Default GTX 750 Ti Review; NVIDIA's Maxwell Arrives (Comment Thread)

The GTX 750 Ti not only represents a move to better compete against AMD's R7 260X but it also includes the first implementation of NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture. Combining great performance and awesome efficiency, there's a lot to be excited about here.

I wasn't that impressed reading the first few performance metrics until I saw the last two sections: Power usage and overclocking, using 50+ watts less than the only slightly faster GTX 650 TI boost and overclocking by nearly 250 mhz on the core. That was quite the eye opener, and I'm looking forward to this extrapolating to some nice GTX 760 or 765 (ti) type cards with some more oomph. Nice review and thanks for the foretelling last week during the r7 265 discussion.

I'm still happy I bought a GTX 650 TI boost for my Cooler master elite 110 water cooled build, but this looks like a super-duper performance per watt card, more than capable than keeping your average 1080p gamer quite happy.

From a price/performance point of view, it really is underwhelming compared to a 650Ti Boost from a year ago. Less performance for similar amounts of money... Performance per Watt be damned, at this price point, it's all about the MONEY!

Good review Sky. I don't see this as a gamers card at 1080p. Any card that dips below 30 FPS just don't cut the muster. Maybe for HTPC or something. And no SLi support? If any cards NEED SLi/CF it is those incapable of sustaining frames over 30 per second on their own. imho.

In its defense, the in-game settings were pretty much maxed out.

MP3 and Hitman min fps is more than a scattershot when you compare the 265, more than 10fps.

X50ti is usually a waste, ti should be dropped from it's moniker because it usually suckers the uninformed to buy it then not understand why it performs at the bottom or near the bottom . With mining driving cards up it's the worst time to consider any purchase.
