Palit has built the world's first passively cooled GTX 750 (Ti). Why has this taken so long?
We've been wondering for a while when we would be seeing passively cooled GTX 750 (Ti) cards, and it seems our innermost desires are being fulfilled. Palit released its GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti KalmX series graphics cards.
The GTX 750 and 750 Ti are both very efficient, low-power cards, and it would just make sense for someone to make a passively cooled version. We know that it is possible because we've done it ourselves. Palit accomplishes the task with its KalmX cards, which are built with a large fanless heat sink.
Both of the cards are clocked at 1020 MHz, with GPU Boost clocks able to go up to 1185 MHz. Memory for the 750 KalmX is clocked at 5010 MHz, while the 750 Ti KalmX memory is clocked at 5500 MHz. Both cards carry 2 GB of memory running over a 128-bit memory interface. The performance difference between the two is largely derived from the difference in the core count. The GTX 750 Ti carries 640 cores while the GTX 750 has only 512.
No exact word on pricing yet, but the GTX 750 cards are not all that expensive, and we don't expect anything out of the ordinary for these.
