Rumor: NVIDIA to Release Low-End GeForce GT 930 in Q1 2016
According to a recent report, NVIDIA has plans to release a low-end card dubbed GeForce GT 930 sometime during the Q1 of 2016. The report further adds that despite being a low-end card, GeForce GT 930 will not be based on a single GPU, but will rely on different SKUs using various GPUs.
Currently, there is no concrete release date as to when NVIDIA plans to release the said graphics card, but there are good chances that it will launch alongside the NVIDIA’s another rumored graphics card dubbed GTX 960 Ti as a counter to AMD Radeon’s R9 380X.
The GeForce GT 930 will make use of three distinct SKUs with the first two variants being the same as GeForce GT 630 and GeForce GT 730 using the Fermi GF108 and Kepler GK208 cores respectively. The third variant, on the other hand, will use the GK108 GPU core:
Finally, the report states that these cards are not meant for gaming and are only meant to boost HD movie performance, pictures, and other things. That certainly does not meant that these cards will not be able to handle some of the last-gen titles, but you should not expect a solid and consistent performance.
