Nvidia’s first desktop release of the Maxwell series appears from previous rumors to be the GTX 750 Ti. If the leaks from a Chinese tech website are accurate, we’ll be seeing the GTX 750 Ti perform anywhere from between 10 to 15 percent slower than the GTX 660.
There aren’t many game benchmarks to be seen, only Final Fantasy 14 and Biohazard (Resident Evil) 5. 3D mark FireStrike, CloudGate, along with Valley FPS do make a showing allowing us a more accurate gauge. Unfortunately there aren’t any details to the rest of the right that was supposedly running these benchmarks.
If this accurate, then it shows that at least for the lower spec parts, Maxwell isn’t going to be a giant leap in gaming performance. There’s no details shown off in any screenshots revealing specs of the hardware (for example, CUDA core count, memory / clock frequencies of the GTX 750 Ti) so it’s hard to know if this is genuine or not. There’s always the question of how ‘smart’ it would be of Nvidia to debut their Maxwell architecture with such low performance.
It is important to remember that the Maxwell architecture is supposedly going to bring in things such as an ARM CPU, Virtual Memory Addressing along with several other new features. So it’s possible the architecture is focused on lower power and better feature sets. It’s also possible that the user in question isn’t using an updated driver, therefore we’re seeing far worse results than we should be. Finally of course, there’s always the chance that the benchmark is fake.
