Rumor: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti To Release August 13th-19thMon, Jul 16, 2012 - 1:55 PM
It seems that NVIDIA is finally going to release the GeForce GTX 660 Ti sometime in August. It is expect at some point between August 13th and 19th, but it could very well be Thursday August 16th or the 14th as previous Kepler GPUs have up till now launched on Tuesdays or Thursdays. The GTX 660 Ti, as we previously reported, is expected to be a GK104 powered mid-range GPU, with 1334 CUDA cores, 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory on a 192-bit bus. The card is expected to use just one 6-pin PCIe power connector, as well as a short PCB. The fact this GPU should be releasing finally has been given further credence as the newest version of GPU-Z has now added support for GTX 660 among others. All things considered, if this rumor is more fact than fiction we will see a true mid-range GPU from NVIDIA’s Kepler architecture that should arrive in August and come priced around $300. A further scaled down GTX 660 with 1152 CUDA cores may also be in the works and could release in August as well, but as with all rumors take this information with a grain of salt until we get samples for review.
According to Nvidia’s programming, the Geforce GTX 660 Ti is introduced in the middle of next month, that is, sometime between 13 and 19 August. It is time for the important start of school, when students upgrade for the upcoming fall semester.
