Nvidia GeForce GTX 750Ti: First look!

I was on eBay when I spotted a brand new Nvidia GTX 750Ti 2GB card on sale. I was getting pretty tired of my AMD HD5750 1GB card, so I decided to pick it up:

Turns out its a Palit GeForceGTX 750 Ti StormX Dual with 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM. I went onto Passmark to get a comparison against my old card:

So thats a 2.75x performance increase, with even more performance-per-money value! Here are a few more pictures:

A closeup of the dual fannage – should be a quiet card with two slower spinning fans than one fast spinning fan.

The back of the card. The PCB is actually about the length of the PCI-E connector, more length has been added by making the heatsink longer and adding a metal brace to the back. As for that PCI-E power connector…

…there isn’t one. The card has a TDP of only 60W, which can all be supplied by the PCI-E slot (which can do 75W). This is great for low power consumption and cable management!

As for the connectors on the back, there are mini-HDMI, DVI-D and VGA(!) ports. You will need an adapter to use mini-HDMI with a full sized cable. The top slot is all venting for some of the warmer air to escape out of (not much, since the card is open on all sides so the warmer air will mostly end up in your case).

Check back tomorrow for performance results under Ubuntu Linux 15.04 and Windows 7!
