Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti Not Coming Until Q3 '12?
Nvidia's GeForce GTX 660 Ti is now expected to hit the selves in Q3 '12 and not the previously expected May 10th, along with the GeForce GTX 670, according to reports.
With the release of the GeForce GTX 690 announced this past weekend and the GeForce GTX 670 expected to hit the selves on May 10th, Nvidia will not be releasing the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, as previously expected at the same time. Information coming out of Overclockers.co.uk has Andrew Gibson (Overclockers.co.uk) quoted as "660Ti, you have zero chance, its approx 6 months away........" There is no official word from Nvidia on the release of the GTX 660 Ti.
What information we do have on the GTX 660 Ti (though at this point still considered a rumor) is that it will feature 6 SMX clusters (1152 CUDA cores). This is two fewer than the GTX 680 and one fewer than the expected GTX 670. The GTX 660 Ti is expected to have an estimated price of around $249 at release, which would put it against the AMD Radeon HD 7800 series.
