GeForce GTX 750 Ti Benchmarked: Slower Than GTX 660?

We've read some reports around the web lately about a rumored new Nvidia GPU codenamed Maxwell. The word on the street is that it'll be officially launched as GeForce GTX 750 Ti, but still be on the 28 nm process.

Little is known at this point, but another trickle of unconfirmed information comes from Chinese site Coolaler, comparing the supposed GTX 750 Ti to a GTX 660:

    The power usage could be way lower

    Can't think of a good reason for this thing over, say, an R9 270...I love Nvidia, but you really do pay for the brand sometimes...

    I have a feeling that Maxwell is going to be a bunch of same performance GPUs with a much much lower power consumption. Good thing I didnt wait and grabbed a 780

    Same performance for less power is great, but it makes it hard to justify buying a new card. Sell me more performance at the same price, no matter how you get it, and then I'll be interested. I have a 460 GTX that runs everything I throw at it.... give me a real reason to upgrade!

    Sure. With the next gen just around the corner the price on the 780 might rise.

    Hardly an incentive to buy the card, if a 660 out performs it.Yes it make take less power.And if that is all the GTX 750 Ti has to offer then I suspect it will do very poor, unless priced bellow the cost of a 660 card at it`s current price. Avoided.

    hopefully this bench is of a slower pre-release sample. I was hoping for something at or a little ahead of the 660/570 performance range with 2GB of ram somewhere between $150-200.... but instead we are looking at something slower and more than $200?

    I love nVidia, but I think I will be upgrading to AMD this go around. Would be my first AMD/ATI card in over 10 years!

    So Maxwell is the Nvidia version of Haswell...

    Assuming the story has merit....

    The GTX 750Ti card is doing more with less. The GTX 660 doesn't blow it away in those benchmarks. In actual gameplay, I would argue the cards would perform very near each other. It is an apples to oranges comparison though. One card has a generation advantage with a power grade disadvantage (750) and the other is the opposite (660). The architecture helps but as with many things in life, brute force can't be discounted.

    These numbers would be even further apart if they were testing a non-Ti version of the 750.
