We all know that Nvidia is going to launch their Geforce Gtx 960 graphics card today on 22 Jan 2015. NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 960 is the first to feature the latest GM206 graphics processing units. As far as specifications are concerned, the GM206 based GeForce GTX 960 features 1024 CUDA cores, 64 Texture mapping units and 32 Raster operation units. It is clocked at 1127 MHz base and 1178 MHz boost clock. The graphics card also comes with a 2 GB GDDR5 video ram which operates along a 128-bit bus that is clocked at 7.00 GHz (1753 MHz QDR), pumping out 112 GB/s of cumulative bandwidth. The GeForce GTX 960 graphics card will consume power of 120W (TDP) that will be provided by a single 6-Pin connector. Display outputs include Dual-DVI, HDMI 2.0 and a single display port. Technology such as DirectX 11.3 and DirectX 12 API support will be available.
Amd can simply compare their older generation card the Radeon R9 280 to this card and claim better performance. While what is observed is that they may be pitching the Radeon R9 285 as direct competition to the Geforce GTX 960
A small spec comparsison can be as follows.
- 128-bit memory interface
- 2GB frame buffer
R9 card would give the following
- More memory bandwidth, with 256-bit (and higher) parts
- Beyond HD gaming experience with MSAA and AF, for superior performance
- Smooth game play at 4K resolutions in top-10 games like DOTA2, CS:GO, TF2, LoL and more
- Support for AMD technologies like Mantle, Eyefinity, TrueAudio (R9 285) and Freesync (R9 285)
