Asus has launched the GTX 760 DirectCU Mini 2 GB which features reference clock speeds of 980 / 1033 MHz and has the identical design and construction as the GTX 670 DirectCU Mini that was launched in April.
The graphics card features a 170 mm full-height PCB with a 5-phase VRM that draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe connector, a vapor-chamber plate with a donut-shaped aluminum fin array that is "ventilated by a unique fan that combines top and lateral flow blades into a single impeller."
The Asus GTX 760 DirectCU Mini 2 GB will initially be launched in the U.S. market at a retail price of $299, a $50 increase over the standard GTX 760.
What do you mean "finally"?
- The GTX 460 and 460 SE had 256-bit width. (Not the v2 or 768MB versions)
- The GTX 560 had 256-bit width. (Not the SE version)
- The GTX 560 Ti had 256-bit width. (The 448 cores limited edition had 320-bit width.)
- The GTX 260 had 448-bit width. (Crazy right?)
It seems the only x60 generation that didn't have 256-bit standard was the 660 and 660 Ti.
What's up with that Nvidia?
Nvidia used the flagship Kepler GK-110 GPU in their Tesla K20x and GTX Titan cards. They used cut-down versions in their GTX 780. All three of those cards have 384-bit memory buses. They re-used their GK-104 chips for the rest of the 700-series so far. They upped the clock and memory speeds on GTX 680 and made it the GTX 770. They did the same with GTX 670 and made it into GTX 760. It leaves an odd gap and a lot of speculation about if they will release a GTX 760 Ti and how they will fit it into the product stack.
whats up is you should stop whinging about bits, and look at the actual performance.
