The Nvidia GeForce Partner Program makes a good point about fair branding for companies that work hard on designing products, in this case, their GPUs. On the flip side, it can really lock down manufacturers from having freedom to choose AMD GPUs for gaming brands, limiting consumer choice.
Today marks the launch of Nvidia's newest generation of graphics cards, and th Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming is the specific model we're looking at today. It's latest in the company's popular model series, coming with an updated version of its namesake cooler. We've been impressed in the past with Windforce graphics cards, and we suspect this new one will be no different. It's not an entirely fresh look, constructed in metal rather than plastic, but does come with an aggressive factory overclock and a few new surprises in store.
NVIDIA and Falcon Northwest have partnered together to build a one-of-a-kind gaming PC. Nvidia is now auctioning this amazing system to raise funds for the Philip Scholz Memorial Foundation, honoring an NVIDIA brother who was tragically killed earlier this year when he heroically removed an individual from train tracks and was hit. The Foundation bearing Phil’s name provides scholarships to needs-based youth and promotes outdoor physical activities involving his favorite pastime, baseball. This amazing PC uses all the latest technology to deliver absolutely raging performance in a cool, quiet platform. It starts with the award-winning GeForce GTX Titan Black – the world’s fastest single GPU. And it includes Intel’s latest Core i7 CPU, the 4770K, running on an ASUS z87 Maximus motherboard loaded with 16GB of GSKILL DDR3 memory. The storage system is based on two 1TB M50 SSDs from Crucial. And it’s all wrapped up in the most impressive chassis available today – the Tiki — custom designed in NVIDIA green, with a laser cutout window so everyone can see the beast that lives within. This entire system is fully warranted by Falcon Northwest. To learn more about Phil and the way he changed those around him, see this story from San Jose Mercury News.

We recently had the opportunity to meet with Nvidia to hear some of the upcoming newly minted features of their popular GeForce Experience software, and Nvidia is promising even better features to reach a wider audience, and are now calling this their GFE 2.0, presumably the new and improved version. Notebooks are getting the love this time around, receiving the full treatment like the enthusiast desktop brethren, and mobile gaming is looking to get a boost as well with Nvidia's new Gamestream. As an added bonus, we've got some new drivers from Nvidia as well, version 337.50, which promises performance increases. Not ones to blindly believe the claims, we get a GTX 780 on the bench and see what these drivers can do.
Today we're specifically looking at the Gigabyte GTX 750 Ti Windforce, a budget-oriented card that comes with a factory overclock out of the box and a cooler design that promises very low temperatures, while looking to trounce AMD's R7 260X not only in performance, but also power efficiency. Let's take a closer look and get it on the bench to see if real world tests can fulfill Nvidia's aspirations.
