Palit's new GTX 750 Ti StormX Dual comes with the fantastic power consumption improvements of the Maxwell architecture, but also includes a large overclock out of the box. Additional overclocking potential is also excellent, making this the card you want if you are after maximized performance.

wow, when you put it up agianst a 660 or 660ti, besides the power savings, one must wonder where the high score comes from??? even overclocked it gets spanked by 15%+ in bf3 .... this is not making me hopeful for this generation....

Well for a straight-up plug-n-play decent price if it holds, (as why the reference is as W1zz said priced to high), such reference Sku's will dematerialize and it will be these semi-custom OC's that will surplant that. Let's see if the 6-pin versions can provide higher clocks and then more additional OC’s.

Here's the problem Nvidia knows AMD won’t have any "War Chest" of R7 265’s to counter and those will get swirled up in that whole Litecion frenzy that makes even the 270’s become just plain stupid crazy pricing at least here in the States. This will mean Nvidia will have all the TOP, FTW, Superclock version (with a 6-pin?) and like $180 pricing (or more?). Those higher-end binned chips they offer at significant increase in pricing to AIB’s. I’d go as far as to say Nvidia pricing for any of these GM107 doesn’t leave never as much "on the bone", given its' size. But hey, AIB’s needed something to sell given where Nvidia's entry-mainstream segment has been on the respirator for a long time... it's something.

I wonder what's the reason for the outstanding performance of this card in Crysis 3.

Here's the thing as much as this efficiency is welcome in the desktop upgrade market it's not the end all. What you have from a similar size chip as Bonaire is a 40% improvement in perf/w, though perhaps only 10% improvement in true performance. Raising one bar without the other is only truly movement in one matrix. It's good... but BfB is the utmost in this entry/mainstream segment and for that Nvidia didn't do enough.

Nice to see your wildly inaccurate pricing estimations continues. I vote we make it a weekly feature at TPU.
EVGA 750 Ti SuperClocked $150
EVGA 750 Ti FTW $160
It took less time to find the pricing that it likely took you post your "estimate"....nice to see you're putting your usual amount of effort into posting.

MSI Taiwan sent me "$199" this morning, which is what I had to go by before launch.

If the card stays at $160 it's certainly more interesting, but still a tad expensive.

Um, is there a reason why you're using a 4 month old driver to test? I mean, with the release of the 750 ti literally today, wouldn't updating to the most recent drivers (which just happen to also be released today and includes support for the 750 and 750 ti, surprise surprise) be a more accurate test?

Yes. Unfortunately I do not have a time machine. So I can't have used today's drivers to benchmark last week, so I can have the reviews ready today.

How long do you estimate it takes me to run 31 graphics cards through 16 benchmarks each at 4 resolutions each ?

This card would fly with a core/mem config of, say 1300M/7GHz with a 6-pin connector. I think that is what GTX 750 Ti should have been in the first place, while retaining its $149 price tag. To show off magical power efficiency, they could have kept the GTX 750 Ti (now) as the GTX 750, and renamed the GTX 750 (now) to GTS 750. Just saying, that's what I think.

I thought about that, too, but I guess they want to sell GM108 for lower end GTS and GT

Ahhh, gotcha. Maybe in the future then?

Definitely. I'm just waiting for new titles like Thief to be released to add them, then rebench with the latest WHQL drivers. Hopefully AMD will soon release theirs.

Now this is what I call an overclock.
