Interesting... I'm a bit curious why they didn't push prices down even further. There are several overclocked 7950s available at the $330 price point, so this seems like it will go more head-to-head with the 7870 & 7950 rather than put crazy pressure on AMD.

Amazing how much this has improved over the 560ti, though.

It's Up already on Toms, and it's not interesting anymore.

But it didn't shine like the GTX 670 did.

^ too right it didnt, at the price its being sold for you'd be crazy not to just get the superior 670. As i said earlier disappointed.
August 16, 2012 3:31:02 PM

Yeah like I expected. A weaker version of the GTX 670.

i think the card are fine as it is. i know many people were hoping price to drop more but IMO nvidia will only drop the price if the their line up does not profit enough.

Prices showed up on newegg at $300, so the reviews were a bit off. Custom cards at $300 are a decent deal.

$300 for non reference is much better than I expected, but none of the newegg listings have the free copy of Borderlands 2.

I talked to customer service. They said go to the promo page and click on the "Buy Now" button. If it comes up, it gets the free game. I did not spend the time to cross reference to see if it was all models or not.

$300 for non reference?

thats much cheaper than in the uk--thats about £190

first non reference ones i have seen are around the £260 to £270 mark--thats about $420

unless my maths or conversion rates are wrong?

though you do get the free copy of Borderlands 2 for that price

Don't forget VAT and import taxes.

In my country the difference between a GTX 660TI and a 670 are about 50 euros.

Here in Canada, non-reference GTX-660Ti graphics cards cost $300 to $330 (not including tax or shipping.) Non-reference GTX-670 graphics cards on the other hand cost anywhere between $400 and $470 (not including tax or shipping.)

Yep. When i saw it would be 300 dollars i just assumed it would be around 200 in the uk. Obviously not!

Its an okay card, though the new reviews confirms my thought that I can not tryst tweak towns reviews, as most reviewers results are slightly more different.(mostly because TT has a horrible catalog of games to test)


IMO, regardless on outcome, the 7000 series needs to drop in price. with the 7850 to 230(FS) 7870 to 270 and 7950 to 320/330(which the MSI one was about a month ago free shipping)
August 16, 2012 6:23:49 PM

Yeah I was pretty disappointed in the 660ti. I bought a 550ti just to hold me off till this came out, but now I don't think it is worth the price.

Edit: $300 isn't that bad, I'll have to check out newegg.
August 16, 2012 6:24:11 PM

looks like uk prices are 25% or more higher in the uk than the usa

been looking at a gtx670 for a while now but cant justify upgrading from a gtx570 when the gigabyte gtx670 i want is

£329 or $518 us


maybe i could get a friend to bring me one back from the usa by taking it out of the box and putting some dust on it ;) 

no import duty or vat on used items is there :D

Doesn't mean Toms review is correct i am not sure who is right all review sites are saying different things :pt1cable:  confusing to say the least :(

the problem with all sites is that some people are reading them wrong. The review on Techpowerup says that stock 7950 is better than stock 660ti at 1920x1080 and higher resolutions(some people are using relative performance at all resolutions, which playing at 1280x800 resolution at this price range gpu is pretty laughable). People are inclined to look at Overclocked cards vs stock version of all the other cards. techpowerup review in question

then we also have the anandtechs review You have to compare the 7950 stock to the 660ti stock. dont pay attention to the aftermarket versions as they are not exactly the cards in question to compare reference 7950s and reference 660tis

if you go by that matter, the results are close enough. people are simply reading reviews wrong.

Too Frustrating.

That's the trick, Toms used factory overclocked cards and downclocked them.
According to Hardwarecauncks
Quote:
THe GTX 660 Ti used in the following tests is an EVGA Superclocked version that has received a BIOS flash with reference specifications. Unfortunately, downclocking a Kepler-based pre-overclocked card WILL NEVER result in performance that replicates a reference design as the only way of modifying the base clock is through a modified BIOS

toms did 2 tests, one with factory settings on reference stats, and one at stock settings i believe(or was it just leaving on turbo boost).
