NVIDIA rumored to be preparing the GeForce GTX 960 Ti

NVIDIA preparing the GM204-based GeForce GTX 960 Ti to compete against the Radeon R9 380X

AMD has hit the headlines in a huge way today, with the tease that the Radeon R9 Fury X2 will be unveiled next month, and that there are huge price drops across their entire range of video cards - with the Fury X now priced at $589.

But news has broken that NVIDIA is preparing the launch of its GeForce GTX 960 Ti, a card that would compete against the just-released Radeon R9 380X from AMD. NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 960 Ti is said to feature a cut-down GM204 GPU, but when it comes to the CUDA count, things could get interesting. The GTX 960 has 1024 CUDA cores while the GTX 970 has 1664 CUDA cores, so we should expect somewhere in the 1280-1408 CUDA core range for the GTX 960 Ti.

As for the SMM count, the GTX 960 has its 1024 CUDA cores in 8 SMMs, while the GTX 970 has its 1664 CUDA cores across 13 SMMs, so the GTX 960 Ti should arrive with 10 or 11 SMMs. The price point of the GTX 960 Ti should be good, with a price of around $249. We should expect NVIDIA to provide a 192-bit memory bus, up from the 128-bit bus found on the GTX 960.

With CES 2016 right around the corner, I think we will see NVIDIA unveil its new GeForce GTX 960 Ti in early January, or even earlier if it wants to pull the trigger and scoop some of those sales away from AMD for the Radeon R9 380X.
