Word on the street is that NVIDIA is getting ready to release a new mainstream graphics card sometime this month called the GeForce GTX 950. The folks over at Expreview have posted up a GPU-Z screenshot of the GTX 950 video card specifications. We highly doubt that GPU-Z 0.8.5 is fully updated to support the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950, but usually some of the information is right. From what it looks like the GeForce GTX 950 has 768 CUDA cores, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and 2GB of GDDR5 memory on a 128-bit bus. The core architecture is shown as unknown, but odds are that the GeForce GTX 950 2GB video card features a Maxwell GPU. Clock speeds were removed, but we expect them to top out at under 1200MHz as previous cards of this class have been in the 1,100-1,200 clock range. The GPU-Z screen shot shows the memory bandwidth being 112.2GB/s, the pixel fillrate is rated at 38.5GPixel/s and the texture fillrate at 77.0 GTexel/s.
With specifications like that it might slide in the GeForce product stack just ahead of the GeForce GTX 750 Ti that has recently come down to under $110 before rebates and promotions. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti has 640 CUDA cores, 40 TMUs, and 16 ROPs for those that are curious.
The first image of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 was also released today by the gang over at VIDEOCARDZ. It shows a dual-slot card with a single fan GPU cooler that looks to be 8 to 9 inches in length. The retail box just shows that it is a high resolution graphics card with a 3-year warranty.
