    Very disappointed with this Nvidia card. The performance same level with my GigaByte 660Ti OC. Wait for AMD 3xx generation instead

    Sub 280x performance, less vram, more expensive. Are they kidding?

    Sometimes it can´t even beat the gtx760 :eek3:

    :thumbdown

    I´m glad I spent my gpu upgrade money in a monitor, flicker free and dps is much more worthy than this turd.

    One of the worst cards nvidia have ever made.

    Thorough reviews, well done! I can't agree on the recommendations though.

    Looks like a bad product refresh for the sake of just having a refresh. Sometimes slower than what it is replacing, and more expensive! 2gb is also pointless at this point, maybe for htpc if it was a lot cheaper.

    Pass...

    Yeah..

    In SLI it barely beats stock 780TI, sometimes not even that.

    Failure as the best.

    On BF4 this card,112GB/s-128bit,is bellow than R9 280-285.
    Well this "new" card is made it to beat the R9 280-285,maybe on power/watt because on performance not a chance.

    Good failures you made nvidia.They live in the milky way land. :D

    This isn't actually a refresh. It's a new product. GM206 (GTX960) is replacing GK106 (GTX660).

    In other sites it also falls behind the gtx760 in AC Unity and Hitman. :giggle2:
    128bit definitely hurting in some scenarios or games... not to mention 2gb.

    I was actually gonna consider getting this card.
    What a joke this one is.
    Id be better off buy a 760 at this point.
    I traded off my HD 7950 as one had died and am on an unlocked HD 6950 2GB right now.
    Guess Ill just spend $200 and get a R9 290.
