Review: 13% faster than reference design

EVGA has launched no less than ten cards based on Nvidia's new, power efficient Maxwell architecture. EVGA has six different GTX 750 cards and four GTX 750 Ti cards. All of them are based on the GM 107 GPU, but cards with the Ti suffix have 640 shaders and 2GB of memory, while the plain GTX 750 feature 512 shaders and 1GB of memory. In addition to reference GTX 750 cards, EVGA also has two SKUs with 2GB of memory. The GTX 750 Ti also has 16 ROPs, 40 TMUs and five streaming multiprocessors (SM). The GTX 750 has four streaming multiprocessors, 16 ROPs and 32 TMUs.

product-overview

Nvidia's Maxwell architecture deliver exceptional power/watt efficiency which was made possible by redesigning and optimizing the existing Kepler architecture. The GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti use about half as much power as old GTS 450 and GTX 550 Ti cards - they can even deliver smooth 1080p gaming without external power. The GTX 750 Ti delivers a twofold improvement in performance over the GTX 550 Ti.

Today we will be taking a quick look at the EVGA GTX 750 Ti FTW ACX. The FTW (For The Winn) moniker indicates that this is a factory overclocked card, while the ACX stands for Active Cooling Extreme. The product code for the 750 Ti FTW ACX is P/N 02G-P4-3767-KR.

The reference Geforce GTX 750 Ti will sell for $149 and will compete with the Radeon HD R7 265. The EVGA card comes with a factory overclock and a custom cooler and these extras will add a 20$ premium to the MSRP. In the Eurozone the 750 Ti FTW ACX card is available for about €150.

The GTX 750 Ti is said to have a 60W TDP and the GTX 750 has a 55W TDP. The card does not even use the full potential delivered by the PCIe slot (75W). However, EVGA decided to add a 6-pin power connector to the Geforce 750 Ti FTW ACX to allow up to 25W additional power (or 30% increase in power delivery). The extra juice should allow better overclocking.

The EVGA GTX 750 Ti FTW ACX is just one of many cards with a non-reference cooler and there are other factory overclocked models from other vendors as well, however the FTW is among highest clocked GTX 750 Ti cards out there.  The reference card comes with a base clock of 1020MHz (1085MHz Boost) and the FTW card comes with a Base clock 1189MHz (1268MHz Boost). The reference memory bandwidth is 86.4 GB/s, and it is the same on the EVGA card because the memory is not overclocked and it works at 5400MHz GDDR5.

The GTX 750 Ti also comes loaded with GeForce GTX gaming technologies like Nvidia GameStream, G-Sync (with included DisplayPort connector) and GeForce Experience.
