The recent GPU-Z screenshot of the upcoming GTX 560 made us ask around and we can now report that the mentioned specifications are on target, i.e. those are the same that we heard from our sources. The new "GTX 560" is based on GF114 GPU that we already wrote about here, has 384 CUDA cores and should launch sometime in January.
Nvidia's new mid-range card has 384 Stream Processors and runs at 820MHz for the GPU, 1640MHz for shaders and 4000MHz for 1024MB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. The GTX 560 name isn't carved in stone and although partners are internaly refering to it as the GTX 560, Nvidia didn't officially announce the name and the card could easily become the GTX 570 SE for that matter.
Of course, these specs are what partners got from Nvidia. Unfortunately, the card is scheduled for January next year so we'll have to wait a while before we can talk about concrete information. You can check out the original GPU-Z screenshot here.
