  1. Nvidia is reportedly set to finally expand its Kepler-based GPU lineup beyond the current high end offerings (and a lone $99 GeForce GT 640). Similar to the GTX 670, the GTX 660 Ti would be based on the GK104 core architecture…

    good, maybe the 560 ti drops in price and I can SLI my system.

    I have a 448 core wondering whether I should upgrade. Meh.

    That probably wouldn't be much of an upgrade. I sure wouldn't make such a small jump, unless I needed to purchase another card for some reason.
     
  5. I'll be upgrading from my 460 for the 660/660 ti.

    Sweclockers are confirming launch date as 16th August. With virtually the same specification (same shader count, same clocks) as the GTX 670 for $100 less, the GTX 660Ti looks like the value card. Presumeably this also leaves room for a cut down shader 660 (non-Ti) in future.

    Well if that's the case then that's seriously good value and pretty much renders the 7850/7870 obsolete unless AMD cut their prices. However I have a very hard time believing the 660Ti will have the same number of shaders and clock speed as the 670.

    Sorry about the bump.
    Review at Tweaktown. If the card is final reference clocks then the EVGA card I linked to above must be the factory OC'ed version. 915MHz core, 980MHz boost, 6008MHz effective memory, 1344 shaders (as per GTX 670). Back end looks like dropping from 4 ROP clusters x 8 * 32-bit (32ROP @ 256-bit) to 4 ROP clusters x 6 * 32-bit (24 ROP @ 192-bit) if my fading math skills are still working.
    Looks like it will be doing battle with the 7950 rather than the 7870.
    slh28 - I think the phrase is "seeing is believing" ;)

    Looks like we have a new performance/price winner!
    Only game where the memory bandwidth really shows is Metro but even then it's still pretty close to the more expensive 7950.

    192 bit memory? No, thanks, I'll keep my 560Ti.

    same here, im hoping the 560ti price falls so I can go SLI
