You might at first be confused as to why NVIDIA is calling this Geforce GT 710 a “new” card. After all, it’s been on the market for more than two years now using two different architectures, namely Fermi (GF119) and Kepler (GF208). This “new” GT 710 is a higher-clocked rebrand of the GF208 model, equipped with 192 CUDA cores, 16 TMUs, 8 ROPs and between 1-2GB of DDR3 memory running at 900MHz. While this isn’t an exciting thing in the least, it is a sign that we’re probably moving to a new lineup of NVIDIA GPUs this year that finally bring the Maxwell architecture to the low-end parts. I’m not sure if that’s still going to be the Geforce 900 series though, because the current lineup is horribly disjointed, with the Geforce 700 series only meeting up halfway with the GTX 750 Ti.
