GeForce GTX 760 Last 700 Series SKU for 2013?

NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 760 could be the company's last GTX 700 series retail desktop SKU, at least for this year. A leaked slide by the company lays out how this year's three new GTX 700 series SKUs pretty much seal the product stack. It reveals that GeForce GTX TITAN will remain NVIDIA's flagship graphics card throughout the year. The thousand-dollar single-GPU card is based on the GK110 silicon, with 2,688 CUDA cores, and 6 GB of memory. The GeForce GTX 780, introduced this March, replaces the GeForce GTX 680 on the product-stack, even at its much higher launch price of $650, compared to its predecessor's $500. The GTX 780 has no competition from AMD at its price-point.

The slide also reveals that the GeForce GTX 770, which was launched late last month, will replace the GeForce GTX 670 from the stack. Based on the GK104 silicon, it features 1,536 CUDA cores, and 2 to 4 GB of memory. Given that it has a lot in common with the GeForce GTX 680, albeit with higher clock speeds, GPU Boost 2.0, its $400 pricing surprised us. The GeForce GTX 770 outperforms AMD's HD 7970 GHz Edition, and is generally priced on-par. The only definitively faster AMD card is the $1100 HD 7990 "Malta," which makes the GTX 770 the king of its segment.

ASUS GeForce GTX 660 Ti Dragon Graphics Card Pictured

ASUS readied its second "Dragon" branded performance graphics card, the first being last year's Radeon HD 7850 Dragon. These cards are typically a notch above DirectCU II OC models, in featuring a backplate, and slightly improved VRM.

The company's new GeForce GTX 660 Ti Dragon, pictured below, features out of the box clock speeds of up to 1150 MHz core, and 6.10 GHz memory. It features 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface. The card's cooling assembly is nearly identical to the company's DirectCU II, with the exception of blue accents, and a back-plate. From the looks of it, the card could feature a GPU electrical noise filter, similar in function to MSI GPU Reactor module. ASUS tells us that the card is specific to the Greater China region, it's unlikely to make it to western markets.

MSI Also Shows Off GeForce GTX 660 Ti Gaming Series Graphics Card

In addition to a trio of Z77 motherboards, MSI also showed off its first Gaming Series branded graphics card, the N660Ti PE Gaming Series. Based on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti, the card looks virtually identical to the GTX 660 Ti Power Edition, with a couple of purely cosmetic changes. The blue streak on the cooler shroud makes way for a red one, and the fan impellers bear the Gaming Series dragon-head decal. It features clock speeds identical to the OC variant, with 1019 MHz core, 1097 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory. It features 2 GB of memory across a 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface.


AMD to Fix GCN Latency Issues with Driver Updates

Last month, an investigative report by The TechReport found out that despite being faster, AMD's Radeon HD 7950 graphics card isn't "smoother" than NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti, in that shows signs of higher frame-delivery latency, a theory proven by high-speed camera recordings. Over the holiday, AMD's David Baumann responded in discussions around the web talking about the issue, in which he put AMD's stand.

Apparently, AMD Catalyst drivers still have refinement left in working perfectly with GPUs based on the Graphics CoreNext (GCN) architecture. Baumann explained that GCN, and AMD's older Very Long Instruction Word (VLIW) architectures feature fundamentally different memory management, and drivers that make the most of it are still a work in progress. Baumann stated "Over the early part of the year you'll see a few driver updates help this across a variety of games."

HD 7950 May Give Higher Framerates, but GTX 660 Ti Still Smoother: Report

The TechReport, which adds latency-based testing in its VGA reviews, concluded in a recent retrospective review taking into account recent driver advancements, that Radeon HD 7950, despite yielding higher frame-rates than GeForce GTX 660 Ti, has higher latencies (time it takes to beam generated frames onto the display), resulting in micro-stutter. In response to the comments-drama that ensued, its reviewer did a side-by-side recording of a scene from "TESV: Skyrim" as rendered by the two graphics cards, and slowed them down with high-speed recording, at 120 FPS, and 240 FPS. In slow-motion, micro-stuttering on the Radeon HD 7950 is more apparent than on the GeForce GTX 660 Ti.

AMD Readies "Tahiti" Based Radeon HD 7800 Series Product

AMD is reportedly working on a new performance-segment GPU in the Radeon HD 7800 series, based on the 28 nm "Tahiti" silicon (which goes into making HD 7900 series products). The so-called "Tahiti-LE" silicon could help AMD plug a hole between the HD 7870 GHz Edition and HD 7950, getting close to the performance-level of GeForce GTX 660 Ti, at a lower cost. According to a report, AMD is deciding against referring to the new chip as "HD 7930," since the 7900 series is already crowded with five models, and would rather name it something along the lines of "HD 7870 OC."

A similar approach was adopted by NVIDIA in the recent-past, when it created the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448-cores, using higher-end GF110 silicon to create an SKU traditionally based on GF114. At this time, one can only speculate what the new HD 7870 specifications sheet could look like. Since "Pitcairn" already achieves clock speeds in the 1 GHz range, AMD is left with other features to tinker with. 1536 GCN stream processors seem like a middle ground between the 1280 SP-laden HD 7870 "Pitcairn," and 1792 SP HD 7950. Memory bus width is another component. The new desktop SKU could launch in mid-November. The new SKU could even be a "limited-edition" for the winter shopping season, much like the GTX 560 Ti 448-core.
