Nvidia is doing quite a good job at salvaging the partially dysfunctional Kepler GPUs, but for the mid- to low-end markets such a chip is not quite fitting. Therefore, the company is preparing to launch the rumored GK107 GPU that will power the more affordable graphics adapters.
GTX 650 reference design will reportedly
be powered by the new GK107 Kepler-based design from Nvidia.
The new card will pack 384 CUDA cores and will have to work with a tight 128-bit memory
’s GT 640 video cards, the GTX 650 will come with fast GDDR5 memory, but if this report is true, budget gamers will be quite disappointed to see that GTX 650 is very similar, if not the same, with a GT 640 with GDDR5 VRAM.
The rumored launch date is September 17, which is quite a bit later than many would have expected.
