NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Launch Slated for Mid-August?
According to Sweclockers, the NIVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti is rumored to be launched in mid-August this year, with a MSRP of US$299. The card is expected to compete directly with the AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition.
The Swedish website also revealed that the GeForce GTX 660 Ti will reportedly have 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory with a 192-bit interface. Its clock speeds for its memory chips as well as the GPU itself are not known for now.
The GeForce GTX 660 Ti is similar to the GeForce GTX 670 as they share the same GK104 GPU and feature the same number of Stream processing units, 1344 in total. However, the former will feature less onboard video memory and its memory interface is about 33% lower than the 256-bit DDR memory bus of the GeForce GTX 670.
