NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 Ti Specs Leaked, Will Launch in the Coming Weeks
NVIDIA is reportedly ready and preparing their new high end graphics, the GeForce GTX 960 Ti, for launch in the coming weeks, according to a report from the Chinese website Benchlife.info. The upcoming graphics card is set to take on AMD’s recently released Radeon R9 380X, which surpasses its NVIDIA counterpart currently.
The GTX 960 Ti will naturally be built on the MX 2.0 architecture. The variant of the Maxwell succeeds the Kepler architecture and is manufactured with the same 28nm technology, though it has an extremely large L2 cache allowing NVIDIA to produce graphics cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without taking a hit on the overall performance.
The new card is said to equip a GPU codenamed GM204-200-KD which has 12 SM activated and thus offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs and 64 ROPs. On the memory side, the card packs 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM across a 256-bit interface. The memory clock operates at 1753MHz.
As for power consumption, the GTX 960 Ti features a rated board TDP of 140W, so requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector. The product is set up for DirectX 12 upto feature level 12_1, and offers support for SLI, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.
Note that the afore-mentioned specs are technically a rumor, so should be taken with a grain of salt. Also, it could be some time before we hear anything official, but we’re keeping an eye out for more details on the topic and let you know as soon as they roll out.
