The rumor mill already foretold the arrival of the GeForce GTX 560, a lower-specced sibling of the GTX 560 Ti, earlier this month. Now, the people at Expreview claims to know exactly when Nvidia will set this newcomer loose upon the unsuspecting masses: May 17.
Expreview refers to that day as a launch date, so assuming there's any truth at all to the report, the card's actual retail debut might be a little bit farther off. That's about it for new information, unfortunately. The site goes on to reiterate the specifications it quoted a few weeks ago, leaving details like pricing undisclosed.
For what it's worth, the GeForce GTX 560 is rumored to feature an 800MHz or higher core clock speed, 336 stream processors, and 56 textures/clock of filtering power, otherwise mirroring the specifications of the quicker GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Nvidia could introduce the GTX 560 as a replacement to the venerable GeForce GTX 460—or at least as a replacement for some variants of it. Keep in mind e-tail stocks are still rife with the GTX 460 SE, GTX 460 768MB, GTX 460 1GB, and many versions of the 1GB model come with higher clock speeds.
