Leaks about Nvidia GTX 950 are starting to appear, pointing towards imminent launch of GTX 950 mid-August. It is yet unclear when exactly does this card launch, but we have all interesting details here.
First up are the first traces of ASUS STRIX GTX 950, which I suppose will look just like STRIX GTX 960. Card is now confirmed to feature 2GB GDDR5 memory and DirectCUII cooling solution. The OC label also suggest we are looking at factory-overclocked solution.
The price varies between €240-280 depending where you look. These prices are definitely placeholders, as you can buy GTX 960 for less in the same stores. The final price should end up between €140-200.
GPU-Z has no support for GTX950. That said, the numbers we are seeing may not represent the final specs. Device ID reported as 1402 confirms we are looking at new GM206 product (GTX950 is 1402). The card is equipped with 768 CUDA cores (6 SMX), 32 ROPs and unconfirmed number of TMUs (GPU-Z reports 64, but it should be 48).
GeForce GTX 950 will be available in two variants: 2GB and 4GB. The memory bus is the same as on GTX 960, which is 128-bit wide.
According to Expreview, GTX 960 and GTX 950 share the same board model, which means AIBs will have no trouble adopting their current solutions for GTX 950.
GeForce GTX 950 is expected in to launch in the coming weeks.
