NVIDIA GeForce GT 740 spotted check out latest details

Based on new low-end GPU NVIDIA sighted in the Chinese graphics cards market.

A few weeks ago it was discovered that Nvidia is preparing a new low-end GPU called GeForce GTX 745, but definitely not the only GeForce 700 Series low end GPU, because the company also enlists its new GeForce GT 740.

Even the specifications of the new GeForce GT 740 Nvidia is unknown, but is rumored to like GeForce GTX 745 will be based on the graphics core Maxwell GM108 (384 shader processors), but will have a lower frequency rate of  operation, which would make an interesting choice for overclockers (if confirmed, would be theoretically possible to carry the same operating frequency of his older brother).


According to Wccftech, the card should be good on energy with only 75W:

That said, the pictures are of the Galaxy GT 740 and the Gainward GT 740 Zhao Edition. One of them requires a 6 Pin External connector which you can clearly see in the pictures while the other one does not require so. That is an interesting case but in all probability the connector is only there to provide stability at higher clocks. It does mean that the Power of the chip is equal to or less than 75W since that is the max a PCI-E can provide. That doesn’t necessarily prove that its Maxwell in any way ofcourse but does provide an interesting coincidence. Finally the one specification that is actually confirmed is the memory and the bus width, Which is 1 GB GDDR5 and 128 bit respectively. The Galaxy Geforce GT 740 will feature DVI-D, DVI-I, HDMI and Display Port interface while the Gainward counterpart will feature a DVI-D, VGA and HDMI ports.


Both cards are equipped with 1GB of GDDR5 memory with 128-bit bus (perhaps there are products with 2GB of graphics memory and even cheaper versions equipped with DDR3 memory).
