For an immediate relief from the market-threat looming in the sub-$200 segment with the introduction of AMD's Radeon HD 7770, NVIDIA is planning to carve out a new SKU based on the 40 nm GF114 GPU, the GeForce GTX 560 SE.
The new SKU will be positioned below the GeForce GTX 560 (non-Ti), and target price-points well within $200. The new SKU is identical to the OEM-only model GeForce GTX 555. Its specifications follow:
- Based on 40 nm GF114 ASIC
- 288 CUDA cores
- 48 TMUs, 24 ROPs
- 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface
- 1 GB standard memory amount (asymmetric memory chip arrangement à la GTX 550 Ti)
- Clock speeds: 776 MHz core; 1553 MHz CUDA cores; 952 MHz (3.828 GHz effective) memory, 92 GB/s memory bandwidth
