Nvidia seems to be in a roll since the launch of its Fermi based 400 series graphics cards. And with the 600 series, things get even better. Ever since the launch of their 28nm GK104 and GK107 GPUs, the green team won laurels in both desktop and mobile design, of many that were unveiled at the Computex 2012 yesterday.
Now there is good news for all of you waiting to hear about Nvidia’s GTX 660. Our sources have confirmed that the GTX 660 will be using the same GK104 chip as in the GTX 670 and the GTX 680.
Only this variant would be the most affordable variant among them. Images leaked from MSI confirm of a third GK104 installment so we can confirm this as well that the new GTX 660 will not include the Ti branding this time.
We even ourselves came up with a mock up of how the GTX 660 might look like when it’s launched as you can see the image on top.
Furthermore, VideoCardz.com managed to get hold of the specification details of a new desktop Acer is launching known as the Predator G3620 that featured Nvdia’s GTX 660 in its specifications that also confirmed the GTX 660 will be a 1.5 GB graphics card. Here’s the exact quote from the page:
NVIDIA GTX 660 1.5 GB – Ultra-fast graphics card with 1536 MB of dedicated video memory and support for DirectX 11. Play heavy graphics-intensive games and watch high-definition movies and edit photos with high resolution.
Furthermore, this image confirms the card will feature two DVI and a mini HDMI port in terms of display output.
With the Predator launch to be 25th June, either that day the GTX 660 launches or earlier. So in the next 2 weeks expect to see the card’s press images going to media partners.
