on performance, I'll take the extra frames of the 265, but damn, for 60w, I'm totally impressed by this card. both the 750Ti and the R7 265 would be decent upgrades from my aging GTX460.

But without the big cooler, GTX 750 Ti is daintier than a lot of sound cards we've tested.
I'm pretty sure you meant to type "video cards" on page one there. Cheers.
Actually meant sound card :) It's definitely smaller than a small video card, but I even have sound cards here that are larger.

Well.. there is not a lot of performance in it, but I love it for a reason that it is a 60W card. I mean for 60W Nvidia has seriously nailed it. The only competition is way behind, the 7750 performs a lot less for similar wattage.Let's see how AMD replies to this because after the launch of 750Ti, the 7750 is no longer the best card for upgrading for people who have a 350W PSU.I don't generally say this, but Nvidia well done! Take a bow.

Nice little card, awesome! I feel like this would be an absolutely awesome test bed for a dual chip version, great performance with minimal power usage.

The whole time I was reading the review I was like it isn't beating the 650ti boost... :( but then I remembered it uses less than half the power lol. I am impressed nvidia. While I make purchases more on performance than power consumption I can still appreciate what nvidia is doing

Don't take this as fact, but the drivers look newer for the Zotac card than the others, possibly just a bug with the older drivers? The cards are advertised as having 640 shaders anyway.

Also weird, the GPU-Z screenshot is taken with Windows 8, whereas the Gigabyte and MSI cards are on Windows 7. The mystery continues...

I wonder how well these little guys fold? With such crazy low power consumption, these might just work for my file server. It can fold at night and game well enough, since that system doesn't play anything other than WoW most of the time. Wouldn't mind them as an upgrade for my HD 5850's and 4870's in my extra rigs. Less heat and power but still plenty capable is a win win. The first Nv card I have seriously considered in quite some time. :D

who would have thought? 1080p gaming with a 300 watt power supply? I can't wait to see what laptops will do with Maxwell... shame they will only sell with 768p screens :/Dry

Also,the reviewer goes on about the R7 265 being a 150W GPU and the GTX750TI being a 60W one??However,it seems he has not read his own article:http://media.bestofmicro.com/3/3/422607/original/06-Power-Consumption-Gaming.pngThe R9 270X and HD7870 are consuming under 130W,and the R7 265 is likely to consume less power if the HD7850 is anything to go by.Yes,the GTX750TI has decent performance for a bus powered card,but the reviewer seems to be overstating the power consumption of the R7 265 and understating its performance at the same time. Why??

That's thoroughly impressive performance for just 60W. This makes me quite excited to both see what Maxwell will bring to the laptop market, where power consumption is a much bigger issue than on desktops, and what a 200W Maxwell card will bring to the high-end gaming market.

Igor took his screenshots using an older driver. They're now updated with the correct driver installed!

Maybe I have missed something but why don't we see the GTX 760 in the comparison?
760 is going to be quite a bit faster. Check out the image on the last page--the 660 still exists above the 750 Ti. Yes, the stack is confusing-looking.

There is no mystery - I got the drivers from MSI. But you can download the newest one from Nvidia directly. It's newer than media driver too :)

Yes, you are right. I only thought it would be interesting to see the difference as there are no cards between them in the 700 series.Anyway, nice article. Thanks Tom's! ;-)
 
no displayport... why, nvidia?

about the 141w peak power consumption... can a low end motherboard such as jetway/elitegroup with h81/h61 chipset handle it? will it cause throttling of other parts?

edit2: where's the "unified virtual memory" mentioned in nvidia's gpu roadmap and how was it implemented in maxwell?
