First of all, let’s compare the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB with the AMD Radeon R7 260X 2GB, both cards working at their default clock rates. The earlier-released R7 260X serves as the baseline.
With antialiasing turned on, the GeForce GTX 750 Ti is slower in BioShock Infinite, GRID 2 and especially in Company of Heroes 2 but beats its opponent in Metro: Last Light, Total War: SHOGUN 2, Sniper Elite V2 and Sleeping Dogs. It is also ahead in Hitman: Absolution, Batman: Arkham Origins and Battlefield 4 when antialiasing is disabled. In the rest of the tests these cards are roughly equal to each other. Overall, the GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB is an average 5.6% and 2.5% faster than the Radeon R7 260X 2GB with antialiasing turned off and on, respectively.
There is no doubt that the GeForce GTX 750 Ti is faster than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti but we guess it would be more interesting to oppose the new card to the comparably priced GTX 650 Ti Boost. There are a lot of such products on the market, most of them with factory overclocking. That’s why we compare our GeForce GTX 750 Ti with the original GTX 650 Ti Boost from MSI:
The new card loses everywhere save for one test mode of Hitman: Absolution and Company of Heroes 2. The average advantage of the MSI card over the GeForce GTX 750 Ti is 8.6% and 12.1% with antialiasing turned off and on, respectively.
Our sample of the GeForce GTX 750 Ti has good overclocking potential as we could increase its GPU and memory clock rates by 13.2% and 23.3%, respectively. Let’s see what performance boost this frequency growth translates into.
The performance scalability is excellent. In the worst case we get an 8.3% performance boost whereas in the best case, up to 23.8%! The average performance increase due to overclocking is 12.9% and 14.1% with antialiasing turned off and on, respectively. Graphics cards with 128-bit memory bus are usually too slow with enabled antialiasing, though.
Since the GeForce GTX 750 Ti overclocks so well, let’s compare it with the MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost at the overclocked frequencies, too:
As we can see, the overclocked Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti goes ahead in most of the games with the exception of Sniper Elite V2, Crysis 3 and Batman: Arkham Origins. But, of course, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost can be overclocked just as well.
