I grew up on 80’s and 90’s TV. Most of it was pretty terrible, but some should be required watching for college classes or something. I had to share with my little sister and so I did not always get to watch what I wanted. Thankfully, I had influenced her a lot and we agreed more often than you might expect. One show we did not agree on, but she won out and so she got to watch it, was Home Improvement. You know the one, Tim Allen grunting and talking about making everything more powerful. While the desire for bigger and more powerful tools was a running joke on the show, in real life, it is nothing to laugh at.
I certainly prefer larger and more powerful components when it comes to my own PC builds, although I am limited by funds. Yet, there is a growing trend that I can support wholeheartedly to build smaller machines that use much less power but still perform well, even under the heaviest loads from the newest games. I, for one, support this movement towards smaller, lower powered machines because I know that conserving energy is important. I’m no tree hugger, but I do believe that conservation is super important, and that is just one of the reasons I am very happy to introduce the newest graphics card from EVGA, the GTX 750Ti, which utilizes the new Maxwell architecture from NVIDIA.
The EVGA GTX 750Ti is a non-reference, overclocked 750. The 750Ti from EVGA uses EVGA's ACX cooling and utilizes a 6 pin power connector for more stable overclocking. The EVGA 750Ti has a base clock of 1189MHz with a boost clock of 1268MHz. The Memory clock is set to 5400 MHz (effective). There are 640 Cuda cores and the card utilizes a standard PCIe 3.0 bus. The GTX 750 Ti from EVGA comes replete with 2048MB of GDDR5 with a memory bit width of 128. The memory speed is 0.33ns with a bandwidth of 86.4 GB/s. The 750Ti measures 4.376” tall and 9” long and only weighs 1.35 pounds and uses two expansion slots.
