Nvidia has released the Geforce GTX 760 graphic card as a replacement for its popular Geforce GTX 660. Despite the name similarity, Nvidia has indicated that the Nvidia GTX 660 will remain in production.
Nvidia is claiming improved performance in games such as Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts as a response to AMD’s aggressive partnering and bundling of games with its graphics cards. “For gamers seeking insanely fast performance and smooth frame rates for their favorite games, the choice is clear: NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs” said Scott Herkelman, general manager of the GeForce GPU business at Nvidia.
Nvidia’s Geforce GTX 760 has 1,152 cores, with most board vendors opting for 2GB of GDDR5 memory. Gigabyte’s GTX 760 will run the GPU at 1085MHz, which will be boosted to 1,150MHz. The firm has clocked the 2GB of GDDR5 memory at 6GHz with the memory connected to the GPU via a 256-bit bus. Nvidia expects this to be the most common configuration, though manufacturers have the option to include 4GB if they see fit. It boasts 96 TMUs, and 32 render output units (ROPs), as compared to 960 cores, 80 TMUs, and 24 ROPs on the old GTX 660. Price is also up, to $249 from $199.
