First GM206-based GTX 750 video card announced

First GM206-based GTX 750 video card announced

Yesterday we spoke of NVIDIA’s intentions to update the popular GeForce GTX 750 graphics card with a newer GPU – in this case the GM206 chip – and the first such card has just popped out in China. The card is manufactured by Gainward – a company with good reputation on the graphics card market – and as expected includes NVIDIA’s GM206-150 GPU.

Apart from the new GPU inside, the new card, which by the way does not have a model name as of now, does not surprise with anything else. It strictly follows NVIDIA’s guidelines and thus the GM206-150 comes with 512 stream processors, making it a cut-down version of the GM206-250 GPU with 768 stream processors in the GTX 950 and a cut-down version of the GM206-300 GPU with 1024 stream processors in the GTX 960 video card. The GPU runs at 1074 MHz (1226 MHz Turbo) and there’s also 1 GB of GDDR5 memory at 5010 MHz effective that is serviced by a 128-bit memory bus. Thanks to the new GPU inside the updated GTX 750 card now supports HDMI 2.0 that allows users to enjoy 4K images at 60 Hz. As a comparison the older GM107 GPU can output 4K images at just 30 Hz. Apart from this the new card comes with DisplayPort 1.2 and DVI-I connectors in the back. Strangely enough the new card consumes 65 watts of power, which somewhat tarnishes the image of the GTX 750 as a very power-efficient card and that’s why the new Gainward product has a 6-pin power connector as well as an 85 mm cooling fan.

There’s no information how much the new card costs and whether we will get more updated GTX 750 cards in the near future so this remains to be seen. In any case it is nice to have a GTX 750 card with GM206 inside instead of the older GM107 GPU so NVIDIA’s efforts are worth it.
