NVIDIA thinks of releasing GeForce GTX 960 Ti video card
The release of the Radeon R9 380X video card, which occupies the market niche between the GeForce GTX 960 and GTX 970 graphics adapters has stirred things up on the graphics card market. The new Radeon R9 380X card plus the recent successes of AMD on the graphics card market (remember, AMD shipped more video cards than expected in Q3 2015) have apparently made NVIDIA think of releasing a new video card that will battle the R9 380X. Not surprisingly the new card will likely be called GeForce GTX 960 Ti.
The new card has not been confirmed just yet so what you are about to read are just rumors but then again two months ago the R9 380X was also a rumor. The GTX 960 Ti will likely feature a cut-down GM204 GPU that will come with 1280 stream processors, a 192-bit memory bus and 3 GB of GDDR5 memory. The clock frequencies will likely be around 1150-1200 MHz for the GPU and to about 6000 MHz for the memory.
The rumored GTX 960 Ti card may not arrive at all given that AMD fails to sell a lot of R9 380X cards. In addition NVIDIA has some options – it can release a GTX 950 Ti card or lower the prices of the GTX 960 and GTX 970 cards. We will see what happens in the next few weeks.
