Nvidia Reportedly Developing a GeForce GTX 950 Ti

While various reports and rumors have suggested that the GTX 950 is well on its way, additional details have come out about the card and it’s GTX 950 Ti older sibling. First of all, the report suggests that the GTX 950, which we had long known would arrive in late August, is scheduled for a launch on the 20th, a little under a week away.

Bigger news though is the confirmation of the GTX 950 Ti. According to the source, Nvidia is still developing the GeForce GTX 950 Ti. This card will be based on the GM206 and slot in between the GTX 950 and GTX 960 given its name and might receive a 4GB version. Given that the GTX 950 has 768 shaders and the GTX 960 has 1024 shaders, the 950 Ti is pretty much guaranteed to have 896 shaders. This means Nvidia will have 3 cards packed tightly together in terms of performance. TMU count is expected to be the same between are 3 GM206 siblings but ROP counts for the 950 Ti are still unknown.

With 3 cards so tightly packed together, Nvidia risks confusing consumers and can only really differentiate on price. The shader deficiency between the 980 and 970 hasn’t kept the 970 from nearly matching the 980 and the smaller differences between the GM206 cards probably means even smaller performance disparity. The cut down 950 and 950 Ti will allow Nvidia to get rid of imperfect GM206 dies though. While more budget cards are welcome, Nvidia would probably be better served with a card to slot in the large gap between the 960 and 970, served only by AMD.

Nvidia Preparing GeForce GTX 950 Graphics Cards

We’ve heard a lot of news about high-end graphics cards lately on all fronts, Nvidia GTX 980 Ti as well as AMD’s new Fury line-up, but not everyone can afford nor need the best and fastest graphics card. There is a large customer base that wants a more affordable, yet good mid-ranged card.

Nvidia are working on a new GM206-base product that could very well result in the GTX 950 and GTX 950 Ti cards aimed more at the mid range of systems. The information is still sparse, but what is known so far is that the new graphics processor is codenamed GM260-250, it is a GeForce product, and it is a full GTX product.

That really isn’t a lot of information at all, but it is what a lot of people have been waiting for. Something to replace their current GTX 650 or 750 series with and it looks like they don’t have to wait that much longer.

The GM206-250 is a cut-down version of the GM206-300 that is used in its full capacity on the GTX 960 cards. Looking over to the red side and we’ve seen that AMD compares their R7 370 and R7 360 to the GTX 750 series, meaning that these new cards could cause a stir in the low-end pool, if priced properly.
