ELSA Announces GeForce GTX 660 Ti S.A.C
ELSA has finally launched its GeForce GTX 660 Ti S.A.C graphics cards. And yes, that’s a Ti model.
Following the launch of GTX 680 and GTX 670 ELSA has added another model, this time it’s a GTX 660 Ti. I’m guessing we will have to wait at least a month for a non-Ti version.
The GTX 660 Ti S.A.C is technically the same as GTX 670. Those cards only differ in GPUs, which as you probably know are not that different, just some cut-down CUDA cores and few ROPs missing. This is in fact a special edition for online game – Alliance of Valiant Arms. According to the ELSA, buying this card will provide you some interesting addons for this game. ELSA also adds a special GPU optimizer dedicated for Alliance of Valiant Arms.
As for the card, it’s a dual-slot and dual-fan design, which is said to provide cooler (-12C) and quieter experience (-12dB). GPU and memory are clocked at reference speed – 915/980/6008 MHz. This model has 2GB of GDDR5 memory.
Card is already available in Japan for ¥ 33800, which is around $430 (including their high tax rate).
