Nvidia unveils Maxwell graphics-based GPUs
Dubai, February 20, 2014
Nvidia, a leader in computer graphics, has unveiled its first GPUs based on its new Maxwell graphics architecture.
The new Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GTX 750 GPUs showcase the ability of this first-generation Maxwell architecture to do more with less, said a statement.
A GeForce GTX 750 Ti running at 1080p resolution doubles the performance and uses half the power of the GTX 550 Ti, which was built with the Fermi architecture, and is one of the most used Nvidia GPUs, according to the Steam Hardware Survey.
Scott Herkelman, general manager of GeForce business unit at Nvidia, said: “We know that to advance performance, we must advance performance per watt, because every system we design for has a power limit — from supercomputers to PCs to smartphones. That's why we architected Maxwell to be the most efficient GPU architecture ever built.”
The GTX 750 Ti GPU’s small physical design, at only 5.7-inches long does not require an internal power connector. Thus, gamers with PCs equipped with integrated graphics or other small form-factor designs can switch over for a gaming experience at 1080p, without needing to upgrade their power supply.
The GPUs also include support for Nvidia’s breakthrough GameWorks programme and unique gaming technologies, including ShadowPlay, G-Sync display technology, GameStream, which allows gamers to stream their PC games to Nvidia Shield for gaming on the go, said the statement. - TradeArabia News Service
