Florida-based Origin PC announced on Thursday the availability of Nvidia's GeForce GTX 660 Ti GPU in its lineup of desktops for gamers, enthusiasts, artists and professionals. According to the company, the new graphics chip represents the ultimate "sweet-spot" for all customers looking to upgrade or purchase the latest graphics cards on the market today.
"Origin PC is thrilled to be an official launch partner for another great Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics card." says Kevin Wasielewski, CEO/Co-Founder of Origin PC. "Increased performance with better power efficiency is just amazing, and adding the ability for 3-way SLI easily makes the GeForce GTX 660 Ti the best value of any card on the market and quite possibly any graphics card ever made."
Origin PC offers three desktops featuring the GeForce GTX 660 Ti: the full sized "Customization Is King" Genesis rig starting at $1,885, the mid-sized "Years Ahead of the Competition" Millennium rig starting at $1,238, and the small- form factor "Shock and Awesome" Chronos rig starting at $1,278. A single GeForce GTX 660 Ti adds an extra $220 to the final cost; $561 for two and $902 for three (quad not available).
Nvidia announced the availability of its GeForce GTX 660 Ti GPU earlier today, saying that it's a dramatic upgrade for anyone playing on previous-generation graphics technology. Based on the 28-nm Kepler architecture -- aka the "world's fastest" and most efficient graphics architecture thus far -- the new GPU is 41-percent faster on average than the GTX 560 Ti from 2011, and 58-percent faster on average than the GTX 470 from 2010.
"In addition to providing impressive performance, the GTX 660 Ti is filled with features, such as full support for DirectX 11 tessellation, TXAA, and PhysX technologies and the ability to drive a 3+1 display configuration from a single card," Nvidia said. "Factor in the Kepler architecture's great efficiency and low thermal design power and the GTX 660 Ti assures gamers of having the most stable, quiet and power-efficient gaming experience possible in its price class."
In addition to Origin PC, Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 660 Ti GPU is available now from add-in card suppliers including ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Point of View, PNY, Sparkle and Zotac. For a limited time, gamers who purchase a GTX 660 Ti GPU from a participating retailer or e-tailer will receive a voucher for a free copy of Gearbox Software's Borderlands 2, which is launching next month, Nvidia said.
