GTX 660Ti Rumors Confirmed By Leaked Review

Last week, additional information leaked about the upcoming Kepler-based NVIDIA GTX 660 Ti graphics card. Those rumors suggested that the GPU would be very similar to the one found in existing GTX 670 (which we recently reviewed).

We speculated that the GTX 660 Ti could be an awesome card, assuming the price was right. While we do not have any pricing information–the best guess from rumors is that it is in the $300 to $400 range–as a result of Tweaktown breaking the release date, we now know that the latest rumors were true.

The GTX 660Ti will feature 1344 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory on a 192-bit memory bus. This puts the GTX 660 Ti very close to the current 670 in terms of potential performance. According to the leaked benchmarks, that seems to be the case. The GTX 660 Ti is only a couple of frames behind the GTX 670 in Just Cause 2 and Dirt 3, for example. Considering this card is likely to use a bit less power and cost less, it is shaping up to be a rather desirable card. If this ends up being on the low end of the $300-400 range (rumors suggest otherwise, however), I suspect many gamers are going to opt for this new Kepler card rather than the more expensive and only very slightly faster GTX 670.

What do you think about the GTX 660 Ti, is the card you were hoping for?

considering Nvidia is giving us what they wanna give us I think this will be a worthy successor to the 560 ti

If its in the high $300s I'll be looking for a new card elsewhere.

as the other guy said if it over 300$ then i'll go for the 7850.

This card will only rock if it targets the same price point as its predessor (GTX 560 Ti), which comes in at ~$250.00 if its over 300.00, then its WAY to close to the GTX 670...

And the downside to NVIDIA taking a GPU from what was designed to be the Mid range, and tweaking it down, sadly you can only tweak it down so much before heat/power/performance all take a nose dive.

If this card ends up more than 300, looks like gamers sweet spot for the GTX 600 series will be the GTX 660...

It seems like the hd 7950 might be more future proof (not that anything is close to future proof), but it should last longer in terms of the games it can handle. The higher memory bandwidth will allow for higher resolutions (which I personally don't need) and being able to run higher AA. I like AA so I might opt for a used 7950 if the GTX 660ti is over $300. I'm thinking it will probably be around $250 because that's about what the gtx 560ti launched at.

Your source link for the article links back to yourself. I wonder if you guys did that on purpose.
