GeForce GTX 960A 

Released March, 2015
  • 1 GHz
  • 2 GB GDDR5

That is, unless it's a third-party card with higher clock speeds and a more elaborate cooling system.

The site is calling this an overclock, but it's still likely that the core would have a faster clock speed than the GTX 970 and 980.

In The News From around the web

If it's for both the GPU and display, I would still wait.
If you can wait it out, I would really suggest you do as it's not only going to be great when it comes to new GPUs - but the older video cards should drop in price, too.
Based on a tweet from AMD PR dude Antal Tungler, a PC from Falcon Northwest at the VRLA convention was utilizing a dual-GPU Fiji graphics card to power some demos.
One theory floating around inside the offices here is that AMD is going to release the Fury X2 along with the VR headsets coming out this spring, with hopes of making it THE VR graphics card of choice.
My current system is a 2500k and GTX 670, so the upgrade bug is biting hard, but i can also wait, as the Rift and the HTC Vibe wont really be widely available until the Summer.
On the other hand, if you needed to (or anyone else reading this) buy something now, then the price drop on the R9 Nano has been a great thing, and good timing.
Next-gen GPUs won't be here for at least 3-4 more months, and they will be expensive.
I would be happy with recommending the GTX 980 for 4K gaming, but I would recommend pushing the details down a little.
