After a few rumors about the Maxwell chipset and its release date in February, we now hear about statistics regarding the GeForce GTX 750 Ti suggesting that NVIDIA’s first Maxwell GPU is slower than the current GTX 660, according to WCCF‘s article. Take the news with a grain of salt though, nothing official has been released regarding the Maxwell GPU, nor its performance. However, nobody can confirm, nor deny its authenticity.
We see the GeForce GTX 750 Ti is around 10 to 15 percent slower than the GTX 660. A bit of a good news comes from WCCF, stating that the benchmarks were made using Single Precision format, while the new Maxwell GPU is known for its Double Precision GPU. Also, it makes no sense for NVIDIA to release a graphics card which is slower than its previous series.
Whether the benchmarks are valid or not, it remains to be seen. In the meantime, we are awaiting more official information about the Maxwell GPU and possibly some more benchmarks of the GTX 750 Ti after its release. Maybe we will even see the GTX 750 Ti perform in the new PCMark 8 that was released a few days ago.
