GTX 750 Taken Apart, Sips Power from a Single 6-pin Connector

Here are the first pictures of a partner-branded GeForce GTX 750 graphics card taken apart. It reveals a couple of things - to begin with, the GM107 silicon will bring about some genuine performance per Watt improvements, despite being based on the existing 28 nm silicon fab process, and second, that cards based on the chip will be extremely cheap to build, giving NVIDIA a good chance to strengthen its position in the sub-$200 market segment. This particular card is cooled by a simple fan-heatsink that's essentially a chunk of metal with a fan latched on to it. The card relies on a simple 2+1 phase VRM, which draws power from a single 6-pin PCIe power connector. NVIDIA is expected to launch the GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti a little later this month.

Of the seven 780's stocked at both vendors, one is cheaper at Micro Center ? Well, that's certainly indicative !

MSI N780 TF....$520 at Micro Center..........Newegg $490
EVGA SC ACX..$530 at Micro Center..........Newegg $490
EVGA Class.......$550 at Micro Center..........Newegg $540
Gigabyte OC....$520 at Micro Center..........Newegg $510
PNY.....................$520 at Micro Center..........Newegg $500

As any purchaser I would hope one doesn't restrict themselves to 2 retailers. rather then looking for the one that can provide the best deal.

Soon we'll know the prices.

Its suppose to replace a $139-159 card at $179-$199 its going up against far superior performance cards and unless your huge on power savings that's not such a good deal.

Seems apropos considering the owner of the card said that his i3 / 750 Ti system is pulling less than 120 watts when gaming
THAT is a simply amazing number!
