EVGA GeForce GTX 750 1GB SC Video Card Review

Test System

Before we look at the numbers, let’s take a brief look at the test system that was used. All testing was done using a fresh install of Windows 8 Pro 64-bit and benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. It should be noted that we average all of our test runs. There has been some concern of people testing a cold card versus a hot card, but we’ve always done out testing ‘hot’ since the site started back more than a decade ago.

Video Cards & Drivers used for testing:

  • NVIDIA GeForce 334.89
  • AMD: Catalyst 14.2 Beta 1.3

Intel X79/LGA2011 Platform

Video Card Test System

The Intel X79 platform that we used to test the all of the video cards was running the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe motherboard with BIOS 1501 that came out on 01/15/2014. We went with the Intel Core i7-4960X Ivy Bridge-E processor to power this platform as it is PCIe 3.0 certified, so all graphics cards are tested with PCI Express Gen 3 enabled. The Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary 16GB 2400MHz quad channel memory kit was set to XMP Profile #2. This profile defaults to 2133MHz with 1.65v and 11-12-12-30 1T memory timings. The OCZ Vertex 460 240GB SSD was run with latest firmware available. A Corsair AX860i digital power supply provides clean power to the system and is also silent as the fan hardly ever spins up. This is critical to our testing as it lowers the ambient noise level of the room and gives us more accurate sound measurements than the old Corsair AX1200 power supply that we used from 2012 till this year that had a loud fan that always ran.

    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!!

    stupid mining cunts

      • 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
