NVIDIA adds one more graphics card to product lineup
NVIDIA has presented a new video card that will soon enrich the company’s product portfolio. This time we are talking about the all new GeForce GT 740 video card but when you look closer at it you will find out that this is not a Maxwell-based video solution; instead it uses Kepler hardware to play games.
The GeForce GT 740 comes with a slightly modified GK 107 GPU that belongs to the Kepler generation and this fact alone makes the new card very similar to the GeForce GTX 640 and GTX 650. The GT 740 features 384 stream processors, 32 texture units and 16 ROPs next to 1 GB of GDDR5 or 2 GB of GDDR3 memory that gets accessed over a 128-bit memory bus. The video card GPU runs at 933 MHz, while the memory functions at 5000 MHz for the GDDR5 model and 1800 MHz for the GDDR3 version. The TDP of the card is 65W but it needs additional power to be supplied through a 6-pin connector.
The GeForce GT 740 can be found for around USD 100.
