We review the MSI GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti Gaming OC edition graphics cards. They both are in bed with Nvidia's new Maxwell GPUs that offer low power consumption and Full HD capable gaming. Being an MSI Gaming product you can expect a customized PCB and a simplified TwiNFrozer cooler that will keep the product nicely chilled down.
That's right, Maxwell as Nvidia now is slowly moving away from Kepler. The first Maxwell GPU released is the GM107, which has been baked and plastered onto the GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti graphics cards. Maxwell makes use of a 28nm node manufacturing process, later models however should move down to a 20nm manufacturing process. Nvidia launches two initial products today, the GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti. Both hover on the entry-level to mainstream level segment. As such the GeForce GTX 750 Ti will get 640 CUDA cores, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs. These cards will be equipped with 2GB GDDR5 memory bound over a rather narrow 128-bit interface. In terms of clock frequencies, depending on brand/oem 1020 MHz will be the baseline target for the main clock frequency on the GPU while the cards can boost towards 1084 MHz. The 'standard' GeForce GTX 750 will get 512 CUDA cores, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs, with just 1GB graphics memory though. Overall the GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti, as we'll demonstrate, will enough horsepower to step into the DX11 gaming arena at up-to 1920x1080 (Full HD) resolution. Now that doesn't mean that all modern titles will be playable with good image quality settings, let's just say that dated titles with a resolution of 1920x1080/1200 will be playable. And if you can forfeit to medium quality settings in a game and don't do any crazy stuff anti-aliasing wise, it's definitely plausible to play games really nicely at FullHD versus acceptable framerates. The GeForce GTX 750 (Ti) graphics cards will be launched in the sub 150 USD/EUR price range.
MSI offers both the GTX 750 and 750 Ti as factory overclocked Gaming OC edition. As such the core clock frequency of both products has been increased from 1020 Mhz towards 1080 MHz. Have a peek the GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti M<SI gaming OC models, and then head on over next page please.
