Nevertheless, as the latest rumors suggest, the card packs 4 SMX clusters along with 786 CUDA cores with 2 GB of DDR5 memory across either a 192 bit or 256 bit interface. More of, the 256 bit is more likely to come.

As for earlier 500 series GeForce GPUs, they maintained the following launch pricing:

GTX 560 SE 192-bit –$150
