Nvidia Refreshing GTX 750 With New GM206 Chips
Despite being one of the earlier graphics cards of Nvidia’s previous generation of GPUs, GTX 750 and its Ti variant are still favored by many gamers who want budget mid-tier gaming and don’t really care about 1080p resolution or solid 60 frames per second while also maxing out every game detail. Not only is GTX 750 a cheap card but with its low power consumption it also saves on the other costs.
According to a report by HWbattle.com, the GM107-300 chipset on which GTX 750 was based on is now officially out of production which means there won’t be any newer GTX 750 cards being created, at least not the ones built on this chipset. This doesn’t however mean that Nvidia is ready to abandon one of its most popular GPUs just yet.
There have been online listings that seem to indicate that Nvidia is in fact refreshing the GPU, which is pretty common in this age. New models of GTX 750 are being created which are built on the new GM206-150 GPU chipset.
The specifications of these refreshed models are expected to be pretty the same as the previous ones although this time they might even support some other features such as ShadowPlay and DirectX12.
The online listings are all from Chinese manufacturers as of now and since there has been no official word from Nvidia, it is still unclear if this refresh is true or not. Hopefully, Nvidia will announce it soon and the GPUs will make their way to western markets as well.
