The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 is a great value graphics card for $120 that delivers great mid-range performance while its performance-per-Watt is exceptional. If you don't mind using binary graphics drivers, the GTX 750 based upon NVIDIA's new Maxwell architecture with the GM107 is worth checking out.

Yesterday I delivered a full review on the eVGA GeForce GTX 750 graphics card that sells for $119 USD and offers most of the benefits of the slightly more powerful GeForce GTX 750 Ti on Linux.

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 750 Is A Great $120 Linux Graphics Card


The eVGA GTX 750 Linux review featured a comparison against nearly two dozen AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards on Ubuntu Linux. There were also thermal results, power consumption data, and performance-per-Watt graphs when looking at the OpenGL graphics and OpenCL compute performance. Check out yesterday's article if you haven't already.

The purpose of bringing the eVGA GTX 750 up again on Phoronix is that I've ran a few more benchmarks of the graphics card and they're publicly available via OpenBenchmarking.org for those that wish to run their own side-by-side comparisons against it in a fully automated and reproducible way from test downloading and setup to test execution and analysis, all via the Phoronix Test Suite.

The extra eVGA GeForce GTX 750 1GB graphics card results to checkout include:

1402280-PL-GTX750IOQ20 - The GTX 750 at a variety of resolutions when running ioquake3 games.

1402285-PL-NVIDIAGTX12 - Many X.Org / 2D performance benchmarks of the GTX 750 Maxwell on Ubuntu.

1402282-PL-NVIDIAGEF55 - Some extra OpenCL benchmarks of the GTX 750 GM107 graphics card.

1402282-PL-EVGAGEFOR71 - Plenty of GpuTest results for this eVGA graphics card.
