It looks like Nvidia is set to introduce a new entry-level card in the GeForce 900 series. Retailer listings of an Asus Strix GTX 950 followed by a leak from earlier today of a PNY-branded GeForce GTX 950’s retail packaging suggests that a launch is around the corner.
According to the leaks thus far, the GTX 950 will be based on the GM206 Maxwell silicon, with the dual-slot card drawing power from a 6-pin or 8-pin power connector. The card is rumored to offer 768 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 video memory on a 128-bit interface. In terms of cooling, the card will feature a single fan-based heatsink.
From the hardware on offer, Nvidia will be looking to market the GTX 950 as the successor to the GTX 750 Ti, with the card slated to be priced under $150 and positioned against the Radeon R7 370. We should be hearing something official from Nvidia later this month, so stay tuned.
