NVIDIA to counter HD 7790 threat with new product

AMD’s efforts to produce faster and better market positioned graphics cards based on the Southern Islands family have not only led to the upcoming April 2013 arrival of the Radeon HD 7790 graphics card but also to the future release of a new NVIDIA video card that will battle Radeon HD 7790’s market invasion.

Indeed, in order to counter the HD 7790 threat NVIDIA now plans to release a faster version of the GeForce GTX 650 Ti. Expected in late March or in early Aril the new card will be based on the GK106 core and will have 768 stream processors, a 128-bit memory bus, 1-2 GB of GDDR5 memory and clock speeds of 928 MHz for the GPU and 5400 MHz for the memory.

The official product name of the card is still unknown. As to pricing the new NVIDIA product will likely cost the same as the HD 7790.
