It has been a bit of a quiet start to the year when it comes to video cards. Both AMD and NVIDIA have chosen not to do much with new models. Today, though, we see NVIDIA expand the GTX 700 series with the release of a new mid-range model: the GTX 750 Ti 2GB.
While AMD chose to launch the whole R series of cards in a short period of time, NVIDIA has taken a different approach. To be completely honest, I'm not sure what's better. In the end, though, if NVIDIA was happy with what the previous generation model was doing at the particular price segment, then there's probably no need to add more models into the mix.
Set to launch with a starting price of $149, the new GTX 750 Ti 2GB is designed to go squarely against the R7 270X 2GB from AMD, which hits at a similar price point. With NVIDIA being quiet in this price bracket for months now, we're really looking forward to see what they bring to the table, especially since we feel that AMD has done such a great job when it comes to pricing the new R series of video cards.
Due to the fact the card is a reference one, we'll simply be moving on from here to the card itself. Once we've done that, it's on to the specifications before we get into the fun stuff: the performance.
