Are you ready for another entry to the confusing graphics market?  NVIDIA has you covered with the upcoming GeForce GTX 660 SE that will target the $180-200 market and hit the AMD Radeon HD 7870 1GB square in the jaw.  With the current lineup of GeForce cards that is the one area where NVIDIA is at an obvious disadvantage with the gap between the GTX 650 Ti and the GTX 660. 

As is usually the case, when a new graphics card is ready to hit the market, leaks occur in all directions.  Already we are seeing screenshots of specifications and benchmarks from PCEVA.  If the rumors are right you'll see the GTX 660 SE released in Q1 of 2013 with 768 CUDA cores, 24 ROPs and a 192-bit memory bus.  Interestingly, the GTX 660 SE will be based on GK106 and has the same core count as the GTX 650 Ti...the performance differences will be seen going from the 128-bit memory bus to 192-bit.

Current GPU-Z screenshots are showing a clock speed of 928 MHz with a Boost clock of 1006 MHz, running just about the same clock rates as the GTX 650 Ti (though the 650 series does not have GPU Boost technology enabled).  It also looks like the GTX 660 SE will use GDDR5 memory running 5.6 GHz and a 2GB capacity

With CES just around the corner (we are leaving in the morning!) we will ask around and see if anyone has more information about a solid price point and time frame for release!

Why someone would advertise clothes on a tech news post is beyond me.

so how will this compete with 7870? AFAIK the model it intended to compete with just have less VRAM (with chip specification are the same as the 2GB version) to drive the price down but for this 660 SE will cut it's SP count which definitely will cut it's performance as well.
