Nvidia on Tuesday added yet another graphics card into the GeForce GTX 700 family of products. The GeForce GTX 760 is yet another graphics card based on the GK104 graphics processing unit announced a year ago that is available at considerably more affordable price-point than the predecessor. Performance of the novelty should bet between GeForce GTX 660 Ti and GeForce GTX 670.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 is powered by a cut-down version of GK104 graphics processing unit and features 1152 stream processors, 96 texture units, 32 raster operating units as well as 256-bit memory bus. The chip is clocked at 980MHz, whereas 2GB of GDDR5 memory operate at 6GHz. The GeForce GTX 760 includes Nvidia GPU Boost 2.0 technology, which automatically increases the GPU's clock speed for enhanced performance, while adding temperature target and fan controls, as well as extra over-voltage headroom and optimizations for advanced water-cooling solutions.

The new graphics card fully supports modern high-end features like DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.2, OpenCL 1.2, stereoscopic-3D, 4 multi-monitor capability, PhysX, 3-way multi-GPU, PCI Express 3.0 and so on.

"For gamers seeking insanely fast performance and smooth frame rates for their favorite games, the choice is clear: Nvidia GeForce GTX GPUs. At a starting price of only $249, the GeForce GTX 760 ushers in a new level of performance, features and affordability, so gamers can experience today's most graphically demanding titles with all the eye candy turned high. It's a great time to be a PC gamer," said Scott Herkelman, general manager of the GeForce GPU business at Nvidia.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 GPU is available now from the world's leading add-in card suppliers, including Asustek, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. Partner participation will vary by region. Pricing is expected to start at $249.

It will also be sold in fully configured systems from leading U.S.-based system builders, including AvaDirect, Cyberpower, Digital Storm, Falcon Northwest, Geekbox, IBuyPower, Maingear, Origin PC, Puget Systems, V3 Gaming and Velocity Micro, as well as other system integrators outside North America.

It seems nVidia hasn't been competitive cost-wise in this segment for a while, so this is a nice surprise. AvidOne is right--great for the consumer.

Increased memory bandwidth equals better performance, as witnessed in comparisons with the 660Ti.
Now if only they had increased bandwidth on that card.....

Basically exactly the same as a 7870XT, which has had the same price for 6 months (if not at times closer to $200).

It's clocked to be equal to 1536sp 1000/6000 from AMD...likely to look better than 7870xt at stock and in the ballpark of what to expect stock from the pro ('50') version of Pitcairn's successor.

When you put it all together, they both will overclock about 20%...is and should be roughly a stalemate in this segment. It's purposeful: they both knew/know what they have to hit for performance (it has to be able to overclock to hit 60fps/1080p in most games, the stock performance of the next card up the stack at stock) because these cards are their bread and butter and that threshold is key to the vast majority of the market be it budget-minded overclockers or the stock out-of-the-box type.

760 is a shorter pcb, which is good...but also noisy unless willing to give up that length for a better cooler (ex MSI) which makes them for all intents and purposes equal again. Sure 760 consumes a little less power, but with the same pci-e spec and 7870XT will be replaced for a more efficient model that is similar soon...stalemate again.

The tie breaker is really the past, current, and future of the AMD NS bundles IMHO, because really...it's dead even give or take some very minute details for either side.
