In Pictures: GeForce GTX 750 Ti PCB

Not long ago we reported that the GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti graphics cards from Nvidia would be based on the GM107 GPU, and while this is still seemingly correct, we were wrong about something.

Previously, we reported that the GTX 750 Ti might not have any PCIe power connectors; this is seemingly wrong. A post on DG's Nerdy Story has revealed the rear of the PCB of a GTX 750 Ti, which clearly shows solder points for a single 6-pin PCIe connector. The first image shows this clearly, while the second image clearly shows the GTX 750 Ti text on a sticker on the graphics card.

Having said that, it is very possible that this was not a reference card. Many manufacturers are likely to opt for equipping their cards with 6-pin PCIe power connectors anyway, which is understandable. The reference card is said to feature a power envelope of 75 W, which is right on the limit of what the PCIe port can provide. In order to support factory or user overclocking, it will be safer to have a margin of error. 

As with any pre-release rumor, consider these images with some skepticism. The solder points aren't shown very clearly, and only the back of the card is pictured. It's plausible that Nvidia could be working on another product using this PCB requiring more power than a PCI Express slot can provide (75 W).

It is unclear whether the GTX 750 will or will not have a 6-pin power connector at this point.

The GTX 750 Ti is expected to make its debut on February 18, along with the GTX 750.
