Graphics card company Nvidia has today announced that they will be refreshing their budget entry-level lineup, introducing the new GeForce GTX 750 class GPUs.

The new cards will be powered by Nvidia's latest graphics architecture, "Maxwell," which has been revealed as having more than twice the efficiency on a performance per watt basis as its predecessor, "Kepler."
Our new GeForce GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti GPUs feature first-generation “Maxwell” technology, redefining entry-level gaming with performance per Watt efficiency double that of Maxwell’s immediate predecessor, “Kepler”, and quadruple that of “Fermi”, an architecture launched only four years ago. With unprecedented improvements in performance and power efficiency, first-generation Maxwell GPUs are the world’s most efficient, enabling their use in off-the-shelf systems equipped with low-Wattage power supplies and sub-par integrated GPUs (IGPs).
It isn't just performance that the Maxwell chipset offers, with Nvidia revealing physical changes too. Compared to the GTX 550 Ti which uses 116 watts, the GeForce GTX 750 Ti performs at just a low voltage of 60 watts; that drop allowed Nvidia to also modify the original 6-pin connector, now allowing the graphics card to operate entirely off the motherboards power.

Both card variances - the GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti - come equipped with 1GB of GDDR5 VRAM, though the 750 Ti also offers a 2GB variant for power sake. Both will clock in at 1020 MHZz base clock, with a boost clock of 1085 MHz and 5.4Gbps memory speed. Do note that these new cards will not be SLI compatible, but considering the entry price point its fairly obvious you wouldn't be acquiring them for such tasks. You can read up on the full specifications over here.

Prices in Australia start at $169 for the GTX 750 series, and $219 for the GTX 750 Ti, a considerable jump from the American pricing of $119 and $149 respectively.

Nice. This might now be the fastest single slot card out there (edit: at a reasonable price point). I run a 7750 single slot passed through to a VM on my virt box for when I need a second PC with windows/can run games. This sounds like it'll be faster and run a bit cooler!

Plays Titanfall faster than an xbox. About a GTX 480 in power, but it only consumes about 60 watts.

The performance per watt in the higher end cards will beat AMD for coin mining in that regard.

(It's certainly not the fastest out there, but it's the first chip among a line of chips on the way that will be the fastest out there.)

Great card for it's price and the low power consumption is a huge plus.

I wonder how this will be priced here in Malta, Most probably 143-150 Euro just like the 550ti and 650ti cards which wouldn't be worth it compared to what the R9 270x offers in terms of price and power.
