NVIDIA Leads Performance Per Watt Revolution With "Maxwell" Graphics Architecture

NVIDIA Leads Performance Per Watt Revolution With "Maxwell" Graphics 
Fueling a Massive Leap Forward for Gamers, New Graphics Architecture
Boasts 2x Performance Increase With 50 Percent Reduction in Power
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/18/14 --  NVIDIA today
introduced the first GPUs based on its new Maxwell(TM) graphics
architecture, which deliver amazing gaming performance in extremely
power-efficient designs.  
The new NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GTX(TM) 750 Ti and GTX 750 GPUs showcase
the ability of this first-generation Maxwell architecture to do more
with less.  
A GeForce GTX 750 Ti running at 1080p resolution doubles the
performance and uses half the power of the GTX 550 Ti, which was
built with the Fermi architecture, and is one of the most used NVIDIA
GPUs, according to the Steam Hardware Survey.  
The GTX 750 Ti also approximates the performance of the GeForce GTX
480 -- a $499 flagship product also based on the Fermi architecture
-- while consuming only one-fourth the power, or 60 watts.  
"We know that to advance performance, we must advance performance per
watt, because every system we design for has a power limit -- from
supercomputers to PCs to smartphones," said Scott Herkelman, general
manager of the GeForce business unit at NVIDIA. "That's why we
architected Maxwell to be the most efficient GPU architecture ever
The GTX 750 Ti GPU's small physical design -- at only 5.7-inches long
-- doesn't require an internal power connector. Thus, gamers with PCs
equipped with integrated graphics or other small form-factor designs
can switch over for a great gaming experience at 1080p, without
needing to upgrade their power supply or deal with increased energy
Because the GTX 750 Ti consumes so little power, it runs extremely
quietly and generates very little heat, making it perfect for use in
home theater PCs, as well. 
The GTX 750 Ti and 750 GPUs also include support for NVIDIA's
breakthrough GameWorks(TM) program and unique gaming technologies,

--  ShadowPlay(TM), which lets gamers capture and share their gaming
    experiences on Twitch and other online sites,
--  G-SYNC(TM)(1) display technology, for smooth, stutter-free gaming
    visuals, and
--  GameStream(TM), which allows gamers to stream their favorite PC
    games to NVIDIA SHIELD for high-performance gaming on the go.

"NVIDIA understands that delivering a next-gen gaming experience means
a lot more than cranking up the clocks, heat and noise just to eke
out a few extra frames per second," said Tony Tamasi, senior vice
president of content and technology at NVIDIA. "Our GameWorks
technologies, combined with the performance, power efficiency and
cool and quiet operation of the GTX 750 Ti and 750, dramatically
change the way gamers can play."
