Nvidia GTX 660 Ti Detailed, Launch Date Leaked to the Web

Paul Lilly

It seemed like a foregone conclusion that Nvidia's GeForce GTX 660 Ti would be based on the GPU maker's 28nm Kepler architecture, and lest there was any lingering doubt, a Swedish overclocking site got its hands on a spec sheet that seemingly confirms as much. If the information is correct, the GTX 660 Ti is essentially a GTX 670 card with a narrower memory bus (192-bit versus 256-bit).

Other specs Sweclockers.com revealed include:

  • GPU: GK104
  • CUDA Cores: 1,344
  • Base Frequency: 915MHz
  • Boost Frequency: 980MHz
  • Memory: 2GB GDDR5
  • Memory Frequency: 6,008MHz
  • TDP: 150W

Those specs are nearly identical to the GTX 670, save for the TDP, which is 20W lower on the GTX 660 Ti. Memory bandwidth is also lower as a result of the narrowed bus width, which drops from 192.2GB/s (GTX 670) to 144.19GB/s (GTX 660 Ti).

According to Sweclockers.com, the reference model doesn't introduce any design deviations. The GTX 660 Ti is a two slot card with a pair of DVI ports, HDMI output, and a DisplayPort. It's powered by two 6-pin PCI-E connectors.

No word yet on price, though the release date is said to be August 16, 2012.
