My System Specs

Default GTX 760 specs confirmed.

So specs to the gtx 760 were confirmed today. I was planning on possibly purchasing one or 2 of these but I'm a little confused as to how this card is expected to perform and what these specs really mean. As compared to the 660 ti it has less CUDA cores(1344), less TMU's(112), more ROP's(24) and a wider memory interface(192-bit).

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Specifications Disclosed | techPowerUp

GPU - GK104-225
CUDA Cores - 1152
TMUs - 96
ROPs - 32
Memory - 2 GB (4 GB non-reference versions expected as well)
Interface - 256-bit
Base Clock - 980 MHz
Boost Clock - 1033 MHz
Memory Clock - 1502 Mhz (6008 Mhz effective)
Memory Bandwidth - 192 GB/s
TDP - 170 W
Power Connectors - 2 x 6-pin
Release Date - June 25th

Anyone care to speculate on this card. Will it perform worse, better or similar to a 660 ti?
I guess it all comes down to the MSRP but I'm wondering now if I should explore other avenues such as GTX 670, 770 or GTX 660 SLI.

Well, I don't think the handful of ROPs are going to make up for the big loss in shaders and TMU's. I wouldn't expect it to beat the 660 Ti.

If those specs are correct I would expect it to fall between the 660 and 660Ti. I guess we will find out how it actually performs (and if those specs are correct) next week if rumours are true.

IF that is true I would hope it has a MSRP around $249.

i was reading on that videocardz site that this card from some new screenshots is supposed to compete and beat both the 7950 vanilla and boost versions. if its priced in the 250 range then its a win win for us all. i cant remeber when buying a video card had so many options with pricing and value. i just really hope amd has something up their sleeves other then the july 31st crossfire fix.

Does Memory Interface come into play much anymore? Only because most mid range cards I see now are 192bit, whereas my 560ti is 256. Have they made them more efficient so that only the highest end cards now use 256?

DDR5 mitigates the 192bit bus however this is just fine for 1080P and below in my experience.
