According to a report from Hermitage Akihabara the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 will launch on August 20th, that is this Thursday! The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 will be NVIDIA’s entry-level discrete graphics card effectively replacing the GeForce GTX 750 Ti. In related news the official specifications of the card have been confirmed as well.
Taking a look at the specs the card will have 768 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit interface. The card will have a base clock of 1089 MHz with a boost clock of 1266 MHz. The memory is set at 6.6 GHz (1652 MHz), which means it is 100 MHz slower than the GTX 960. The card will be powered for a single 6-pin PCI-Express power connector and will have a TDP of 90W. That is 30W more than the GTX 750 Ti, but 30W less than the GTX 960. The guys over at VideoCardz have made a nice comparison chart between the three cards.
We have already seen pictures of PNY’s GTX 950 offering, but ones from Gigabyte’s and Zotac have been leaked as well!
As you can see most versions of this card will be shorter making them perfect for HTPC setups.
