Rumor: Nvidia set to show off its GeForce GTX 960 at CES 2015
Currently there are only two available Nvidia 900 series video cards, the GTX 980 and GTX 970. But according to the Swedish website Sweclockers the upcoming latest and greatest of Nvidia will be the GeForce GTX 960 set to be presented at the CES (Consumer Electronic Show) in Las Vegas to be held from January 6. Its official launch will occur a few weeks later.
The new graphics card from Nvidia, GeForce GTX 960, would be based on a new core, the GM206. The specifications of the GTX 960 are still unknown but could incorporate a 10 SMM (Maxwell Streaming Multiprocessors ), which would form a total of 1,280 CUDA Cores.
As for memory, Sweclockers stalks of two possible configurations, 2 GB of GDDR5 memory interface with 3 GB GDDR5 128 or a 192-bit bus. This contrasts with the information we heard a month ago, as appeared by a word in the Zauba database that the GTX 960 would have 4 GB of GDDR5 memory and have a 256-bit bus, the same bus that employ the GTX 980 and GTX 970. Given the date of this delivery, late September, it could be an engineering sample with a different specification to the final version.
It appears that we will have to wait until CES 2015 to know for sure, this latest card will be set as a medium range video card and its price should be lower than the GTX 970 with a suggested price tag of $250 and $300.
