Nvidia has surprisingly updated it’s older generation GTX 750 graphics card with a new architecture. Although slightly dated, the GTX 750 remains a favourite amongst gamers due to its low-power usage and small form factor. The architectural update to the graphics card brings a host of features that previously weren’t available on the GTX 750.
Previously, the GTX 750 was using the GM107 Maxwell chip. Now it’s reported that the new GTX 750 will be using the second generation of the Maxwell architecture: the GM206-150-A1 – more commonly known as Maxwell 2.0. However, its worth noting that the new architecture for the GTX 750 won’t be a full version of Maxwell 2.0. Instead, it will be a cut-down version.
With the addition of the Maxwell 2.0 architecture, the GTX 750 will be getting additional features such as: HDMI 2.o, Nvidia’s Dynamic Super Resolution, third generation Delta Colour Compression, Multi-Pixel Programming Sampling and a variety of other features. Surprisingly, the update to the GTX 750 will also bring in support for DirectX 12.
Bare in mind that Nvidia hasn’t officially said anything about the update to its graphics card. Currently, the listings for the updated graphics card are only available from manufactures in China. Until Nvidia makes an official announcement regarding this update, it may seem like the updated version of the GTX 750 won’t be coming to Malaysia any time soon.
