An alleged NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 GPU-Z screenshot has been revealed on the Chiphell forums. It is been stated that NVIDIA will be launching the GeForce GTX 760 graphics card in the upcoming week. We thought GeForce GTX is going to be an upgraded model of the previously introduced GeForce GTX 670 but no, it isn’t. From the latest GPU-Z screen shot we see NVIDIA has made a couple of changes with the GK 104-225 A2 Kepler core. The change which is pretty obvious and noticeable that NVIDIA has reduced 2SMX units off the Kepler core with a quantity of 1152 Cuda cores, 32 ROPs and 96TMUs within the new graphic unit. Compared to the previous models, this would certainly be a great hit on the basis of performance.
Besides this NVIDIA has also assured that performance shortfall caused by the reduction of an SMX unit can be actually beated by boosting up the clock speed. The GeForce GTX 760 GPU has been configured at a clock speed of 1072MHz with a boost clock of 1111MHz. If that is still not adequate then NVIDIA has also forced the memory clock at the reference 7GHz (effective) speed for the GeForce 700 series.
With great clock speed, NVIDIA has given another advantage to its consumer’s i.e. enhanced custom cooling system. Each cooler look distinctively similar to those used in the previous launched models GTX (770,670,660Ti). Sources even tell us that this time NVIDIA will not be launching GeForce GTX 760 under the brand of TI, reason still unknown.
It will launch within this week with a price tag of $299.
