Priced at $150, GTX 950 is Rumored to Launch in Mid-August
According to a recent report, Nvidia is looking to release its newest mid-range graphics card sometime during mid-August. Dubbed as Nvidia GeForce GTX 950, it is said to rival AMD’s Radeon R7 370.
GTX 950 utilizes Nvidia’s GM-206 GPU which is also found in the GTX 960. This card, however, lacks 25 per cent of the CUDA cores found on the GTX 960 – hence the total core count for GTX 950 sits at 768 instead of 1,024 on the GTX 960.
Coming to clock speeds, the GTX 950 clocks somewhere between 1,150 MHz and 1,250 MHz which can be boosted to something between 1,350 MHz and 1,450 MHz as compared to 1,178 on the GTX 960.
The card will be powered by a single 8-pin PCIe connector and will boast 2GB GDDR5 memory. Priced at around $150, the GTX 950 is said to rival AMD’s Radeon R7 370 which is also available at the same price, but boasts 4GB GDDR5 memory. It is also being reported that the new card will offer decent performance at 1080p resolution as well as GameWorks technology for life-like visuals.
Those who are unable to get their hands on a GTX 760 for $250, GTX 660 for $230, or even a GTX 960 for $200; this card seems like a decent option to enjoy full HD gaming.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 is rumoured to launch on Aug. 17, 2015.
