GTX 950 Specifications Leaked - Rumor

GTX 950 Specifications Leaked

 

It looks like Nvidia has plans to release a new mid-range GPU using their Maxwell architecture, the GTX 950, and is expected to arrive around August 17th. Remember guys that this information is unconfirmed by Nvidia at this time, so tke this information with a piece of salt.

We know that this GPU will be made using Nvidia's GM206-250 GPU core, which is likely to be a cut down version of the GPU core used in Nvidia's existing GTX 960 GPU. Below is a set of leaked specifications for Nvidia's upcoming GPU.  

 

GTX 950 Specifications Leaked  

Being based on a cut down version of Nvidia's GTX 960 GPU core, we expect that one SMX unit will be disabled in this GPU, which equates to the having 256 less GPU cores than the GTX 960's core count of 1028, which gives the GTX 950 a total of 768 GPU cores, which is 25% less than the GTX 960. 

Again like the GTX 960 the GTX 950 is rumored to have a 128-bit memory bus, which combined with it's slightly slower GDDR5 memory gives it memory bandwidth of around 107.68GB/s. This is only a minir decrease from the GTX 960's memory bandwidth of 112GB/s. 

With these specification I expect that this GPU will have around 20-25% less performance that Nvidia's GTX 960 GPU, which is a lot for a GPU which is expected to cost under $150.

This new GPU is expected to be coming in at the $150 price point, placing it head to head with AMD's new R7 370 GPU. The launch of a new GPU at this price from Nvidia will no doubt drive some competitive pricing at the low end, which is certainly a good thing those who build budget gaming PCs.

The 750ti is priced at around $150 and it would also be slightly faster due to more cores. That should help it compete with the 370 but I'm unsure if it would be able to compete well against it.Quote

This is the bread and butter market where AMD usually shine. Looking forward to this though (man it's a ugly SOB )Quote
