AMD "Tonga" GPU Arrives This August

In a bid to counter NVIDIA's bestselling GeForce GTX 760, AMD is preparing a new 28 nm GPU, codenamed "Tonga," as detailed in our older article on the chip. At the time of its writing, we had two theories on what "Tonga" could be, one held that it could be a counter to the GM107, and the other, that's is a step above "Curacao," in a bid to counter the GTX 760. We're now learning that AMD could launch the first graphics cards based on this chip, some time in August. The chip will replace the ailing "Tahiti Pro" silicon, from which is carved out the Radeon R9 280. While the R9 280 offers performance competitive to the GTX 760, it loses out big time on power consumption and heat. The cheaper R9 270X, on the other hand, offers lower performance, and similar power levels. "Tonga" could offer nearly as much performance, while featuring a new combination of components, that help AMD lower not just power draw, but also overall costs.

The 28 nm "Tonga" silicon is expected to feature 2,048 GCN2 stream processors, 128 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. You'll notice that its memory interface is narrower than that of the R9 280, but performance is made up for with a higher stream processor count, and probably higher clock speeds, too. The card could come in memory capacities of 2 GB, with some manufacturers innovating 4 GB variants. There's no word on what the company could end up naming the first cards running this chip.

Palit announced a 4 GB variant of its premium non-reference design GeForce GTX 760 graphics card, the Palit GTX 760 JetStream 4 GB (model: NE5X760010G2-1042J). The card is part of NVIDIA's move to push its partners to launch 4 GB variants of their GTX 760 graphics cards, if they don't already have such products in their lineups. 4 GB gained prominence because 2 GB doesn't meet the recommended system requirements of Battlefield 4, and as such GeForce Experience won't be able to optimize it. The GTX 760 JetStream features factory-overclocked speeds of 1072 MHz core (against 980 MHz NVIDIA reference), GPU Boost clock of 1137 MHz (against 1033 MHz reference), and 6.20 GHz memory (against 6.00 GHz reference). Palit didn't announce pricing.

Leadtek Announces GeForce GTX 760 4GB Hurricane

Leadtek announced the WinFast GeForce GTX 760 Hurricane graphics card with 4 GB of memory (model: WFGTX760-4GD5DF3OC), in what could be among the first of many upcoming GTX 760 graphics cards to ship with double the standard memory amount, to meet with Battlefield 4 recommended system requirements that mandate at least 3 GB of graphics memory. Leadtek's card features a compact dual-slot aluminium fin-stack heatsink that uses four 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes to convey heat from the GPU to two fin-stacks; which are ventilated by a pair of 74 mm fans. Apart from 4 GB of memory, the card ships with factory overclocked speeds of 1111 MHz core (compared to 980 MHz reference), and 6280 MHz memory (compared to 6008 MHz reference, GDDR5-effective).

NVIDIA Sets Up Price Cuts in Response to Radeon R9 Series

In the wake of AMD rolling out the $299 Radeon R9 280X, $199 Radeon R9 270X, and $139 Radeon R7 260X; NVIDIA is giving final touches to price cuts to several of its SKUs, beginning with the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost. Originally priced at $149, pricing of the card could be adjusted closer to that of the R7 260X. Our review of the card revealed NVIDIA's offering to be a staggering 24 percent faster overall. NVIDIA could also lower the price of the now $180 GeForce GTX 660. All eyes, however, are on the $249 GeForce GTX 760, which is sandwiched by AMD's offerings.

There's also talk of NVIDIA developing a new SKU, possibly the "GeForce GTX 760 Ti" or "GeForce GTX 765" (likely names), to occupy the $240~260 price range. We expect this chip to be essentially an overclocked GeForce GTX 670 with GPU Boost 2.0; which may not quite go after the R9 280X, since it's already performing on par with the GeForce GTX 770. The new price cuts could take effect very soon; although DigiTimes isn't ruling out a second round of price-cuts in November, either.

NVIDIA Prepares Two New Sub-$250 SKUs, Price Cuts

With AMD detailing its Radeon R9 and R7 series, especially at some very attractive sub-$299 price-points for the most part, there are jitters being felt at NVIDIA. The company is expected to unveil one or two new sub-$250 GeForce GTX SKUs around mid-October, 2013. The company is also expected to introduce price-cuts across its entire lineup, to make it competitive with AMD's. NVIDIA could tap into its existing GK104 and GK106 silicons to carve out the two new SKUs ranging between $149.99 and $249.99. The idea here would be to topple Radeon R9 270X. Price-cuts could be directed at the likes of GeForce GTX 760 and GTX 770, to make them competitive with the Radeon R9 280X, while in anticipation of the $599 pricing of the R9 290X, NVIDIA could rethink pricing of its $650 GeForce GTX 780, and $1000 GTX TITAN.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Detailed?

How far can you strip down a GK104? Very far. Reports from the Chinese press and the whirring rumor mill there speaks of a new mid-range graphics card SKU taking shape at NVIDIA, named GeForce GTX 750 Ti, which is being designed to succeed the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost, outperform the GeForce GTX 660, and become NVIDIA's posterboy for this year's AAA shooter releases - Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Battlefield 4, when the company expects a tiny spike in GPU sales.

Based on the same G92 GK104 silicon as several other 600- and 700-series GeForce GTX products, the GTX 750 Ti will be configured a notch above the GK106-based GeForce GTX 660. To begin with, it's expected to feature 960 CUDA cores, a notch below the 1152 cores on the GeForce GTX 760. It has the same 80 TMUs as the GTX 660, but 32 ROPs and a 256-bit wide memory interface (compared to 24 ROPs and 192-bit on the GTX 660). Clock speeds are expected to be higher, too, at 1033 MHz core, 1098 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. There's no clarity on when exactly NVIDIA plans to launch the SKU, but we expect that to happen before AMD's late-September high-end extravaganza.

Inno3D Rolls Out GeForce GTX 760 iChill HerculeZ 3000

Inno3D rolled out its fourth GeForce GTX 760 board design, apart from the reference-design card, the HerculeZ OC, and the HerculeZ 2000. The new GTX 760 iChill HerculeZ 3000 is based on the same exact board as the company's GeForce GTX 770 iChill HerculeZ 3000, with a meaty 7-phase VRM, an 8-layer PCB, and the large triple-fan HerculeZ 3000 cooling solution with a backplate. Apart from the GPU, the only physical difference between the two cards, is the power inputs. This card uses just a pair of 6-pin connectors, while the GTX 770 iChill HerculeZ 3000 relies on a combination of 8-pin and 6-pin connectors.

The GeForce GTX 760 iChill HerculeZ 3000 uses a PCB heavily based on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 680 reference design, with a 5+2 phase VRM. It gives you out of the box clock speeds of 1060 MHz core, 1124 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.20 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory, compared to NVIDIA-reference clocks of 980 MHz core, 1033 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory. The card features 2 GB of memory. Its cooler uses two large aluminum fin stacks that dissipate heat from the GPU, drawn by five heat pipes; and ventilated by a trio of 80 mm fans. The fans are suspended on a die-cast metal shroud that's easily detachable by pulling out a few thumb-screws, to clean the fans and underlying heatsinks. Although there's nothing to cool on the reverse side of the PCB, Inno3D dropped in a back-plate anyway. Inno3D didn't reveal global launch plans, but in China, the card should retail for 1,799 RMB (US $294).
