EVGA GTX 750 Ti and 750 Ti SC Unboxing Review and Benchmarks

EVGA GTX 750 Ti and 750 Ti SC Unboxing Review and Benchmarks

The NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti is one of NVIDIA's latest video cards that is aimed at the mainstream market and built upon the Maxwell Architecture. Being that is a Maxwell card, the GTX 750 Ti is capable of running without the addition of PCIE power. The EVGA card that we tested features a non-reference cooler and has a copper-core that is unique to EVGA.

Both the versions of the 750 Ti we tested share the same design and box. Inside, you'll find the usual driver's DVD and manual, an EVGA poster, a DVI adapter and the card itself. The main difference between the two cards is that the super clocked features a 156mhz higher GPU clock and in result, performs much better.

Graphics Tests

Battlefield 4

Being one of the most popular franchises to date, Battlefield 4 is the latest addition to the series that takes full advantage of the latest hardware. For our settings, we set everything to Ultra with 4x MSAA enabled.

Bioshock Infinite

We chose to use Bioshock Infinite to test the video card due to its magnificent visual qualities and the fact that it is one of the most popular PC games out at the moment. This will allow us to get an accurate benchmark of how the card will perform in real life scenarios. We tested the cards using the built-in benchmark tool with ultra graphics and DDOF enabled.

Crysis 3

Crysis 3 is still one of the most demanding games currently out on the market. It's able to put any graphics card through its paces by throwing everything at it. For the settings, we cranked the graphics to Very High with 4x MSAA.

Heaven 4.0

Widely used to test the capability of a GPU, Heaven benchmark puts maximum stress on the GPU allowing you to check stability issues and real time performance of the card. It also generates real-time in game video that gives the user an accurate reading of the cards capability. The settings that we used to test the cards were as follows: Full Screen, 4x Multisample Anti-Aliasing, and Normal Tessellation.

3DMark Fire Strike Extreme

3DMark Fire Strike offers extensive features and unbiased results by testing the full potential of DirectX 11 hardware. It is considered to be the best option out there when trying to find out the power of one’s computer as it tests both the graphics and physics capabilities of a GPU.

Temperature

To test the temperature, we use Furmark to burn in the card for 30 minutes.

Conclusion

Overall, the GTX 750 Ti is the perfect card for those looking at building a power-efficient gaming computer on a budget. It doesn't require any additional power from PCI-E cables and can sustain playable frame rates at 1080p on Battlefield 4. For this reason, we revised our Vanquish line and now feature the GTX 750 Ti on our Level 2 rig. Do you have any questions on the EVGA GTX 750 Ti and 750 Ti SC? Leave them in the comments below!
