Geforce GTX 660 Ti Specifications and Launch Date Rumored

By - Source: SweClockers | B 47 comments

Nvidia is set to release its next Kepler-base GPU, the GTX 660 Ti, on or around August 16th.

Information coming out of Swedish website SweClockers has Nvidia set to release its new Kepler-based GTX 660 Ti, replacing the GTX 560 Ti. We originally reported that the GTX 660 Ti would not hit the market until Q3, but now all signs point to an August 16th release. Nvidia could be using the upcoming GamesCom event as the stage to release its new card.

The GTX 660 Ti looks to be basically the same card as the GTX 670, except with 192-bit memory bus and a lower TDP of 150 W. It is based on the Kepler architecture with 1344 CUDA cores (192*7), and equipped with four video outputs (two DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort), and is powered via two 6-pin PCI Express connectors. We got an early glimpse of what a stock Evga GeForce GTX 660 Ti card looks like from a leaked image coming from Expreview.

    Car repairs? Futon? Reduction in the number of channels on your TV subscription?

    Lower TDP and crappier RAM (but still not horrible RAM). Will be interesting to compare this to the 7850...

    But ultimately, this will come down to price. If this thing goes for 300, it is still a no go.

    Wait... Same amount of CUDA cores (as 670) ? hmm Sounds like it'll be a valiant performer. I hope its priced well!

    I believe its already on presale for 300$ . I'm making a big assumption that this is the reference model so the aftermarket models should be at least 310$. its not challenging the 7850, its challenging the performance of the 7870 as well as the 7950.

    hopefully the rumored 650Ti will have a more sane pricetag

    TBH I'm really more interested in the GTX 660. Hopefully the pricing will be sub 250$ or force the 7850 to come down in price.

    I figured this news will be on Tom's in no time.

    The GTX 660 Ti is looking quite capable, though no benchmarks are available...though, with Kepler, I think NVidia has systematically locked down the $500, $400 price segments, and the $300 price segment will most likely follow.

    I stand corrected. Reading the tweaktown benchmark now.

    My worries are about the success of the 670 as it reaches the level of the 680 for 100 bucks less. Making the 670 the go to card when the 680 does not off much more for 100 bucks. How does this card fit in? At 300 bucks it will need to deal with the likes of the 7870 and cause the gtx 570 to drop in price a good bit.

    So:

    680: 500
    670: 400
    660ti: 300

    Where do the prices on the 580 and 570 go?
