We reported earlier this month that NVIDIA's upcoming mid-range GPU, the GeForce GTX 960, will be unveiled at CES2015 next week. However word now comes from well-know leak site Hermitage Akihabara of a possible market date - January 22nd.

The best information currently available indicates that the GTX 960 will be based on the same Maxwell architecture seen most recently in the GTX 970 and 980. However whilst these are built around the GM204 a GTX 960 will have the GM206 at its core, a slightly cut down design with fewer shaders and narrower memory bus.

Perhaps unsurprisingly less is known about the exact specifications of the GTX 960. One reasonably concrete assumption is that the reference design will feature just one 6-pin PCI-E connector, indicating a TDP of up to just 150W. Despite this, it should perform roughly on a par with the Kepler-based GTX 770 and hence easily supplant the GTX 760 it will replace.
