NVIDIA Brings Maxwell to Millions of Gamers with GeForce GTX 960
Today’s introduction of GeForce GTX 960 brings Maxwell’s powerful and efficient architecture to more gamers than ever before. The GTX 960 offers the same incredible Maxwell performance and advanced technologies of its big brother the GTX 980, but at a more affordable $199 price point. That means more and more gamers can enjoy next-generation PC gameplay, continuing to fuel the PC gaming revolution.
Powerful, Advanced, Efficient
GTX 960, built for PC gamers, provides a cutting-edge gameplay experience that you may have never seen before from any mid-range card. The GTX 960 is powered by 1,024 CUDA cores, while delivering a stunning 60 frames per second on full HD 1080p displays, even on some of the industry’s most demanding new titles like AC Unity. And while the GTX 960 is powerful out of the box, overclockers will also love the performance headroom.
The GTX 960 also supports Maxwell’s advanced technologies like dynamic super resolution (DSR), which provides a 4K experience on a 1080p monitor, and multi-frame anti-aliasing (MFAA), which offers high-quality anti-aliasing with improved performance. Maxwell’s power efficiency means the GTX 960 can serve up MOBA titles such as League of Legends in stone silence – while sipping just 30 watts of power.
With the GTX 960 as part of the GeForce GTX gaming platform, gamers also benefit from NVIDIA technologies like G-SYNC for stutter-free gameplay; GeForce Experience, which lets gamers optimize their systems with a single click; and GameWorks, which helps developers bring new experiences to gamers.
Some benchmark results:
Above is some magnificent results showcasing the performance of GTX 960. The benchmark test above, performed by Toms Hardware, clearly indicates how budget friendly and effective it is as compared to its rival GPU, Radeon R9 285 which has a price tag of $260. This means, you can save around $60 if you choose to go for GTX 960 rather than the latter.
And its graphics capabilities include support for Microsoft’s next-generation DirectX 12 standard, due this year with Windows 10 (see “Level Up: With Windows 10 — and DirectX — PC Gaming Will Soon Be Better Than Ever“). More than 100 game studios are already working on titles built for DirectX 12.
The GTX 960 will enable more gamers to enjoy Maxwell’s advanced, next-gen gaming experience. Follow this link for more information on the GTX 960.
