NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 GPU-Z Screenshot Leaked – Features 1152 Cores, Memory Clocked At 7 GHz
An alleged GPU-z screenshot of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 760 has been leaked by Chiphell forums. It was reported that NVIDIA would be releasing their new GeForce GTX 760 in the upcoming week with non-reference models already appearing on various retail sites.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Comes With Faster Clocks, Lower Cores
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 also made sure that the performance deficit caused by the reduction of an SMX unit can be overcome by boosting the clock speeds. The core of the GeForce GTX 760 GPU is configured high at 1072 MHz with a Boost clock of 1111 MHz. If that's not enough, then 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.
For cooling, it would be a miracle to see the card in its reference design since almost every manufacturer are using their custom coolers with the new GeForce GTX 760 GPU. Even so that each cooler looks distinctively similar to those used on GeForce GTX 770/670/660Ti. NVIDIA is also said to not release the GeForce GTX 760 under the TI branding. The specific reason was not detailed. The GeForce GTX 760 is said to launch within this week at a price of $299.
