GeForce GTX 660 3DMark11 Score Revealed
They released a screen-shot of the GPU-Z readings few days ago, but despite the number of CUDA cores and type of memory there’s not really much of information there. The GK106 GPU would be using 960 CUDA cores with 24 Raster Operating Units. The card would feature 2GB of GDDR5 memory operating on 192-bit interface. The memory bandwidth suggest that the memory is still clocked at 6 GHz effective memory clock (but the math suggests it’s 6.1GHz to be exact).
Earlier reports said that the GTX 660 will support the GPU Boost technology, so it comes with two clocks: base of 980 MHz and boost of 1032 MHz.
In comparison to GTX 660 Ti this model will support only 2-way SLI. Reference PCB has only one 6-pin power connectors, but I’m sure that manufacturers will release few models with two.
According to the image card would score X2364 in 3DMark11 Extreme Preset, while the leaked benchmark from Chinese forums mentioned X2354, so we can assume it’s real. But to be honest, even the reviewers don’t usually post the 3DMark11 scores — especially in Extreme Preset — so it’s quite useless for any proper comparison.
The GeForce GTX 660 will be released on September 12th along with GeForce GTX 650.
