Nvidia has continued to roll out the GeForce 700 series this week with the GTX 760 -- the generation's first truly mainstream product, with pricing well under that of the GTX Titan, 780 and even the 770, which at $400 still costs more than the average gamer is willing to spend. In other words, the GTX 760 has the potential to be today's most relevant option for someone who needs a new graphics card.
Previous 700 series cards have been heavy hitters, with the GTX 770 packing about as much muscle as the GTX 680 for about $100 less. Assuming Nvidia doesn't throw us a curve ball, we expect the GTX 760 to deliver performance comparable to that of the HD 7950 with a price tag that's closer to HD 7870s -- a situation that would invariably benefit anyone shopping for a mid-range GPU.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 is based on Nvidia's GK104 architecture. It features 1152 CUDA cores, 96 TMUs and 32 ROPs. In terms of frecuencies, the GTX 760′s cores run at 980 MHz with a 1033 MHz boost clock. Addionally, the GTX 760 comes in two versions, one with 2GB and another with 4GB of GDDR5. Last but not least, the GTX 760 includes a pair of SLI connectors, one HDMI, one DisplayPort and two DVI ports.
