The year 2016 will be the year in which we will jump to modern and innovative production processes in the world of graphics core, but until that happens we will expect some more guest appearances from 28 Technology The good old
The upcoming Pascal generation NVIDIA Sounds more exciting with every new piece of information coming to us, but it should be remembered that the first models based on it may reach the actual market in just six months, which also means that the first "popular" intermediate models may land only towards the end of 2016 - Somewhere in an area of 'eternity' in terms of the hardware world, and ostensibly brings a NVIDIA To continue to exhaust all the potential of its current and final generation 28 nanometer.
According to Chinese site benchlife, Which has brought us some juicy leaks over the past month,NVIDIA Are not yet ready to spend the next generationMaxwell 2.0, and are currently preparing the "Geforce GTX 960 Ti, which will probably reduce the 100 gap between the GTX 970 and the GTX 960 significantly, especially when it appears that the 4GB version of the GTX 960 will fully take the place of the basic 2GB version.
The technical details of the new model are not yet available, but it is assumed that this will be a large GM204 core where several processing clusters have been disabled and memory controller bandwidth has been reduced - something we have already seen in the GTX 965M and GTX 970M mobile models, 970 Desktop. It seems that the real options available to me NVIDIA Both the 9 12 and the 16 are equipped with active 204 processing clusters from the existing 1,152 core, providing 1,536 to 128 with CUDA to work with 192 bit or XNUMX bit width.
This type of GeForce GTX 960 Ti should be enough to be a significant and worthy competition AMD's new Radeon R9 380X, But it is not certain that this will suffice to convince the insiders - it will take a particularly good cost / benefit ratio to convince hardware enthusiasts to go on a card from the current architecture, with a massive technological leap ahead that also promises to change the world in terms of the hardware world.
God-Geforce GTX 960 Ti may be revealed in January 2016, so we certainly hope that we will hear more details about it, to help us decide whether it will be great or unnecessary, soon.
