[wccf] Nvidia Geforce GTX 960 to have two ‘Ti’ variants – Upto 1536 CUDA Cores, Benchmarks Revealed - Page 21

post #201 of 264

SO is the 960 basically going to be about an mildly OC'd 670? That seems about right. Still a great performer, but Nvidia should realize that 670s can be had for $125 or so.

Let us be sure that Nvidia knows full well what a 670 is worth. From that point you should think about the differences between performance/benchmarking vs Architecture and features.

Remember All of the Following statements are based upon Rumors of a Card that hasn't been released or benchmarked yet:

Just because the 960 gets similar performance to a slightly OC'd 670 doesn' mean there isn't a huge list of reasons why you would want it over the older models. The rumored TDP of the 960 is roughly 100W, A vast improvement for the same performance of a 170W TDP 670. With newer games introducing MFAA into their coding, the 900 series can run AA that looks better without the big hit of SSAA or TXAA.

Last but not least, The newer reference Designs from ASUS and MSI have become quieter and lower profile to make the overall experience of building with and using the GPU alot easier.

"I'm just exaggerating".

You're spreading FUD in the hopes everyone is an idiot.

Some games. What games? Do you have anything backing up these outlandish claims. Will it sound like you're not cherry picking irrelevant games from ages long gone?

Yes, that all seems quite right. Bravo.

So, 960 ~ 770 performance
And the 960ti ~ 780 performance
What's the pricing on those two?
Correct me if I'm wrong, haven't been following this topic that properly. tongue.gif

Still nothing confirmed except for 2gb memory and 128-bit bus for the 960.

So, the 1536 CUDA cores part will be a harvested GM204 chip, just like the GTX 660 Ti was a harvested GK204, right ?

Is there any confirmation whether GM206 has 1024 or 1280 cores ? One of the articles that has a picture of the die seems to suggest it's exactly half of GM204, hence it would have 1024. Depending on clocks it might be as fast as a GTX 680.

Then they can use the faulty ones to make the GTX 950 Ti, with 768 CUDA cores. The GTX 750 Ti is almost a year old now (released February 18, 2014).

After examining the performance (and the asking price) of an R9 285, I concluded that it was the worst video card ever released since the GTX480, not sure how you can estimate the performance of the R9 3XX series with that card lol.

Are you serious ? GM204 die is about 25% smaller than the GK110 but the GTX980 beat the 780ti by about 10% on average while consuming significantly less power (run cooler as well) and require less memory bandwidth, all that on the same manufacturing process. No offense but you are totally delusional.

You actually think the new R9 300 series will be TWICE as fast as Maxwell?

Do you really understand what you are saying? Twice. Twice as fast?

AMD doesn't even have the technology to do that in R&D, hell, I don't think Nvidia even has the technology that doubles the performance of Maxwell in R&D. Sure, they both probably have R&D tech that is more powerful, but also more efficient, etc.

Could the "R9 300" be faster than Maxwell? Sure, it could, but it sure as hell isn't going to be TWICE as fast. Hell, even if it is faster it will more than likely consume more energy - hope to god not!
