NVIDIA preps GeForce GTX 560 SE, wants to tango with AMD's Radeon HD 7770

NVIDIA to counter the HD 7770 from AMD with their new GeForce GTX 560 SE

NVIDIA rebrands again, and is set to release the 6th member of the desktop GTX 560 family, which will enjoy giving presents to the following GPUs on Christmas: GTX 560 Ti, GTX 560, GTX 560 Ti (OEM), GTX 560 (OEM) and GTX 560 Ti 448 Core.

But, the GTX 560 SE seems to fall in line more with the OEM GTX 555 than those GPUs. The GTX 560 SE is made from a GF114 derivative, but with 2 SMs disabled which brings it to a total of 288 SP and 48 TMU. Core clocks will be placed at 776MHz, with shaders placed at 1552MHz. 1 MC is disabled, which gives the GTX 560 SE a memory interface of 192-bit, with 3828MHz 1GB GDDR5 with a total bandwidth of 92GB/sec.

The new GTX 560 SE is expected to offer performance similar to that of the GTX 555 OEM, and is looking to go into the ring against the quite-amazing AMD Radeon HD 7770. It will be priced quite competitively, at the $150-mark, but won't match AMD's amazing performance/watt ratio.
