Nvidia's GeForce GTX 660 Ti Surfaces on Retail Site

A Swedish retailer posted a pre-order opportunity of the Asus GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II graphics card hinting to a price of just under $400 for this card.

Based on Kepler architecture, the 660 Ti will run on 1,344 cores and integrate 2 GB of GDDR5 memory using a 192-bit memory bus (with 144.2 GB/s bandwidth). The card is nearly identical in its specs to the GTX 670 (which has a 256-bit memory interface with 192.2 GB/s bandwidth), which sells in the $400 neighborhood as well, but we expect the new card to use less power and distance itself in price. The price mentioned on the Swedish site may be a pit premature and optimistic. A $350 target for volume cards seems more realistic to us, but we'll find out soon.

    "sigh" That probably means the regular 660 won't even be close to the $200-250 sweet-spot. And just when I'm about ready to throw my money at Nvidia, too! Hopefully this isn't true.

    this contradicts the macmalls 300$ mark, the 400$ maybe a placeholder value or something.

    And just like that all of the rumors of the legendary $300 gpu are gone. No single gpu to rule the price/performance ratio.
    But hey, because you waited so long for the card, why not buy it anyways?
    Well done nvidia. This is a great example of manipulative marketing at its finest.

  • I have a friend whos dad used to work at pny. When the pny version of the 660 ti comes out I could problably get it for $150. His dad gets over 50% off as a discount. I was thinking of getting the 670 but my power supply is 550 watts and has a max of 30 amps; not enough to power it. I hope the 660 is lighter on the power and could run on lower than top of the line currents.

    i would buy 670 if it only 50$ different. on some mem heavy bandwidth games, there is 20% performance hit. but 670 to 680 is still perfect, only 2-5% hit. so yeah,, 256bit is still a matter.
