GeForce GTX 660 and 650 Ti PCB Pictured
Even though the picture has been pixelated to such a high level (we can almost count them), we are still able to get some details from it.
First noticeable changes in comparison to GTX 670 board, there is a single SLI connector and a single power connector. This PCB will also be slightly shorter than actual GTX 670 board, its quite possible that most of the non-reference coolers will be actually larger than this board. Power section is located on the rear of the card, where we can assume it’s a 4+2 phase design.
When we focus on the bracket with display outputs, then we will notice that there’s no revolution there. Card will likely use the same outputs as GTX 680, GTX 670 and GTX 660 TI – two DVI’s, HDMI and DisplayPort.
PHK has also commented earlier reports about GTX 650 Ti specs. As we know both cards, GTX 650 Ti and GTX 660 will feature GK106 GPU. We were expecting the GTX 660 to have more CUDA cores than GTX 650 Ti, but as it turned out they might have the same number of them. GeForce GTX 660 will have 960 CUDA cores and only 1.5 GB or 2GB of ram (192-bit interface).
