The results of Nvidia’s GeForce series cards are indicated in green in the diagrams. The color of AMD’s Radeons is red. The graphics cards are listed in the order of descending recommended price.
The GeForce GTX 750 Ti looks good in our first semisynthetic benchmark. It is a little faster than the AMD Radeon R7 260X, a little slower than the MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost, and beats the latter when overclocked. The more expensive Radeon R9 270 in the HIS version remains unrivalled.
Unigine Valley Bench
It’s different in Unigine Valley:
Beating the two low-end AMD-based cards, the new GeForce GTX 750 Ti falls behind the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost and cannot catch up with it even when overclocked. The MSI, in its turn, is about as fast as the Radeon R9 270 from HIS.
Total War: SHOGUN 2 – Fall of the Samurai
This game shows us a picture which is typical of the entire test session:
Working at its default clock rates, the GeForce GTX 750 Ti is somewhat faster than the Radeon R7 260X and 8-11% slower than MSI's GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost. When overclocked to 1155/6660 MHz, it can catch up with the pre-overclocked GTX 650 Ti Boost.
Sniper Elite V2 Benchmark
The GeForce GTX 750 Ti enjoys a larger advantage over the Radeon R7 260X in this game – up to 14% with disabled antialiasing. The gap from the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost is also larger, though, and the new card can't bridge it through overclocking.
Our overclocking is more rewarding in this game:
We can also note that the GeForce GTX 750 Ti is 4 to 6% ahead of the Radeon R7 260X here.
