If the team over on EXPreview have it right, we can expect another mid-range graphics card from Nvidia this month or next.
Back in January Nvidia launched the mid-range GTX 560 Ti. This card replaced the GTX 460 using a refined GF114 GPU. The upcoming (allegedly) GTX 560 (non-Ti) card will sport the same GPU, only it will have fewer cores and a slower clock-speed bringing the price down from its ‘Ti’ big brother.
According to the source, the card will feature 336 CUDA cores, 56 texture units, 32 ROPs and a 256-bit 1GB memory interface (GDDR5). The card’s retail price will reportedly be around the €180 mark.
AMD is also planning a cut-back mid-range card soon, in the form of the HD 6790. So it looks like the never-ending war between camp green and camp red is only just heating up.
One thing’s for certain there has never been a better time to build a PC. Graphics cards are in abundance, from the low-end right up to dual-GPU paradise.
