The news just wouldn’t be any fun if we didn’t bring you rumours about some company somewhere, launching some interesting new product, which – if and when released – will likely fall short of all our expectations.
This week, that product would be NVIDIA’s expected GTS 450 video card. EXPreview is claiming to have insider knowledge of the companies next mid-range card that continues their focus on the sub $199 mid-range market.
The GTS 450 is said to feature another redesigned core, the GF106, including 1GB GDDR5 memory and a 128-bit memory bus. However, recent images circling around the web depicting the image of an unknown NVIDIA PCB, indicate that the upcoming card may actually have 768MB of memory, a 3+1 phase power, single 6-pin power connector and SLI capabilities.
The card is expected to launch sometime in late August and while no pricing details have emerged, NVIDIA is likely provide at least a $50 gap between it, and their newly released $199 GTX 460 768MB, in order to not cannibalize sales.
