A awesome little card for anyone who needs enough power to game but doesn't have enough cash for ultra high end. Coming in at $159.99 only $10 over the stock price it is a really easy sell with the lifetime warranty and over 10% all round out of the box OC.
We see how well the core perform - at 1202/1281MHz against the 1020/1085MHz clocks of basic non TI version it should definitively provide some bang for the bucks
What is even more IMHO interesting is the memory at 6008MHz, compared to mere 5400MHz for the non TI version.
Since this it not top-end, the effects in hi-end games (read the requirments for the GPU core) have to be turned somewhat a bit down and that is where the need to fast process the textures come handy with faster rams.
And the card is very nicely small sized… sympatic at first sight
...and for John, it support the "3 Concurent Screens"
I just change my GT630 64bit static cooler into 750Ti and I feel the different. But I should lower the game setting into high from ultra while playing Crysis 3. Im using Biostar B85S3+ with 16Gb ram. Was there any setting I've missed? Can I play the game with highest setting without lag?
Are you getting any noticeable lag or stuttering? If not…dont bother. If you are...yes. Everyone is different when it comes to what is "minimum playable frame-rates". Some peeps find 30FPS to be too slow, others 30 is fine.
Personally, I would DL'ing GeForce Experience. Install it, see what it recommends...then start increasing the settings until you start to notice slow downs. After all G.E. is meant to be conservative settings that will result in 'playable' frame-rates for everyone.
Hope that helps!
It also depend on you CPU speed. In for example the R9 295 X2 testings does the framerate increased precisely, as the CPU get overclocked. That is a i7 2600K at 4.7GHz and when 4 cores is still not enought and present bottleneck, then you might need to either get faster CPU, or lower/tweak your settings. There is a quite detailed Crysis 3 tweak guide:
Now for starters, I would disable the antialiasing and that should help a lot, if you did not do it already. There is a difference between 70fps and as low, as 32fps, as you seen in previous link in 1660x900 (or 60 vs 22fps in 1920x1080), in both cases MSAA 8x used.
So it depends on your CPU and resolution and you probably can tweak the settings down a bit, w/o seeing any noticable decrease in quality. I hardly can see the differences between various settings, yet some have huge impact on performance.
Outperforming the 580? That is very amazing for this little card.
This is predictable because the GTX 650 Ti boost has outperform the 580, but the p/w of this card is really awesome
I've been reading up on the 750 ti and most of the time the 650 ti boost did better. I have not read anything about the 650 ti boost vs 580, though. But that's only one series behind so I wouldn't expect the 580 to be outclassed by it. 660 ti>580 I could see, for example.
