EVGA GeForce GTX 750 1GB SC Overclocking

We installed the EVGA Precision X v4.2.1 overclocking utility to see how the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 1GB SC video card could be overclocked! You can use whatever software utility you like for overclocking, but this is the one we used today.

In case you forgot, the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Superclocked 1GB video card already comes factory overclocked and operated at 1215MHz core (1294MHz Boost) and 1020 MHz base and the memory is clocked at 1253MHz (5012MHz effective). Let’s see how much higher we can get a this GM107 Maxwell GPU with 512 CUDA cores!

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 is very similar to the GeForce GTX 750 Ti when it comes to overclocking as both share the same GM107 Maxwell GPU. This means that things are pretty locked down when it comes to overclocking. There is no way to increase the power target beyond 100% and all the cards are currently limited to a +135MHz GPU clock offset. We weren’t able to hit the GPU clock offset limit since this card already has a hefty overclock on it, so it really isn’t a big deal that NVIDIA locked down the overclocking sliders on this card.

EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Overclock

We ended up with a GPU clock offset to +85MHz and the mem clock offset to +400MHz before we started to get encounter some stability issues due to the memory clock frequency. This overclock meant that we were running at 1456.7MHz at times thanks to NVIDIA Boost 2.0 on the core. This is pretty impressive and we were able to complete some benchmarks with stability issues with the core clock over 1500MHz. Maxwell is turning out to be a fun GPU to overclock!

GeForce GTX 750 1GB 3DMark Overclocked

By overclocking the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 1GB Superclocked video card we were able to take the score of 3911 and raise it up to 4257. This is a modest 266 point increase in our overall 3DMark score, which represents a performance gain of 6.7 percent. Our 85MHz core clock increase on the 1215MHz core is a 7% increase, so it makes sense that we are seeing a performance boost just shy of that in many of our game titles.

    I thought BF4 on Ultra even at 1920×1080 would use beyond 1gb Vram, cool to see a $99 card be BF4 playable.

    Gotta say that the temperature benchmarks for this article seem a bit off. 29 degrees idle and 55 degrees load seem to be the accurate numbers. I have no idea how this article got 19 degrees and 42 degrees? I mean was the computer set up in a freezer?

      Bro look it’s SC version also the flow of air in casing matters too.

      • Dudebro Zero

        What he is saying is 19 degrees are a suspicious temperature. Most people keep their rooms warmer than 19 degrees.

    Ill be dxxed! I figured the 260x would outperform the regular 750, But it really is not much slower than the Ti. I still do not see justification for upgrading from my current 650Ti , With no gpu boost function the regular 650Ti’s it can overclock like crazy. Especially if you modify the 650Ti’s Bios to unlock the rest of your voltage. However I will run into the problems like this 750 did in the review if I go past 1GB.

  • GamingRabbit

    Ye, its ridiculous to think about my GTX 590 uses 149Watts in IDLE!!

      • Brian Blair

        I agree, A stupid worthless waste of time, It just drives up prices making crappy cards like mine and others prices go way up, It hurts to try to upgrade now, Thanks to that I will be stuck with the stupid 650Ti for awhile. They are too dumb to realize the whole thing is a scam, You really think once your bit coins become worth anything the Federal Reserve Nazi’s Will stand for it?

        • WhoCares

          Well, at least that’s a valid point. But why should we assume that the Federal Reserve will have any credibility left in 10, 20, 30 years? Quite a bold assumption there.

        • Brian Blair

          I agree with that!
          In my opinion the federal reserve never had credibility! The federal reserve was one of the worst things ever done to this country. They of’course conveniently used the excuse of the great depression to push it on us too! But if anyone can read a history book, Or if the books have not been burned yet LOL, People would learn the truth. And the truth is it was military production during WWII that brought the USA out of the depression, And not the federal reserve at all. And still today they of’course have a dramatic excuse to promote any anti-liberty anti-constitutional BS. And for some reason people let the wool go over their eyes and never speak out.

    Just picked up two of these… Gotta say I’m blown away by the little cards. Mining Doge @ ~255Kh/s PER with the stock clocks and only drawing 55w?!? Amazing! Don’t know of any other cards that I can stuff 2 of in a stock dell and pull 500Kh/s without upgrading anything else.

  • basroil

    Looks like Nvidia really just got rid of the need to test power consumption on those cards… Can’t wait to see what the 860 series does to power consumption, should be an absolute beast for performance/power

      Leaked benchmarks showed GTX 870 will have TDP of 150 Watts
