It’s no longer a mystery to us that NVIDIA will soon release a certain NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 graphics card after the release of the GTX 980 and GTX 970. But the question is when will it be released or launched and what are its features and specifications. Sweclockers.com, a few days ago, has revealed some juicy information about the whereabouts of the GeForce GTX 960. The upcoming graphics card is expected to be revealed at an event this coming January 2015. Check out more information below.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 Is Coming
The upcoming GeForce GTX 960 is expected to be revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The said event will start from January 6, but expect that this will only be a preview of the GTX 960. The actual release date or launch date might be set a few days or weeks after the event. Reports are saying that it could be released by the end of January 2015.
According to other reports, the GeForce GTX 960 is expected to be based on the GM206 chip and will feature 4GB of GDDR5 memory running on a 256-bit memory interface. But according to Sweclockers report, it will have a 2GB GDDR5 memory running on a 128-bit bus. That’s actually half the specs that other media are reporting.
Either way, the GeForce GTX 960 is said to replace the GTX 760 and will perform on par (or probably slightly better) than the GTX 770. As early as today, people are already expecting that the GTX 960 will have a good price/performance ratio. I’m guessing that it will be priced at around $200-$250 USD.
The only thing that we are waiting right now is what will be AMD’s next move? I’m pretty sure they have something that could probably wipe out NVIDIA’s lineup, like the certain “Captain Jack” that was leaked a few weeks ago. But since it’s all rumors and leaks, we have to take all information with a grain of salt.
