Rumors are circulating online that NVIDIA is preparing to roll out a GeForce GTX 960 in January. This mid-range Maxwell GPU may be revealed at CES in Las Vegas, the specifications are still unknown but the card is now believed to feature a GM206 GPU with a 128-bit memory bus with 2GB GDDR5 memory. This contradicts earlier information that pointed to a 256-bit bus and 4GB GDDR5 memory. Performance is said to be in-line with the GeForce GTX 770, while offering significantly better power-efficiency.
For those who can recall, shipping manifest data that emerged in early November suggested the GTX 960 would be an altogether more powerful beast with 4GB of GDDR5 memory on a 256-bit bus, clocking in 993MHz core and 6,008MHz memory. Pricing is expected to be between $249 and $299, meaning £190-230 for UK buyers, enabling Nvidia to directly replace and phase out the $249 GTX 760.
