So this would be the fastest performing card that does not require a power connector of some discription?

As far as I know, yes.

Other brands will implement the 6 pin for overclocked versions. The cooler looks like trash in my opinion roll on aftermarket solutions...

Which will add another £10-15 to the price, in which case you may as well get a R9 270...(unless you only have the option of a card that doesn't need a power connector of course)

Can I ask, given your table on the first page, where does the 660 Ti (that I have) fit in?

They will be always expensive on release then drop about £20 a few weeks later... Aftermarket brands will be the same price as the stock card on release...

Sure. The GTX 660 Ti is no longer considered part of the current generation of cards, so it's not in production. However, it technically fits in above the GTX 660, and performs just below the level of the GTX 760, which is a current card :)

This card seems to yield much better results under linux, at least compared to other cards (including nvidia brand). I'm not sure if the same tests perform better in linux compared to windows, but lately that seems to be the case.

Also a seriously overkill heatsink.

I expect it was the smallest one they had :p

Good to see a capable card with NO power connector. Hope we'll see some REAL single slot version.

Wow. Evga ftw has core clock of 1189, boosting to 1268. Ridiculous! This all bodes very well for higher end cards. AMD best have some very big improvements over their current architecture, but i have a feeling everyone in their HQ just gulped very, very hard.

I could very well be interested in this card.

I love the efficiency of it!

Holy **** hadn't realized how far the latest cards have become since my GTX480. Bested by low-end budget card! Nice of you to have it (480) included in the graphs.

Time for an upgrade methinks, atleast when the higher end cards hit the shelves.

I know what you mean, it is a little irritating. I own 2 overclocked HD5750s and they're not going to be able to keep up much longer. Together, they can play just about any last-gen game at full detail (without AA) at 1080p but I don't even think slapping a 3rd card in there will make my current system keep up with newer games. I think it's a little too early for me to decide to upgrade though - right now the 750Ti has the best performance-per-watt of any GPU and by a large margin. I want to see it's PPW ratio on more high-end cards.

But I feel things have been a little too calm in the GPU world lately. Regardless of the bias people have for each company, AMD and nvidia are pretty head to head in performance, depending on what tests you're looking at. We haven't had a big change in a long time. GPUs aren't getting much faster or more efficient lately - the changes feel very incremental. I feel like something big has to happen soon.

Wow, those are some pretty sweet numbers from such a low wattage card, plumped for a 650ti for a recent build for a friend. He was interested in playing Nvidia optimised titles and it was the only card in his price bracket. This card will be ideal for future friends and family budget builds : )

/this

I'd really like to see a single-slot GTX750, preferably in low-profile ;)

Totally kills the AMD R7-250, which I was considering for my next mITX-system and isn't that much more expensive either.

Can I also ask if you have an ASUS GTX 750 Ti DirectCUII coming any time soon for review?

Hmm. Well I must say the 750 looks very impressive however I do have my reservations. I used to own a pair of 480s and when clocked pretty high they could nip at the heels of a stock 7970 (one not both !). I know things have moved on and I know that these new cards are pretty sweet but unless you're in it for the power savings I think the 480 would still be the better card.

I must say though the power use is pretty amazing. Shame Nvidia have put such a horrid looking cooler on it.

I wish you guys had put an 8800 ultra in the comparison, I really need to convince my mother to upgrade a little bit !

Also. No SLI, lame :(

Something big this way comes: TSMC 20nm.

No plans for it atm - what has you interested in that model in particular? I haven't looked at much of the board partner range but from what I have seen most of them are overclocking close to or to the maximum speed you can set, with essentially zero power/noise/temperature penalty - that's what I think is most awesome about these.

We only included 480 numbers as Nvidia mentioned that performance should be on par or close and we wanted to put that to the test since we had one lying around. It's still the faster card, but efficiency has certainly come a long way!

Mainly because ASUS is my preferred choice of manufacturer these days for motherboard, GPUs, etc... even my laptop is an ASUS these days and I recommend them often. I just wanted to know what their more basic DirectCUII cooler was like in comparison but as you mentioned, it seems that there is very little need for an advanced cooler for these models and so the cheapest partner is pretty much the same as any other.

At the kind of power draw of the 750 and Ti, it would be nice to see some passively cooled cards for use in HTPC and the like.

No R7 265 to compare to? That is the real test. From looking at other benchmarks the 265 comes very close to the 270 so I think the 260 is going to be the better card for the money. So unless you need a card sans power connector, the 265 is the way to go.
