New details on future GeForce and Radeon graphics cards

The recent release of the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards has started a new round of competition on the 3D visuals front, which means that in the near future we will get to see a number of new NVIDIA and AMD products. The natural question is what will we get then?

Well, there are new details on upcoming graphics cards from both camps. We will start with the more interesting and promising product – the already expected GeForce GTX 960 graphics card that will bring the newest Maxwell technology to the mainstream market segment. According to the latest rumors the card will sell for around USD 250 and will include either a GM204 GPU or a GM206 chip but one thing is for sure – it will have 3 GB of GDDR5 memory, a 192-bit memory bus and 1280 CUDA cores. Unfortunately there’s no information on the clock speeds of both memory and GPU.

The second product we have some more info about is the rumored Radeon R9 285X. The latest news is that the upcoming AMD product will, after all, have a 384-bit memory bus, instead of the reported 256-bit bus. This is of course good news for AMD fans but it seems the company will have to readjust prices a bit, since the Radeon R9 285 now sells for around USD 250, which means that the R9 285X will be more expensive. Unfortunately for around USD 300 you can get a GeForce GTX 970 card, which will be definitely faster than the upcoming Radeon R9 285X and this is a reason for concern for AMD.
