im curious how the gigabyte windforce 750ti I ordered for my wife is gonna do. She tried to steal one of my 290s to play low requirement games @ 1080p and I wasn't having it.

note that the minimum is still 42% (even though the fanspeed is reduced)

I had quick look at the thread on the EVGA forum thread where this was originally posted and the EVGA rep subsequently posted this:
Quote:
it is not possible the lower the percentage number, but keep in mind that number is not really tied to any indication of how loud a card is... EX: 42% on one card may be a different RPM than on another one.

so what does the percentage represent? something relative to maximum voltage? or PWM frequency?

I'm wondering the same thing for most of the brands with 750 Ti: are the minimum fan speeds lower on other cards? What I have in mind is to try an aftermarket cooler with an extremely low RPM fan, one of the ones that are quoted as having a minimum RPM of 300 or less, but obviously it would be futile if none of the cards fan controllers will let the fans go that low a speed.

Seville Orange , I'm pretty sure it's relative to max RPM of the fan. i.e. for EVGA GTX 760 SC ACX:
43% = 1230
70% = 2010
100% = 2850


also it seems EVGA stealth launched an ACX cooled reference board (or one that isn't FTW)

Thanks. Perhaps EVGA isn't the best choice for getting an ultra low fan speed. MSI maybe? but I ruled out the Gaming edition as it looks like the PCB is over 220mm long (max 200mm would be even better as it would widen the choice of usable mini-ITX cases)

This is a fun article and some useful info - I wondered about the Arctic Cooling offerings, S1 Plus, L2 Plus and Mono Plus, but Tom's experiment notes the hole spacing on the reference board is different than previous GPUs. I'm guessing it would also rule out Scythe's Setsugen and Thermalright Shamen unless the hole widening as suggested by Tom's is applied. Would any of the non-reference 750 Ti boards have the wider 'standard' hole spacing?

I don't like NV prices but it should be pointed out that unless you're outside of North America / Canada, nvidia has far better prices overall for the time being. But, again, if you feel compelled to whine about pricing, by all means buy AMD. AMD charges less for a reason IMO - I used AMD for many years, particularly from the 5870 to 7970. What I found is that their software is horribly bad in terms of quality and polish compared to nvidia, consider that they took over 2 years to fix outstanding frame pacing issues for eyefinity and CF. That's freaking pathetic. But that's the norm for AMD, their software sucks - experiences with the beta Mantle driver are a testament to this. After a while I just got sick of it and went NV because really.............taking 6+ months to fix software bugs is ridiculous.

The truth is, there's no perfect GPU company right now.

Here are my experiences:
  • Nvidia pricing in general depends on where you live. Sometimes the difference can be huge - I have heard of cases where AMD had roughly a 50% better price to performance ratio in some nations (SE Asia).
  • I have had issues in the past with both companies drivers. Both have given me their share of issues for SLI/CF respectively as well. A lot of people insist that Nvidia sucks less than AMD - from experience, that's not always true. It's not uncommon for me to see CF systems scaling better than SLI systems at times.
  • Nvidia right now has been very anti-overclocking with their "Project Greenlight". There is speculation that we don't have an MSI 780Ti Lightning out because of MSI's actions with the 680 Lightning. Whatever its other flaws, AMD has not been like this.
  • We don't really know what AMD has up the pipeline. Right now, my concern is that we're about to see a repeat of the 8800 GTX vs 2900 XT, where well, the Nvidia card was a lot more efficient and a lot more powerful. That's bad for us as consumers, since Nvidia will jack the prices up. They known there's a market for $1000 gaming GPUs now. Throw in their OC-hostile policies and you've got a bad situation for gamers, compounded perhaps by Bitcoin. That said, AMD does have a history of turning things around - the 4870 is a testament to that.
  • Historically AMD has had worse coolers than Nvidia on their cards, but this is only an issue for reference. Seeing as my plan is to buy a Lightning (or another higher end custom PCB), this is a non-issue.



Really at this point, what we need to see is Maxwell scaled up to a 550mm^2 chip and what AMD has to respond (if anything).

Well, as it so happened, since the last time I posted in this thread, my old monitor died and I had to head out and get a cheap one on sale. An LG 22EN33T, to be specific. So, is there anyone in here who's bought the 750 Ti? How is it at 1080p? I'm probably going to be buying one later this month.

Don't expect it max everything at that resolution. But you'll get around 40FPS with motion blur and AA disabled.

PS: I don't own that card. Kinda wrong of me to reply to your query. Sorry.
