NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 960 is here and it is really going to hit that sweet spot for gaming when it comes to the price / performance ratio. MSI of course have released a few different GTX 960 models (4 currently) and today we will be taking a look at their highest performance part the GTX 960 Gaming 2G. This card of course falls in MSI’s very popular gaming line and comes with a factory overclock bringing the core clock up to 1216 MHz and the boost clock up to 1279 MHz. The card also ships with MSI’s new Twin Frozr V cooling solution that has many new improvements that we will go over in detail. Being part of the Gaming Series this card uses MSI’s Military Class components and also comes with a great software suite. Will this be the GTX 960 for you? Read on as we find out!
NVIDIA has officially announced the GeForce GTX 960 graphics card. This will be NVIDIA’s mid-range offering in their 900 series, based on the GM206 silicon, with 2.9 billion transistors, a 294 mm² die-area, and 2 GB of GDDR5 running across a 128-bit wide memory bus.
Well it looks like the guys over at VideoCardz have revealed the full details of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 960 and have provided test scores before the card launches on Thursday. We have the full run-down for you so if you are looking to pick this card up when it launches read on!
Well here are the first known shots of NVIDIA’s next-gen flagship graphics card, the GeForce GTX Titan X. This card is powered by the brand new 28 nm GM200 silicon, which we have heard may feature 3072 CUDA cores, is based on the Maxwell architecture, has a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, NVIDIA’s latest memory bandwidth tech, 96 ROPs and 12 GB of memory.
To start the card will be based on NVIDIA’s 28 nm GM206 silicon. It will pack in 1024 CUDA cores that are based on the Maxwell architecture, 64 TMUs, possibly 32 ROPs, and has 2 GB of memory across a 128-bit wide GDDR5 interface. While you may think that the bus seems narrow, NVIDIA will be using lossless texture compression technology that will effectively improve bandwidth utilization.
Our original report on the launch of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 said it would launch a couple of weeks after CES 2015 and now we have a real date. According to a recent report by Hermitage Akihabara the card will launch January 22, 2015.
It looks like NVIDIA will not be waiting for the 20 nm fab process for its next big GPU. Riding on the success of the GM204 silicon, the next enthusiast-segment GM200 silicon will be based on the 28 nm silicon fab process. NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan II could be based off this silicon.
NVIDIA’s GeForce 900 Series has been a long time coming and gamers have anxiously awaited it. NVIDIA has been using the Kepler architecture for quite sometime and when Maxwell was introduced last year we only saw the entry-level and budget friendly cards. When we finally got word that we would be seeing performance segment Maxwell cards let’s just say we got excited. Today we will be looking at our first review of a GeForce 900 series card and it comes in the form of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming. For starters the GeForce GTX 970 has 1664 CUDA cores, 104 texture units, 64 ROPs and packs 4GB of GDDR5 memory. Normally this card would have speeds of 1050 MHz core and 1178 MHz boost, but Gigabyte has overclocked their version to speeds of 1178 MHz core and 1329 MHz boost. On top of that Gigabyte has implemented their latest WindForce 3X cooler on the card to give you the best cooling possible. Let’s get this card on the bench and see what it can do!
Coloful has launched their flagship GeForce GTX 980 iGame graphics card. This card come with one of the best cooling solutions and most muscular VRM solutions we have seen on a GeForce GTX 980.
