NVIDIA today is putting out three new cards for games to pick up. First up are the GeForce GTX 750 and the GeForce GTX 750 Ti. These two cards are built on the new Maxwell architecture, which takes what they've learned in producing mobile chipsets and bringing it to the desktop side.

The two new cards offer more performance per watt so you get faster gaming that uses less power. The GeForce GTX 750 Ti is a two slot card, but with the new architecture there's no need for a power plug. To be able to deliver good performance without extra power to the card is pretty amazing. The specs for the GeForce GTX 750 TI is as follows:

 GeForce GTX 750 Ti
Streaming Processors: 1
CUDA Cores: 640
Texture Units: 40
ROP Units 16
Base Clock: 1020 MHz
Boost Clock: 1085 MHz
Total Video Memory: 2046MB GDDR5
Memory Clock: 5400 MHz
Total Memory Bandwidth: 86.4 GB/s
TDP: 60 W

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti will cost about $149.99. 

Now, if you want to spend a little less, there's the GeForce GTX 750. It's got less CUDA cores, uses less power, and comes in a 1GB memory configuration as opposed to the default 2GB configuration of the GeForce GTX 750 Ti.

 GeForce GTX 750 
Streaming Processors: 1
CUDA Cores: 512
Texture Units: 32
ROP Units 16
Base Clock: 1020 MHz
Boost Clock: 1085 MHz
Total Video Memory: 1024MB GDDR5
Memory Clock: 5000 MHz
Total Memory Bandwidth: 80 GB/s
TDP: 55 W

The GeForce GTX 750 will retail for $119.99.

Then the big daddy is the new GeForce GTX Titan Black. It's a a little refresh over the same Titan and has the same architecture. The differences are 2880 CUDA cores compared to 2688 for the Titan. Also, the Titan Black has a Base Clock of 889 MHz versus 837 MHz for the Titan. Finally, the Black has a boost of 980 MHz versus 876 MHz. It will still cost about $1000 and it will be the most powerful card as of today.
