VR Zone spotted a rumor that NVIDIA will launch its GeForce GTS 450 on September 13th. This GF106 card is expected to feature 192 shader processors and competes with the ATI Radeon HD 5700 series.
The core and memory speed are slightly down from previous rumours to 783 MHz and 1804 MHz respectively. The GTS 450 will feature 1GB GDDR5 over a 128-bit memory bus, thus a bandwidth of 57.8 MB/s, well below the HD 5770 (76.8 MB/s), the previous 192 SP card GTX 260 (112 MB/s) and even the GTS 250 (70 MB/s).
Continuing with Nvidia's recent strategy of aggressive pricing, the GTS 450 is expected to retail at only $129. This prices it well under the HD 5770 and even the HD 5750.
