EVGA GeForce GTX 650 and GTX 660 Pictures Leak Out
EgyptHardware found the first pictures of EVGA’s upcoming GTX 660 and GTX 650 graphics cards.
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 looks identical to GTX 660 Ti (but since this is actually a reference EVGA design it will also arrive with reference PCB, which is not the same for Ti and non-Ti models). The card will feature 980/1033 MHz clocks (base/boost). Memory is clocked at reference 6 GHz. On the picture there’s a SC model, which will feature higher clocks (but these are yet unknown). Card will be available for $229, while GTX 660 SC will cost $249.
I thought it would be similar to the GT 640, but it’s not. The GTX 650 looks like a midget version of GTX 660. It’s a fully reference model, with 1058 MHz clock and 1GB of GDDR5 128-bit memory. This model has been priced at $149. It is said that EVGA will also offer GTX 650 with 2GB memory and 144MHz higher clock. My advise, stay away from any 2GB 128-bit model.
Many thanks to Ahmed Mohamed for a tip.
