  • The reference cooler is very similar to the previously launched GeForce 10 series cards such as the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070. There are a few differences as the card uses both metal and plastic frames colored in silver and black.

    From the looks of it, the GeForce GTX 1060 will stick to a really short PCB while the cooler will extend beyond the length of the PCB. The blower style cooler is still present on the card which channels cool air through a dense aluminum fin array block which unlike the 1080 and 1070 cannot be seen through the window cut on top of the shroud which doesn’t feature acrylic materials.

  • The NVIDIA GeForce 9 series of graphics cards has finally arrived! Today, NVIDIA is announcing the GeForce 9600 GT video card and while it may not be as anticipated as previous generations, it still marks a significant turning point. Usually, a new series is kicked off by the fastest card in the bunch, but this time around NVIDIA is launching the GeForce series at the heart of the discrete graphics market, the $169-189 price range. For that price range, NVIDIA believes the GeForce 9600 GT is the right choice for consumers. Today we will see if that is really true by comparing it directly to what ATI has to offer.

    The GeForce 9600 GT is an PCI Express 2.0 graphics card that is powered by the G94 core which can be seen above. The core is labeled G94-300-A1 and was made the first week of 2008. The DirectX 10 ready core is built on the 65nm process and features 64 stream processors. The GeForce 9600 GT will be above the 8600 GTS and below the 8800 GT in terms of both price and performace. The GeForce 9600 GT also has new enhancements to NVIDIA PureVideo HD making it ideal for use in home theater applications. The recommended minimum power supply for GeForce 9600 GT graphics cards is 400 watts with a +12V rating of 26 Amps for a single card, so make sure your system power supply can handle it.

    People often ask, “what is the difference between the “Ti” version of a GPU and its regular version?” The answer is that the "Ti" version is built for higher performance. In the case of the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, this difference in performance is considerable. This is because under the hood, the GeForce GTX 650 and 650 Ti are powered by different chips; the GeForce GTX 650 uses the GK107 chip, whereas the GeForce GTX 650 Ti uses the beefier GK106 chip. Compared to the GTX 650, the GTX 650 Ti has twice as many CUDA Cores, faster memory, and higher memory bandwidth, resulting in a 40% average increase in game performance between the two.

At the same time, Nvidia announced , a screen capture solution that used an integrated H.264 encoder built into the Kepler architecture that Nvidia had not revealed previously. It could be used to record gameplay without a capture card, and with negligible performance decrease compared to software recording solutions, and was available even on the previous generation GeForce 600 series cards. The software beta for ShadowPlay, however, experienced multiple delays and would not be released until the end of October 2013. A week after the release of the GTX 780, Nvidia announced the GTX 770 to be a rebrand of the GTX 680. It was followed by the GTX 760 shortly after, which was also based on the GK104 core and similar to the GTX 660 Ti. No more 700 series cards were set for release in 2013, although Nvidia announced G-Sync, another feature of the Kepler architecture that Nvidia had left unmentioned, which allowed the GPU to dynamically control the refresh rate of G-Sync-compatible monitors which would release in 2014, to combat tearing and judder. However, in October, AMD released the R9 290X, which came in at $100 less than the GTX 780. In response, Nvidia slashed the price of the GTX 780 by $150 and released the GTX 780 Ti, which featured a full 2880-core GK110 core even more powerful than the GTX TITAN, along with enhancements to the power delivery system which improved overclocking, and managed to pull ahead of AMD's new release.
