GeForce GTX 660 specs released

Graphics chip maker NVIDIA has detailed the specs for a forthcoming GeForce GTX 660 card over on its website, surprising some of us with the news that the follow up to the GTX 660Ti will be OEM only. That means you won’t be able to branded versions in the shops as upgrades, you’ll only be able to grab one as part of a new PCs.

Looking at the specs, the question is whether or not you’d want to.

Graphics card manufacturer NVIDIA has launched its mid-range Kepler chips, henceforth to be known as GeForce GTX 660Ti. Variations at different clockspeeds will be on sale from all the usual board partners today, and reviews should be hitting the web as you read.

Of all the graphics cards released this year, NVIDIA’s 660 series is the one I’ve been looking forward to the most. Ever since I first laid eyes on the company’s new Kepler architecture for GTX 6xx cards, this is the card I've been waiting for. The firm's 670 and 680 chips dominate at the more expensive end of the GPU market, and everything about those two has suggested that the 660s would leave AMD’s mid-range HD78xxs in the dust.

Purveyor of graphics chips NVIDIA has followed up on the launch of its GeForce GTX 680 with the second card in the 6-series, the GeForce GTX 670. On the face of it, the two cards are almost identical: both are based on the same Kepler design GK104 chip, with 2GB of GDDR5 memory running on a 256bit bandwidth bus.

That GK104 is, in both cases, produced on the same 28nm process, and the only real difference is that the GTX 670 has 1344 CUDA cores activated compared to the GTX 680's 1536. Plus, of course, it's a bit cheaper. Since we decided the GTX 680 was good but overkill for most people's needs, is the 670 a better bet?
