nVidia Maxwell GTX960 Review

Specifications and Power

nVidia Maxwell GTX960


The base specifications of the GTX960 make for interesting reading. Only 128bit Memory would imply a drop in quality, and 2GB of DDR5 certainly ensures that those with 4K screens need not apply. But to complain about those elements would be entirely missing the point of the GTX960. It's not for people who can afford £700 monitors. It's for people who play at 1080P, a resolution that's comprehensively the most popular resolution available. All the while that PC Gaming is largely driven by console developers and consoles continue to stick largely with 1080P so anything beyond that is fun, but not strictly necessary.

Before we release you to the joys of our full reviews, it's worth bringing this graph up so that you can see how incredibly efficient the Maxwell architecture is, particularly in the GM206 guise it is today. A mere 243W usage at the wall, and that's with our full-fat 4.6GHz Core i7 LGA2011 system underneath it.

Error on graph @18:10 (or AMD Drivers/3DMark went nutz there) :
- Club3D 7970's CF is slower (ie. 9-th place on graph), than one HD7970 card (4-th place from top).

GTX 960 can't be faster than 7970 CF in 3DMark FS <- this result needs updating.Quote
