It seems like another month, another new NVIDIA card hits the streets – but we’re not complaining. The new GeForce GTX 760 looks to be a solid midrange card, coming in around $250 and slotting into the lineup just below the GTX 770. This card brings 1152 CUDA cores to the table, with a default clock speed of 980MHz – but it looks like most of the launch models offer some sort of overclock.
As the chart shows, you’ll be able to get a GTX 760 with between 2GB and 4GB of graphics memory, though first wave models all feature ‘just’ 2GB. Despite carrying a midrange pricetag and feature set, it’s no slouch – at least, not if NVIDIA’s numbers are to be believed. The graphics company claims more than playable framerates at 1080p of just about every modern pixel pushing title – including those built on the power hungry CryEngine 3 and Dunia Engine 2.
NVIDIA is quick to point out that the GTX760 offers between 12% and 23% greater performance than the card it’s replacing, the GTX 660 (depending on model), despite coming to market $50 cheaper.
They’ve secured the help of several board partners, meaning you’ll be able to pick up a GTX 760 on launch day – from just about anybody you want. ASUS, EVGA, Galaxy, Gigabyte, MSI, PNY, and Zotac all have models on offer, with MSRPs between $249.99 and $264.99.
If you need to spruce up your aging gaming PC, but don’t want to mortgage the house, the new GTX 760 looks like a solid choice – and it’s available today.
