"According to our sources, NVIDIA is planning to announce price cut on the recently launched GeForce GTX 660 Ti. The price cuts would be announced after the launch of GeForce GTX 650 and GTX 660 on September 13th. The GeForce GTX 660 Ti which currently costs $299 would be first brought down to $279 mark and $315 for overclocked models respectively."

Channel reports GTX660ti sales very sluggish
"Yesterday, we spoke with a couple of influential UK resellers and they were both of the same opinion, ‘The GTX 670 is a killer of a card, sales of the initial GTX660 Ti have been very sluggish and there’s no reason to expect the slower (non-Ti) GTX660 to do any better’."

IMO, it's because its priced Nvidia fux'd up. The 660 is simply too close to the 670, which is arguably the best card this generation for non-overclockers. My advice is to swiftly take advantage of the gaffe.

Niether of your links seem to work... but I believe this and this are what was intended...

Sales are sluggish because $300 is too high for a "mainstream" card.... the 460 did well because it was priced right & performed well for a mainstream card. The 660Ti has the performance, but not the price...

$279 would be nice, but $259 would be better... though the best single overclocked GTX660Ti is already on sale for $299.99, so a $315 price point on OC cards is still high IMO. I'd be interested to see if the other part holds true... "By Q1 2013, we would see another price drop which would result in a new price of $239 on reference and $279 on factory overclocked models." $239 would make the 660Ti one hell of a sweet card...

Ghostery be damned!

You can get the DirectCUII 7870 for $223 with Sleeping Dogs and free shipping. The problem with the 660Ti is that it's performance is so inconsistent. It's good in BF3 and WOW but then in some games it's barely faster than a GTX570/6970 and slower than a 7870....

What is a red fleg to me about the 660Ti is that once you raise the resolution 1 level up and compare the performance to 670/7950, the performance takes a bigger dive. I just can't see how this card will handle next generation games unless they will all be based on Frostbite 2.0 or coded specifically to run better on Kepler Crysis 3
