GeForce GTX 960 comes on January 22

It is all official now, although unconfirmed by NVIDIA – the new mid-range Maxwell-based GeForce GTX 960 graphics card will hit the market on January 22, 2015.

The new card will cost USD 199 – USD 229 depending on the model and will offer a GM206 graphics processor, which happens to be a simpler version of the almighty GM204 core. This is the main reason why the GTX 960 will have 1280 stream processors, 10 SMM units and 64 ROPs. The card will offer 4 GB of GDDR5 memory accessed over a 256-bit bus and will likely include a new hardware HEVC/H.265 and VP9 decoder for playback of ultra-high-definition (UHD) content. If this happens it will be the first time a Maxwell graphics card gets this technology.

Once launched the new card will be available from MSI, Gigabyte, ASUS, Palit and other major manufacturers.
