GeForce GTX 750 Ti và GTX 750 Specifications và Positioning

Having finally covered the architecture và design choices of Maxwell in-depth, let’s talk about the retail hardware itself. As me mentioned in our introduction NVIDIA’s first play with Maxwell will be the high volume markets that GK107 resides in. Ultimately this means we should kết thúc up seeing GM107 in thiết bị di động GeForce and in server GRID products too, but first NVIDIA is starting with the desktop đoạn Clip thẻ market. The desktop market affords NVIDIA the chance to lớn take more direct control, so while hệ thống & Mobile products go through additional phases of OEM/partner validation, desktop can be the first up khổng lồ bat.

In a move a bit different from usual for an NVIDIA desktop video clip thẻ launch, NVIDIA is launching multiple GM107 cards at once. Typically they’d stretch this out over a couple of weeks, but with the 700 series already on the market (& nothing better to vày with salvaged chips) there’s little reason to wait.

Starting with the GeForce GTX 750 Ti, this is NVIDIA’s flagship GM107 hàng hóa. GTX 750 Ti packs a complete GM107 implementation, comprising 5 SMMs, 640 CUDA cores, 16 ROPs, & 40 texture units, and fed by 2MB of L2 cache. In terms of design GM107 is a clear successor to GK107, as evidenced by use of just 16 ROPs.

Nevertheless it’s very important to lớn keep in mind that thanks to the Maxwell architecture GM107 hits well above its weight, so the CUDA core count difference between the GTX 750 Ti and GTX 660 makes these parts look much farther apart than they actually are. At least so long as we’re comparing Kepler and Maxwell parts, the hàng hóa number is going to lớn be the more meaningful designation as specs alone will not capture the relative power và efficiency of these designs.

GTX 750 Ti’s GM107 GPU is in turn paired with 2GB of GDDR5, on a 128-bit bus. The use of 2GB of VRAM is comtháng for cards at this price range, whereas the 128-bit bus is narrower than competing cards, but something NVIDIA doesn’t expect to be badly hindered by due lớn their efficiency improvements elsewhere. On the other hand the company also expects some of its partners lớn roll out a smaller numbers of 1GB cards in the near future, và while these will be $10 cheaper we’re of the opinion that there’s no reason to have sầu less than 2GB of VRAM on a thẻ in this price range.

When it comes to lớn clockspeeds NVIDIA will be shipping GTX 750 Ti & its GM107 GPU at slightly higher clockspeeds than its Kepler counterparts. NVIDIA is putting the core clock at 1020MHz with an official boost cloông xã of 1085MHz; and as this is a GPU Boost 2.0 we’ll see the highest boost bins top out well over 1100MHz. The VRAM on the other hvà will be clocked at 5.4GHz, which on a 128-bit bus is enough lớn provide 86.4GB/sec of memory bandwidth. The use of 5.4GHz RAM here is a bit off an oddity since no one produces GDDR5 RAM at that speed bin – these cards will have sầu to lớn be equipped with 6GHz RAM in order khổng lồ meet the required specifications – so we strongly suspect this is a board limitation, especially since the board is virtually identical to lớn NVIDIA’s board design for GTX 650 Ti, which also has the same 5.4GHz memory cloông xã.

Switching gears for a moment, let’s now cover the GTX 750. GTX 750 is based on a cut-down/salvaged GM107 GPU, utilizing just 4 of GM107’s 5 SMMs. This reduces the CUDA core count to lớn 512 và the number of texture units to 32, but it leaves the ROP/L2/memory partitions fully intact. GPU clockspeeds are identical to lớn GTX 750 Ti – 1020MHz base, 1085MHz boost – while the memory subsystem is further reduced lớn 1GB of GDDR5 running at 5GHz. As such, the GTX 750 will fall behind the 750 Ti by anywhere between 8% và 20%, depending on whether the workload being measured is memory bound or shader/texture bound.

But perhaps the most impressive sầu metric is power consumption. Due lớn NVIDIA’s optimizations efforts và 2x perf-per-watt goal for Maxwell, power consumption is way down versus the GK106 based parts that the GTX 750 & GTX 750 Ti will be replacing. NVIDIA’s official TDP – which is generally comparable within the NVIDIA sản phẩm lineup – is just 60W for GTX 750 Ti, and a lower still 55W for GTX 750. For the sake of comparison this is a bit lower than either GTX 650 or GT 640 (the desktop GK107 parts), và more importantly these new GTX 750 series cards are quite a bit more powerful than the GK107 cards at similar TDPs.

The end result is that we’re looking at either a significant reduction in power consumption for similar performance lớn GK106, or a massive sầu increase in performance as compared to GK107. Given the power limited nature of mobile in particular, this makes GM107 an especially potent GPU for NVIDIA.

With that in mind, it’s interesting lớn note that all of this comes despite the fact that both transistor counts và die sizes are up compared khổng lồ GK107. GK107 was 118mm2 for 1.3 billion transistors, & meanwhile GM107 is 148mmét vuông for 1.87B transistors. The fact that NVIDIA was able lớn increase their transistor count by 43% has a lot to with how much faster GM107 is than GK107, but at the same time the fact that die kích cỡ itself is only up by 25% showcases those die kích thước optimizations we talked about earlier.

Ultimately when we’re on a single node – this is all TSMC 28nm HP.., not HPM – there’s typically a loose correlation between die form size và power consumption in a chip staông chồng, which is something NVIDIA has been able to lớn dodge with GM107. Due to lớn all of their power optimizations NVIDIA has been able to grow GK107 to GM107 essentially for không lấy phí, and this still doesn’t take into trương mục the higher IPC of Maxwell.


NVIDIA's Product Positioning

With up to lớn 640 CUDA cores that hit above sầu their weight & a TDP below 75W, GTX 750 Ti & GTX 750 will be filling a duo of roles in the NVIDIA lineup. From a performance và price standpoint NVIDIA is placing them between the GK106 flagship GTX 660 & the GK107 flagship GTX 650. GTX 750 Ti isn’t quite fast enough khổng lồ displace GTX 660, so GTX 660 continues khổng lồ live for another day while NVIDIA uses GTX 750 Ti khổng lồ retire GTX 650 Ti Boost, and GTX 750 to lớn retire GTX 650 Ti. Both of those were based on cut-down GK106 GPUs, so there’s an immediate benefit to NVIDIA of reducing production costs, và for consumers these new GTX 750 series cards will be faster than the cards they replace by roughly the same performance factor as we’ve sầu seen elsewhere for GTX 700 series cards. Elsewhere GTX 650 và below will also live sầu for another day as budget offerings, due lớn GK107’s smaller die size and lower production costs.

Meanwhile these sub-75W TDPs means that the GTX 750 series are now going to be NVIDIA’s best cards for the sub-75W PCIe bus powered only market. GTX 650, despite its TDP.., required a 6pin PCIe power connector, so in that space the GTX 750 series is replacing the even slower GT 640 (GK107 + DDR3) as NVIDIA’s top thẻ. For the purposes of the desktop đoạn phim card space this puts the GTX 750 series squarely in the middle of the HTPC space and OEM nâng cấp space.

The HTPC space has long favored sub-75W cards for noise and space reasons, và NVIDIA’s đoạn phim decode power improvements should be further welcome in this space. In this sense NVIDIA’s petite products for smaller form factor computers will be an interesting split between the reference GTX 780 and the GTX 750 series. Reference GTX 780 being well suited for small form factor designs due lớn its well-constructed blower, và the GTX 750 series being well suited for very low power designs or designs that don’t meet the air intake requirements for a blower.

As for the OEM upgrade space, this is a fairly straightforward but large market. The two sweet spots for Clip thẻ upgrades for OEM systems are sub-150W cards for the OEMs that supply a single PCIe power plug (some of them), và sub-75W cards for OEMs that don’t supply a PCIe power plug, or even a very powerful PSU in the first place (more of them). These scenartiện ích ios are fundamentally power limited – not unlike di động – so having the fasthử nghiệm thẻ at sub-150W và sub-75W is potentially very good for business. In NVIDIA’s case they are making a clear play for the sub-75W market with these cards, and one of their marketing pushes will be lớn go after OEM upgrades.


That said, whenever we’re talking about mainstream cards the Asia-Pacific (APAC) market becomes especially important due to lớn its kích cỡ và higher price sensitivity. Countries like Trung Quốc have sầu been svào markets for cards like the GTX 750 series, so NVIDIA is expecting much of the same here. Once again NVIDIA’s strongest play will be the sub-75W market given their power advantage, as in unrestricted power scenartiện ích ios AMD will have sầu the upper hand. The wild thẻ factor here will be APAC’s far greater use of internet cafes and LAN gaming centers, as operators are likely to be more interested in power consumption when it’s spread out over numerous computers.

Pricing & Competitive sầu Landscape

Wrapping things up, the GTX 750 series will be a hard launch with immediate availability on a global scale. NVIDIA is placing the MSRP. for the GTX 750 Ti at $149 & the MSRP for the GTX 750 at $119, right between the GTX 660 and GTX 650, while pushing GTX 650 Ti out of the picture entirely. From a performance perspective sầu these cards won’t offer the kind of performance that will entice most 600 series owners khổng lồ nâng cấp (though the performance gains against GT 640 are striking), but NVIDIA is making a major effort lớn target GTX 550 Ti & GTS 450 owners as those cards turn 3-4 years old, with the GTX 750 series able to lớn easily double their performance while reducing power consumption.


AMD’s competition for the GTX 750 series will be the recently launched Radeon R7 265, and the recently price dropped Radeon R7 260X, which are phối to go for $149 và $119 respectively. Unfortunately R7 265 was not a hard launch and is not expected until the end of this month, so NVIDIA is going to have roughly two weeks of availability ahead of AMD at $149, and meanwhile at $119 we’re still waiting to see the announced price cuts take effect.

From a price/performance standpoint NVIDIA is not going to lớn be especially competitive, and this is similar lớn how NVIDIA handled the mainstream cards in the 600 series. NVIDIA is content to take second place on a price/performance basis, relying on their stronger br& name & greater briông xã & mortar retail presence to lớn Cosplay for what they thảm bại from lower performance, a strategy that apparently worked well for the 600 series. Accordingly, once they hit the market (& assuming they stay at MSRP), R7 265 & R7 260X will be faster than their GTX 750 series’ counterparts, as AMD is just outright throwing more hardware at the problem. But as a result AMD will not be able khổng lồ compete with NVIDIA’s power efficiency; in those sub-75W markets NVIDIA will have sầu the more powerful (& more expensive) options.
