NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 960 is supposed to launch on the 22nd of this month, but it looks like performance numbers of the card have been leaked out! The performance numbers come from Chinese PC community PCEVA. It looks like the card was installed on a test-bed that was driven by a Core i7-4770K that was overclocked to 4.50 GHz. The card itself looks to be overclocked as well if the specifications we listed yesterday are true. On 3DMark 11 the card scored P9960 and X3321 in the performance and extreme presets.
Moving on to standard 3DMark Firestrike the card scored 6636 points and with some manual overclocking it managed to score 7509 points.
The user also tested the card on the 3DMark Extreme setting (1440p) and the 3DMark Ultra setting. On the extreme setting the card managed 3438 points and in the ulta setting it scored only 1087 points. Based on these numbers we can assume that the GTX 960 will offer very good Full HD (1920 x 1080) gaming, but not much over that.
