ZOTAC GeForce GTX 660 and GTX 650 Pictured
Member of Chinese PCinlife forums has leaked a picture of both upcoming cards — GTX 660 and GTX 650. It’s believed that the cards are from ZOTAC, because GTX 650 has non-reference cooler installed and the stickers are quite similar to previous models.
The GeForce GTX 660 would feature a blower-type fan. It has the same type of the cooler which is used in four cards from NVIDIA right now (GTX 670, GTX 660 Ti, GTX 660 OEM, GTX 660). The card is based on GK106 GPU, which features 960 CUDA cores and 24 ROPs. This reference model will be clocked at 980/1033 MHz for base and boost respectively.
The shorter GK107-based GeForce GTX 650 graphics card from ZOTAC has a dual-slot design with a large fan on the top. This model has 384 CUDA cores and is basically a GT 640 with GDDR5 memory.
Both cards would feature the same type of display outputs: HDMI, DisplayPort and two DVI’s, but default outputs for GTX 650 are different for reference card.
According to the latest information GeForce GTX 660 would cost around $230-250 while GeForce GTX 650 $149. Both models will be released on September 12th.
