With Nvidia reportedly set to announce a new mid-range graphics card in under a month's time, rumors are starting to appear that allegedly reveal this card's specifications and features in detail.
This new graphics card will allegedly be known as the GeForce GTX 950, not the 'GTX 950 Ti' as was previously rumored, and will use a cut down version of Nvidia's GM206 GPU that was first seen in the GTX 960. For the GTX 950, one quarter of the GM206's CUDA cores will be disabled, giving it a core count of 768 with 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs.
The GTX 950's clock speeds will reportedly sit at 1150 to 1250 MHz with a boost clock of 1350 to 1450 MHz: higher than the clock speeds seen on the GTX 960. The graphics card will come with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory on a 128-bit bus, providing around 107 GB/s of bandwidth when clocked somewhere between 6.60 and 6.75 GHz.
As for other aspects of the card, the GTX 950 will allegedly come with a single 8-pin PCIe power connector despite the GPU's 90W TDP. The reference board features two DVI ports, a HDMI 2.0 port and a DisplayPort 1.2 output.
Rumors suggest Nvidia will launch the GeForce GTX 950 on August 17th, which will be around two and a half months since the launch of the GTX 980 Ti. It will replace the GTX 750 Ti in Nvidia's current line-up, and compete with AMD's Radeon R7 370 in the $150 graphics card market.
