    Phoronix: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti "Maxwell"

    This morning NVIDIA is unveiling their "Maxwell" family of graphics processors that succeed Kepler. With some past generations of NVIDIA hardware we have had to wait a while as Linux users to see how they would work and perform under non-Windows platforms, but I can tell you this morning that the brand new GeForce GTX 750 Ti is already running great on Linux and is delivering terrific results as a sub-$200 mid-range NVIDIA graphics card. Here's the first Ubuntu Linux review of the GeForce GTX 750 Ti Maxwell graphics card.

Some cards have a dual bios feature which may be worth the premium if you are not willing to take a risk on that front.
    Patching the bios is definitely a solution. However, since Forceware 337.12 Beta overclocking is finally possible for Maxwell, Kepler and Fermi from the NVIDIA X server settings.

    Would a Intel Pentium G3420 be ok to start (saving 110 Euro compared with i5) with the possibility to upgrade in the future and keep the 750?
    All I can tell you is WoW is slow and ugly under Wine with my Core i3 550 (dual core + HT @ 3.2GHz) + nvidia GTX 660. The game doesn?t see the capabilities of the GPU correctly and most semi-advanced graphical options are disabled. I can get 60 fps is a mostly empty area (a village in the woods with no other player around) if I set all the options to low. The setting just above gives me 40 fps. Anything above is catastrophic (roughly <= 30 fps, I don?t remember exactly).

    H.264 10bit

    Does anyone know, if Hi10p (H264 10bit) is working on this card?
    Maybe someone has tested it?

    I am trying to install Ubuntu 13.10 and right where the install goes into graphics mode
    my install stops. All I have is a flashing cursor.

    In the process right now of downloading Ubuntu 14.04. If that does not work not sure
    what to do next.

    Thanks

    Finally made it to work on 13.10. I installed with the integrated haswell graphics (nvidia card removed). Then, put the card back in and boot into text mode (with "text nomodeset" parsed to GRUB), download and install the NVIDIA binary driver, blacklist nouveau and reboot. This is what finally made it work for me ... I had to disable the integrated graphics in BIOS, otherwise it kept locking up the computer.

    Hope this helps someone,
    Peter

    Is there any way to overclock those cards without using Windows?
