The upgrade in the memory translates into 20% more bandwidth also thanks to the wider 384-bit memory bus. As a result, the GPU draws about 30W more power than the original version, which requires 320W. However, Nvidia is still recommending a 750W-rated power supply.

The new variant should be available starting today from select board partners but the pricing remains unknown.
