The GM206 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 228 mm² and 2,940 million transistors.
Which is better GTX 960 or GTX 2080?
GeForce GTX 960. Based on TPU review data: “Performance Summary” at 1920×1080, 4K for 2080 Ti and faster.
Which is better AMD RX 590 or GTX 1660?
Early benchmarks show that the GTX 1660 has about a 20% lower effective speed than the 1660 Ti, but with an entry price of $219 USD, the 1660 is also about 20% cheaper. Further, the 1660 has a 12% effective speed advantage over the ~$230 USD 6GB 1060 and a similar real world effective speed to AMD’s $265 USD RX 590.
Which is better AMD 1060 or Nvidia 1660?
Further, the 1660 has a 12% effective speed advantage over the ~$230 USD 6GB 1060 and a similar real world effective speed to AMD’s $265 USD RX 590. NVIDIAs strategy of offering great value Turing products at all price tiers can only be good for competition and consumers.
Which is better GTX 970 or GTX 960?
GeForce GTX 960 power consumption is somewhat disappointing. We have a new card with 640 CUDA cores less than GTX 970 and TDP rated just 25W lower. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 will be available with reference design as well. However due to the cost of NVTTM cooler, GTX 960 will feature older GTX 670-style plastic blower-type cooler.
Is the MSI GTX 960 a blower card?
Note that unlike a blower design, MSI’s 960 vents hot air into the case, so good airflow is a must: those working in particularly small and cramped chassis will want a blower-style card, not to mention something a little smaller thanks to the MSI’s 26.5cm length.
What’s the name of the new Nvidia graphics card?
Today is January 22nd, which means NVIDIA launches GeForce GTX 960. The new GeForce GTX 960 is equipped with Maxwell GM206-300 GPU, which is in fact, the full chip. The GM206 is pretty much GM204 cut in half, thus it has only two Graphics Processing Clusters (GPCs), each with four Streaming Multiprocessors Maxwell (SMMs).
