GeForce GTX 950 SE may be cheaper GTX 950

A few days ago we found out NVIDIA was planning to release a new video card called GeForce GTX 950 SE, which was to take the market spot below the GTX 950 and retire the older GeForce GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti video cards. Now it appears that something else might happen.

Apparently the upcoming GeForce GTX 950 SE might turn out to be a slower and cheaper GTX 950 video card instead of an entirely new piece of hardware. The problem of NVIDIA is that there’s a market hole between the GTX 750 Ti and GTX 950 where the latter is definitely more expensive than the former video card. NVIDIA wants to fill in the hole with a new product and the GTX 950 SE might be it. The new card will not differ much from the original GTX 950 – it will come with the same GPU and memory but their clock speeds will be lowered. The benefit is that this will also lower the power consumption of the card, which will now be 75W max. This means that the GTX 950 SE will not come with an additional 6-pin power connector, which is seen in the GTX 950. Unfortunately this means that the GTX 950 SE will not be overclockable since it will not be able to get all the power it needs to run at higher clock speeds.

The new GTX 950 SE is expected in March and this is when we will see the end of this story as well as the final tech specs.
