Asus has revealed its GeForce GTX 660 Ti Dragon graphics card, which much like the Dragon edition of the Radeon HD 7850, provides a distinct blue-accented design, moderate performance increases over the DirectCU II edition, and a slightly improved voltage regulator module (VRM).

The 660 Ti Dragon features a 1,150 MHz core clock, 2 GB of GDDR5 memory, a 192-bit memory interface, and a memory clock of 6,100 MHz. The card's cooling system seems functionally identical to Asus' GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II. TechPowerUp has speculated that it may feature a GPU electrical noise filter, similar to those found on MSI's GPU Reactor module.

Asus has stated that the GeForce GTX 660 Ti Dragon is primarily targeted towards the Greater China region and is unlikely to be officially released in Western Europe or North America.

    Considering that the CU II is clocked at 967 MHz, a 1150 MHz factory overclock is impressive.

    It's a shame that this card is reserved for the Asia markets.

    I bet they will rebrand it for the US. They are trying to be like MSI.

    1150 MHz out of the box? It must have a Turbo Boost of over 1200 MHz, which makes it the highest factory clocked card on the market (Asian market, that is).

    Reminds me of the MSI cards and motherboards with the Dragon images and advertised as gaming series hardware...and why is this ASUS card blue and why is the MSI stuff red? Shouldn't it be the other way? :p

    You wouldn't believe how well these stereotypical monikers are sold over in China. There are literally dragon versions of BMWs selling like hot cakes over there at huge taxed up prices, for example.
