The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 is based on the latest GK106 core architecture codenamed “GK106-400-A2″. The GPU packs 960 Cuda Cores, 80 TMUs, 24 ROPs and a 2GB GDDR5 memory running across a 192-bit wide interface. Clocks are set at 980MHz base, 1033MHz Boost and 6.0GB/s memory speed.

Kepler GK106 further improves power efficiency and the board has a rated TDP of 140W, Power is provided through a single PCIe 6-Pin connector. The board includes a single goldfinger which allows 2-Way SLI compatibility and display outputs include Dual-DVI, HDMI and a Display port.

With NVIDIA’s 3D-Stereoscopic support, the GTX 660 can run upto four displays simultaneously at 2560×1600 resolution per monitor.
