In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti Asus M2D1 Edition.

The GTX 750 has a 185 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 550 Ti. This results in the GTX 750 providing 5.9 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 750 has a 185 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 550 Ti, but the GTX 550 Ti has 8 more Render Output Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the GTX 550 Ti exhibits a 4.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 750. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 750 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 550 Ti, and so the GTX 750 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 550 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 550 Ti Asus M2D1 Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 550 Ti has 16.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 550 Ti is slightly better than the GTX 750.

The GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 550 Ti Asus M2D1 Edition has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 804 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 550 Ti is 346. The GTX 750 having 458 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 750 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 550 Ti.

The GTX 750 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 550 Ti. This means that the GTX 750 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 550 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 550 Ti Asus M2D1 Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 750.
This edition comes with a custom cooling cooling solution which by itself will allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 750 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Furthermore, it comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was raised from 1020MHz to 1085MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1163MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was increased to 1275MHz.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 6% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus this card is slightly faster than Radeon R7 260X.
GeForce GTX 550 Ti Asus M2D1 Edition is a special edition of the upper-middle-class GeForce GTX 550 Ti. See the standard edition's page for more information.
The only new feature is a new cooling system which doesn't affect performance directly and so GeForce GTX 550 Ti Asus M2D1 Edition's gaming performance is exactly like the standard's. Gamers will want to buy the TOP (over-clocked version) for superior performance.
Some modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution but the largest part will have to be played with a 720p resolution to be played optimally.
This Graphics Card needs to be paired with a decent Quad Core CPU.
