GPUs have always been an expensive component for a computer, and that is doubly true for gaming rigs. But with the release of the GeForce GTX 760, NVIDIA may have just taken some of the bite out of the next round of PC upgrades.
The GTX 760 is intended to replace the older GeForce GTX 660 Ti and offers a 12% speed boost compared to the older GPU. It has 1152 processing cores, offers 192 GB/s memory bandwidth, and includes NVIDIA's GPU Boost 2.0 to further increase clock speeds. The new graphics card will also feature software to limit fan noise and improve framerates on compatible monitors, as well as allowing Overvolting to push the card beyond recommended limits.
To further boost their new product, the American company has also introduced the GeForce Experience which provides an easy way to keep drivers optimized and recommending graphics settings for individual games based on each system configuration.
A large number of custom variants of the new GPU are available now from Asus, Evga, Galaxy, Gigabyte, MSI, PNY, and Zotac offering boost clocks from 1033 MHz to 1176 MHz, in 2 and 4 GB configurations. Prices start at US$249.
