NVIDIA Launches GTX 750 Ti With New Maxwell Architecture 110

Vigile writes "NVIDIA is launching the GeForce GTX 750 Ti today, which would normally just be a passing mention for a new $150 mainstream graphics card. But company is using this as the starting point for its Maxwell architecture, which is actually pretty interesting. With a new GPU design that reorganizes the compute structure into smaller blocks, Maxwell is able to provide 66% more CUDA cores with a die size that is just 25% bigger than the previous generation all while continuing to use the same 28nm process technology we have today. Power and area efficiency were the target design points for Maxwell as it will eventually be integrated into NVIDIA's Tegra line, too. As a result the GeForce GTX 750 Ti is able to outperform AMD's Radeon R7 260X by 5-10% while using 35 watts less power at the same time."

    Am I the only one annoyed that average operating temperature and noise output are not standard graphic card benchmarks?

    I had understood that anyone with half a brain was on ASICs now.

    Then again anyone with half a brain wouldnt be joining the pyramid scheme so late in the game.

    Butterfly which makes the ASICS has been busted taking as long as 8 months for the orders.

    Basically you plow down $2,000 for the units and they keep them for 7 months and mine the coins with your device. Then sell it to you when the cost of the coins go up 3000% so you lose your investment and Butterfly keeps the interest made ... similiar to banks with holding cash for 48 hours etc.

    But at least banks give the money back after 72 hours after they short stocks and keep the interest on your cash first. These guys are sharks.

    Litecoins are cheaper and so are Dogecoins so it is not too late for these as with the value falling it is a great time to invest again before it goes back up.

    Hype or not, games on my gtx 760 look amazing. Looks like they are testing the waters for the next flagship.

Help! I'm trapped in a PDP 11/70!
