NVIDIA’s first-generation “Maxwell” architecture implements a number of architectural enhancements designed to extract even more performance per watt consumed. The first Maxwell-based GPU is codenamed “GM107” and designed for use in power-limited environments like notebooks and small form factor (SFF) PCs. These SFF systems are often used for gaming and home entertainment, with the most recent example being Valve Software’s recently announced Steam Machines initiative. The first graphics card that is based on the GM107 GPU is the GeForce GTX 750 Ti. Because of GM107’s remarkable architectural efficiency, at 1080p resolution a GeForce GTX 750 Ti will frequently match the performance of our flagship GPU from four years ago, the GeForce GTX 480, but with only a 60W TDP, consumes a fourth of the power.
