Rumors are pouring in about NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 760 launch date. It is believed that the budget GTX 700 series graphics card will be released on either June 25th which is Tuesday or June 27th which is Thursday. Previously, GTX 760 was expected to launch in mid-June but it was delayed for some reason. Speculation is that the delay is caused by the AIB partners who were not yet prepared to bring the new card in to the market.
There can be two reasons behind the delay caused by the AIB partners. One, according to some sources GTX 760 will be a rebrand of GTX 670 with faster core and memory clocks, manufacturers would want to wait for GTX 670’s stock to be sold first so they are not left with huge quantities of GTX 670s smiling at the retail shelves and not being sold. Secondly, the world has seen the best of technology in the past 15 days with Computex 2013 and E3 2013, both events introduced many new innovations by companies all around the world. Working on new products and design might be another reason for the delay caused by the AIB partners since they had so much work on their hands already.
Specifications of GeForce GTX 760 did not surface the web yet but a roadmap leaked in May 2013 revealed just the basic specifications. GTX 670 will be replaced by GTX 760 Ti while GTX 760 will replace GTX 660 Ti. Both GPUs will equip GK104-225 chip, so far everything on the leaked roadmap has been true so it is more likely that GTX 760 will be a slower and cheaper model compared to GTX 670. Do keep in mind that GTX 760 Ti will be released later, the successor to GTX 670. There is no official word about GeForce GTX 760 as yet, but we will keep you guys updated.
