Submission + - NVIDIA Launches Lower Cost Kepler, GeForce GTX 660 Round-Up: MSI, ZOTAC, GB (

MojoKid writes: "Today NVIDIA is announcing two more GeForce GTX 600 series graphics cards, but unlike their more expensive counterparts, the new GeForce GTX 660 and GeForce GTX 650 are based on two slightly different GPUs, the GK106 and GK107, respectively. The GK106 and GK107 are both based on Kepler, but they are scaled down in comparison to the more powerful GK104. They offer the same feature set but have fewer cores, texture units, and ROPs. NVIDIA's reference specifications call for a base GPU clock of 980MHz for the GeForce GTX 660, with a boost clock of 1033MHz and memory clock of 1502MHz (6008Mhz effective). The good news is these cards will retail somewhere in the neighborhood of $230 MSRP or so but with enough performance to play virtually any current DX11 title at 1080p resolution with high image quality"
