MSI has announced two new graphics cards, both part of the Gaming series of cards. While the cards 'may' only be GTX 660 cards with the last-generation's hardware, the idea is that they will put some extra options in the sub-$200 segment.
The cards are based on the GTX 660 design of which the GPUs carry 960 CUDA cores, 80 TMUs, 24 ROPs, as well as 2 GB of GDDR5 memory that runs over a 192-bit memory interface. One of the cards is an overclocked variant that features clock speeds of 1033 MHz core and 1098 MHz boost. The other is a card that runs at reference speeds, running at 980 MHz base and 1033 MHz boost. They will be known as the 'Lite' edition and the 'OC' edition. Both of the cards feature the Twin Frozr IV cooler with the red 'Gaming' series design.
MSI gave no word on availability or pricing, however, as mentioned, the cards will be competitively priced.
