GeForce GTX 950 specs listed

The fact that NVIDIA plans to launch a new entry-level Maxwell graphics card is nothing new and we even know its name – GeForce GTX 950 Ti. What we didn’t know was what the card would pack in terms of clock speeds and memory but this is no longer the case – the tech specs of this card have been published online.

We won’t start with them here, though – NVIDIA’s upcoming card will be officially known as just GeForce GTX 950 (which leaves room for a GTX 950 Ti version a bit later). The card will replace the current GeForce GTX 750 Ti and will compete with the AMD Radeon R7 370. The GTX 950 will apparently be based on GM206 silicon, which is the same GPU that powers the GTX 960. The GTX 950 will obviously be a bit slower and that’s why it will come with a quarter of the GM206 stream processors disabled in order to reduce performance and avoid competition with the GTX 960. This means the new card will have 768 CUDA cores, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The card will also have 2 GB of GDDR5 memory and a 128-bit memory bus.

As to clock speeds the GTX 950 will likely come with the GPU clocked somewhere between 1150 MHz and 1250 MHz with Turbo speeds that range between 1350 MHz and 1450 MHz. The memory is expected to run at 6.60-6.75 GHz with the memory bandwidth lying around 107.7 GB/sec. The GTX 950 should come with 2-way SLI support and dual-link DVI, HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 connectors. It will draw power from an 8-pin power connector and will need around 90 watts of power.

The GTX 950 is expected to arrive on August 17 this year.
