    Odd, I would have thought that a GTX 960Ti would have been more useful to fill the void between the 960 and the 970.

    I was thinking the same thing. Actually, I had to reread the header to make sure it wasn't a 960 Ti that was mentioned.

    Despite 'we lied about the memory' issue, Nvidia continues to sell all the 970's it can make, so why weaken demand for them with a lower price, lower profit margin card.

    Re: Nvidia preparing GeForce GTX 950 and 950 Ti, says report

    I've read elsewhere that, in using a GM206 core, any GTX950 may end up requiring a 6-pin power connection, which would surely be a step back from the PCIe power only GM107? They'd have to halve the power requirement of GM206 to hit the GTX 750 Ti's TDP...

    The lower clocks and boost control probably keep the power use well down for the 950. Might use a touch more power than the 750 but be a quite a bit faster.

    I wonder how much faster it will be in the end, all depends on how much they cut back GM206 I suppose. Rumour is that the 750/750Ti will continue on though, so the 6-pin 'problem' wouldn't be so much of an issue.

    Is it some kind of typo? The 750Ti isn't all that old, maybe it should be a different chip?

    Sorry, it's a term going back to something historical that used to be called a printed book or document-
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typographical_error
    A typographical error (often shortened to typo) is a mistake made in the typing process (such as a spelling mistake) of printed material.

    Indeed. What, are you claiming, is the typographical error in your question "is it some kind of a typo?"?

    The reference to 750Ti may be a typo. Perhaps it should have referenced a different chip.

    So you mean the "the successors to the GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti" is perhaps a typo?

    I think 18 months is a fairly long time for a card to be around these days, so I don't think it's a typo.

    I think he is referring to the last sentence in the third paragraph, "To compete effectively Nvidia is expected to price the GTX 750(Ti) cards at around $150 while obviously keeping far enough away from the $200 region that its GTX 960 sells for." It looks like it should be the 950(Ti) and not 750(Ti) there.
