GTX 960 Specifications leaked


It looks like Nvidia's GTX 960 has had it's specs all but confirmed as some of Nvidia's PR slides were leaked to Videocardz. This GPU will have 1024 CUDA cores, half the core count of the GTX 980, a 128-bit memory bus, 2GB or memory and a TDP of just 120W.

In terms of clock speeds the GTX 960 will have the same 1127MHz base clock and 1178MHz boost clock, which is the same as the GTX 970 and have a memory clock of 1753MHz, which is the same as the GTX 980 and GTX 970. The retail price of the GTX 960 is still to be confirmed.

Nvidia see the GTX 960 as a replacement for their ageing GTX 660, offering superior performance at a lower TDP. Nvidia say in the slides below that compared to the GTX 660 the GTX 960 is 2x more efficient, which is a very impressive leap to say the least.

The GTX 960 will be powered by a single 6-pin power connection.

One thing that Nvidia are also saying is that their GM 204 GPU core offers higher overclocking potential than their GM 206 core, which is used in the GTX 980 and GTX 970. Nvidia claim that they can easily be able to boost to 1500MHz, which is a claim which we at OC3D look forward to testing.

 Below are a few pictured of the several GTX 960 models which will be available from in the next few weeks from MSI and KFA2.

Personally I am looking forward to seeing Nvidia's Maxwell architecture come to some mid-range products, hopefully they will be as impressive as it's higher end counterparts.

And I thought that was going to be dead this generation. 2gb is not enough imo.Quote

With 2gb memory and 128bit bus this card is really an overpriced one and simply too weak as a high/mid range vga in 2015 and i can't understand what was the delay for. I thought we get 3/4 gb 256bit vga what is 30% weaker than the 970 for max 200$, but we get this and it will cost more than 255 EURO in my country so it's a fail vga.Quote

I would be interested to know how this falls in with the 760 more than their comparison to the 660. Is the comparison made due to low numbers of 760 sales or something? Or maybe it is only incrementally better (stock) than the 760 but much better on power consumption?Quote

So really, it's worse than a 760 I'm glad I sold my 760 before the 960 hype arrived but I wouldn't be upset if I still owned it. 256-bit bus, 4GB, 1152 Cores and it was dead happy to sit at 1300MHz all day long. This is gonna have to be stupendously efficient or cheap to make any sense at all.

Yeah I'm on a 760 now but this article didn't really make me want to upgrade at all when I read it on Videocardz yesterday and PMed WYP the link Quote
