Yesterday, we saw the first GPU-z screenshot of NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce GTX 760 graphics card which showed less impressive specifications than previously anticipated. The performance numbers of the GeForce graphics card have also been leaked by Chiphell which can be seen below.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 3DMark 11 Performance Unveiled
The GeForce GTX 760 was supposed to be a rebadge of the GeForce GTX 670 but it isn’t. From the latest GPU-z screenshot, we can see that NVIDIA made a few changes with the new GK104-225 A2 Kepler core. The notable change is that NVIDIA has cut down 2 SMX units off the Kepler core which amount to 1152 Cuda cores, 32 ROPs and 96 TMUs within the new graphics processing unit. Compared to both the GeForce GTX 660 Ti and the GTX 670, this would mean a massive hit to performance but at the same time NVIDIA brought a 2 GB GDDR5 memory running across a 256-bit interface compared to the 192-bit memory interface on the GeForce GTX 660 Ti.
NVIDIA has also pumped the memory clock at the reference 7 GHz speed for the GeForce 700 series (excluding GeForce 780). These are great numbers which bring the frequencies upto the mark of overclocked GeForce 600 series cards and we would be looking at even faster clocked custom models with the ability to overclock here. Now one thing to note is that the user who leaked the performance results is the same guy from Chiphell who yesterday gave us the GPU-z screenshot and he has revealed that the GTX 760 model he received for testing is a non-reference variant hence clocked at 1072 MHz for core and 1111 MHz for boost. The memory clock should remain the same for reference variants too. So its still not known what would the reference variants boast in terms of clock frequencies, performance could take a major hit if they end up below the 1 GHz mark.
