NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 to be updated with cut-down GM206 GPU?

Rumors are going around that NVIDIA is no longer supplying the GM107-300 GPU, which is used for the GeForce GTX 750 video card. This card was the first iteration of the Maxwell architecture, and if the rumors are right NVIDIA plans to replace the card by offering a cut-down version of the more powerful Maxwell 2.0 based GM206 GPU:
Naturally once we heard this, we did our own digging and came across multiple points of confirmation. The source mentioned that the silicon in question will be named “GM206-150” and we were able to find the die in PCI id code databases. The full nomenclature is actually “GM206-150-A1”. I was also able to find listed models of the GM206 based Geforce GTX 750, from which we can confirm that the core count will remain exactly the same as before (512 CUDA cores). These new cards will reportedly have the same core count, but a modified ROP count and new features like HDMI 2.0, Dynamic Super Resolution, Third Generation Delta Color Compression, Multi-Pixel Programming Sampling, Nvidia VXGI (Real-Time-Voxel-Global Illumination), VR Direct, and Multi-Frame Sampled Anti-Aliasing(MFAA). The card will support DX12 API up to feature level 12_1.
