High Performance, Low Energy Consumption

The GTX 750 series GPUs are Nvidia’s first GPUs to use Nvidia’s brand new, highly efficient SMM architecture to replace the older SMX architecture used on Nvidia’s previous generation Kepler based GPUs.

At launch, we unfortunately only got the opportunity to check out the GTX 750, which was the entry level GTX 750 series GPU. Alongside the GTX 750, Nvidia also launched the GTX 750 Ti, which is very similar to the GTX 750 with the exception that it had an extra SMM unit unlocked giving it access to 640 CUDA cores and 40 TU (Texture Units). The GTX 750 Ti also includes an additional 1GB of higher clocked GDDR5 which should theoretically give it a boost when gaming at higher resolutions.

Since we never had a chance to check out the GTX 750 Ti, we were thrilled when PNY offered us an opportunity to review their complete GeForce GTX 750 series lineup which includes the PNY GeForce GTX 750, GTX 750 Ti and the GTX 750 Ti OC. The PNY GeForce GTX 750 and the GTX 750 Ti are pretty much reference spec so reference PCB and reference clock/memory speeds, while the GTX 750 Ti OC edition will come aggressively pre-overclocked out of the box.

Let’s take a closer look at PNY’s GeForce GTX 750 series offerings.

    I have 5 of these running and they are insane, cool, quiet and very efficient low wattage.

    Beware, many reviews from customers having bad experience with PNY warranty. Apparently “lifetime” is a lie, a play on words. For example, if they stop producing that card, their warranty is null and void, they expect you to pay shipping both ways and other catches. You could buy a video card with a “lifetime warranty” one day, then have that “life time” be over the literal next day because they no longer make that specific card.

    Also read that their customer support sucks badly, hard to talk to, and may just ignore you.
