GeForce GTX 750 Ti "Maxwell" First Performance Numbers Out

Ahead of its rumored mid-February launch, members of Taiwanese tech forum Coolaler.com posted the first performance benchmark numbers of the card. Originally thought to be positioned between the previous-generation GeForce GTX 660 and current GTX 760, the GTX 750 Ti, according to these numbers is on average 10 to 15 percent slower than the GTX 660, which should put its performance somewhere in between the GTX 650 Ti Boost and the GTX 660.

Then again, the testers must be using some very early drivers, and performance figures of the GTX 750 Ti should get clearer as its mid-February launch date approaches. The GeForce GTX 750 Ti is an important GPU for NVIDIA, as it's the first to be based on its next-generation "Maxwell" GPU micro-architecture. NVIDIA is trying the architecture out on current 28 nm process, before launching bigger chips based on the next-generation 20 nm fab process.

What a dream.
Or progress? Might Maxwell be that good?

I am saying that would be awesome, not being sarcastic for once. I have an old 9800gt still, the green version that required no 6pin. I still love that card. Since then I have become more of a power user though and would want a 2x8pin gpu.

660 performance without even needing a 6pin. What a dream.
Um ok, the card is an low-med level card so big deal. This is your idea of a dream? Slightly faster than last gen, rather disappointing.

The highest performance card that you can get right now not needing even a 6pin is a 7750 I am pretty sure.

Notice the 650 Ti Boost disappeared so quickly? I guess it was faster than nv wanted.
I know! They were the perfect blend of price and performance! Sad to see it go.

So what?! The POS 250 w power supply that came with my mini ITX board had a 6-pin. Really, what p/s does not have at least one 6-pin?

Not quite a 660 but the kick is no six pin connector. I'd say it looks pretty impressive on 28nm. And it's not about PSU. It's efficiency, think what the big Maxwell can do. If this 750 is indeed Maxwell...

Yes. It is niche. I niche my pc used to fall into. Now I have bigger more powerfull components cooled better with water.

Are you sure about the six-pin thing? I though there was a six pin on it. This shiny new Maxwell architecture will have it's work cut out for it. The AMD 265, which is basically a massaged hd 7850, has been reviewed. And it is a price/$ and perf/watt champion. Pretty good for a two year old design.
