Stunning performance for a bus-powered graphics card - an excellent entry-level buy

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti is one of Nvidia’s two new low-cost graphics cards, the other being the GeForce GTX 750. The difference between the two is the amount of CUDA cores used by the cards, memory speed and the amount of memory. The GeForce GTX 750 has 512 CUDA cores at its disposal, along with 1GB of memory running at 5Gbit/s, while the GTX 750 Ti has 640 CUDA cores, 2GB of memory and memory running at a slightly faster 5.4Gbit/s.

The graphics processor of each card runs at the same speed, though, with a base clock speed of 1,020MHz and a boost clock speed of 1,085MHz. The graphics processors in each card Nvidia’s new Maxwell architecture, which Nvidia claims will provide 135 per cent increase in performance per core over the old Kepler-based graphics processors, along with twice the performance per watt.

Remarkably, the GTX 750 Ti requires just 60W of power to operate, which means it can be powered entirely by the PCI Express x16 bus. You’ll only need a 300W power supply and a free x16 expansion slot to use the GTX 750 Ti. The AMD Radeon R7 260X, the GTX 750 Ti’s closest rival, requires a 6-pin PCI-E power connector. The GTX 750 Ti is also just 145mm long, making it 25mm shorter than the miniscule R7 260X.

The GTX 750 Ti produced an average frame rate of 48.8fps in Dirt Showdown at a resolution of 1,920×1,080 with Ultra quality graphics and 4x anti-aliasing. This is a little lower than the 53.7fps produced by the Radeon R7 260X, but not much. The GTX 750 Ti produced a frame rate of 91.6fps when reduced the graphics quality to High, which is higher than the Radeon R7 260X’s 85.6fps average frame rate.
