In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 57 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 550 Ti. This results in the GTX 750 Ti providing 10.1 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 Ti has a 57 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 Ti. As a result, the GTX 550 Ti exhibits a 6.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 750 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 750 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GTX 550 Ti, and so the GTX 750 Ti 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 GTX 750 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 550 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GTX 550 Ti has 12.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 550 Ti is slightly better than the GTX 750 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 Ti is 959 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 550 Ti is 374. The GTX 750 Ti having 585 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 750 Ti delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 550 Ti.

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

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition requires 60 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
This edition comes with a custom cooling cooling solution which by itself will allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 750 Ti 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 1033MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1110MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was left untouched.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is only around 1% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti and thus Radeon HD 7850 and GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition are still faster.
GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition is a special edition of the GeForce GTX 550 Ti. See the page of the standard version for more information.
The features include better cooling and an increase on the core-clock from 900MHz to 975MHz.
Benchmarks indicate the performance is 4.5% better when compared to the reference card.
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.
