NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 Ti Pictured
What you see is probably the first Kepler graphics card pictured with a reference cooler. Picture suggest that what we see is GeForce GTX 670 Ti, most likely based on GK104 graphics processing unit. What it means, the first card to be released on Kepler gpu will be GTX 670 Ti, not GTX 680.
As we might have expected, Chinese forums are always full of leaked information about upcoming graphics cards. It appears that the PCB that was pictured earlier is actually PCB of GeForce GTX 670 Ti, not GTX 680.
On the top right corner we can barely see 6+6 pin power connector which caused a lot of discussion. The rear panel is exactly the same as diagram and picture of PCB presented earlier. NVIDIA also decided to put their logo on the side of the card.
GeForce GTX 670 Ti is a card based on 28nm GK104 Kepler gpu. Card has 1536 CUDA cores, 128 texture and 32 raster operating units. It is equipped with 2GB of GDDR5 memory on 256-bit bus. This is the first NVIDIA card to support memory clock at 6GHz.
NVIDIA will most likely launch GeForce GTX 670 Ti on 12th March, official release should take place on 23rd March.
