Nvidia to Launch A Low-powered Version of GTX 950 Next Month for $129
Rumor has it that Nvidia is planning to launch a low-powered version of the GeForce GTX 950, that will directly replace the already ageing GTX 750.
According to a report from VideoCardz, this new offering from Nvidia will be called the GTX 950 SE. Interestingly, it’s been around four years since the company last used the SE suffix for a graphics card, i.e., the GTX 560 SE. Graphics cards with an “SE” branding are usually low powered iterations of the original cards. So there are chances that Nvidia might go for the LP (low powered) suffix instead.
Spec-wise, the GTX 950 SE is rumored to built on the Maxwell 2.0 architecture and use a GM206 GPU core, which is similar to the original GTX 950.
The graphics card will feature 640 CUDA cores and 2GB GDDR5 memory standard; however, details about the clock speed, memory frequency and bandwidth are not confirmed yet. But they would nearly be identical to those of the GTX 750 Ti, the report suggests.
The GTX 950 SE will support major technologies from Nvidia, as well as the upcoming DirectX 12 and Vulkan APIs. The graphics card is expected to launch next month for a price of $129 US.
