According to SweClockers, GeForce GTX 960 is expected to launch during Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next month.
Few days ago a new board model was validated at certification office. The board named PG301 is what could be the codename for Maxwell GM206-based graphics card. For reference, PG401 is the GM204 board, used by GTX 980 and GTX 970. It was also certified few weeks before GTX 900 series were released.
GeForce GTX 960 specifications still remain a mystery. The card could feature 10 Maxwell Streaming Multiprocessors (SMM) with 1280 CUDA cores in total. In terms of memory configuration we could either expect 128-bit interface and 2GB frame buffer or 192-bit with 3GB (which would actually be the configuration of GTX 970M).
Since it’s less than a month, we expect to see much more information in the coming weeks. Consumer Electronics Show takes place January 6-9. The GTX 960 will fill the gap in mid-range segment with 250-300 USD price tag.
