MHz higher core clock speed but 16 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 470. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 750 Ti manages to provide 4.9 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 383 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 470, but the GTX 470 has 24 more Render Output Units than the GTX 750 Ti. As a result, the GTX 470 exhibits a 9.5 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 750 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 750 Ti was released over three years more recently than the GTX 470, and so the GTX 750 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 470 when running the latest games.

The GTX 470 has 256 MB more video memory than the GTX 750 Ti, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 470 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 470 has 49.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 470 is noticeably better than the GTX 750 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Zotac 1GB Edition has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition has 448. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 Ti is 960 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 470 is 582. The GTX 750 Ti having 378 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 470 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 750 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 470. This means that the GTX 750 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 470. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GTX 750 Ti should consume less power than the GTX 470.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Zotac 1GB Edition requires 60 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition requires 215 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750 Ti and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 470. The GTX 470 requires 155 Watts more than the GTX 750 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 470 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 750 Ti Zotac 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Fast-Middle-Class GeForce GT 750 Ti, created by Zotac.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1033MHz, instead of 1020MHz and goes up to 1111MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock remains the same while the Frame Buffer was halved to 1GB. This doesn't mean the Graphics Card performs worse as the reference card does not benefit from a 2GB frame buffer.

Cooling Solution
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by Zotac's Single Fan Cooling Solution. This means the card runs cooler under load.

Benchmarks indicate a 1% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 470.
This edition comes with a dual-fan custom solution and overclocked out of the box in the central unit which was increased from 607MHz to 650MHz, while the operating memory clock is now of 850MHz, instead of 837MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 7% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
