now that the flagship 680 is out, any word on the other cards in the 6xx series especially the 660?

More about : gtx 6xx release

Don't know...time to probe around I guess. I'm personally hoping that a GTX 660 or GTX 650 kicks around in the performance range of the 6850 with less wattage and about the same price...maybe it's a pipe dream.

according to this:

the 660 is equal to the 580.

but i dont know how reliable that is as the gtx 680 is $500 not $649 and it was already released, not on april 12th

I think that the 680 they released is actually the 670.

I agree...it wouldn't suprise me if they came out with a 690 or 685 before they hit the 780. I'll have to look into the 660 and 650. I can't afford the flagship GPUs. So for me the best bang for the buck in the $100 to $150 is best. So I'm hoping a 100w-120w GTX650 would be a better alternative to the HD 6850 that's $119 after rebate. Otherwise it's tough to beat.

well, the gpu in the gtx 680 is the gk-104, but the "110" is normally the top single gpu example, not the "104" or what ever. Nvidia has a developers conference coming up on the 16th of may, stay tuned, also they are going to talk about their new 7 billion transistor gpu.

the gtx680 (gk-104) has 3.5billion transistors, so does the new card use 2 of these current chips equalling 7billion transistors making it a gtx690 they are releasing, or are they breaking from their release formula of the last few years and releasing a standalone beast to sit ahead of the gtx680 and below the (for the purposes of this post) gtx690! ... we shall see.

hope this info helps in any way :pt1cable:
