NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GTX 750 Previewed – Reference Design, Performance and Specifications Unveiled

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GTX 750 Previewed – Reference Design, Performance and Specifications Unveiled

NVIDIA’s upcoming Maxwell based GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GeForce GTX 750 have been leaked and previewed by custom PC site, UKGamingComputers (via Videocardz). The surprising thing is that this is the second leak regarding the cards that is from a PC builder since the Chinese leak we saw earlier was also a custom gaming PC listing which included the GeForce GTX 750.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GTX 750 Previewed

As expected, Maxwell is headed to consumers soon and will bring new levels of power efficiency,
something that NVIDIA has strive to deliver with their Kepler
generation of graphics processing units. Maxwell will have approximately
three Tiers basically, Tier One will consist of 200W+ Discrete GPUs.
The lowest tier will have 2W and 3W SoC Tegra Parts and ultra low voltage
gpus. The middle tier will cover everything in between. The first GPU
will ofcourse be the GM107 and will come in both Desktop and Mobile
parts. The GeForce 800M lineup got announced a while back so it will be
interesting to see some entry-level chips featuring the new core. The
specs for both cards are detailed below:

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti will be the top most GM107 graphics
card featuring 960 CUDA Cores, 80 TMUs, 16 ROPs and a 2 GB GDDR5 memory
operating along a 128-bit interface. The clock speeds would be
maintained at 1085 MHz for core, 1163 MHz boost and 1375 MHz memory clock
though these might not be the reference clocks since we have noticed a
lower clocked variant of the GeForce GTX 750 Ti in the past. The GeForce
GTX 750 Ti would launch on 18th February 2014 for a price around $129-$139 US.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 (Non-Ti) is also based on the GM107 core
architecture featuring 768 CUDA Cores, 64 TMUs, 16 ROPs and a 1 GB GDDR5
memory interface. The clock speeds for this graphics card are
configured at the same 1085 MHz core and 1163 MHz boost but the memory
runs slower at 5.1 GHz effective clock speed (1275 MHz QDR). Its safe to
assume that these are factory overclocked models since we have already
seen the previously listed GTX 750
with lower clock speeds of 1020 MHz core. The GeForce GTX 750 is also
planned for launch on 18th February and would stick close to the $100 US
price range.

NVIDIA Maxwell GM107 GPU

Update – Videocardz has
managed to get die shots of the Maxwell GM107 GPUs. The GeForce GTX 750
Ti is based on the GM107-400 core while the GeForce GTX 750 is based on
the GM107-300 core. The GM107 measure exact 156mm2 and the power consumption for the GeForce GTX 750 Ti is rated at around 75W.

Previous and latest performance numbers
leaked show the GeForce GTX 750 Ti rushing past the Radeon R7 260X and
the GeForce GTX 750 competing against the Radeon R7 260. As i had
already stated, NVIDIA could stir up some competition in this already
heated sub-$150 market with these new arrivals. Their GeForce GTX 650 Ti
boost is a well competitor and the Radeon R7 260X doesn’t show a good
value against the Radeon HD 7850 2 GB models. AMD might answer with a
price drop on their GPUs once the Maxwell GPUs are out. The GeForce GTX
750 Ti is confirmed to launch on 18th February, the GeForce GTX 750 is
also expected to launch around the same date.

The numbers for UKGamingComputers show the GeForce GTX 750 faster
than its predecessor, the GTX 650 and the GeForce GTX 750 Ti faster than
the GeForce GTX 650 Ti. Comparison with GeForce GTX 660 was pointless
since the card is set in a totally different price category. AMD is
preparing their Radeon R7 250X as a response to the Maxwell cards but
the specifications for that part are an unknown at the moment.
