Gigabyte Also Launches GTX 660 Ti 3GB and GTX 670 with 4GB Memory

Published: Oct 3rd 2012, 07:37 GMT

Today Gigabyte has officially launched three new cards, all of them feature higher memory capacity. I have written about the GTX 680 OC with 4GB, which was added few days ago to Gigabyte website, but it seems that the manufacturer was actually preparing three custom models of all its fastest GeForce cards.

This card is the first Gigabyte’s GeForce from 600 series to feature three-slot design. As all high-end models this one has WindForce 3X cooling as well. Card will offer a non-reference PCB, higher 4GB memory buffer and clocks. The OC Edition arrives with 1071 MHz base and 1137 boost clock. The memory is clocked at reference 6 GHz speed. Surprisingly this card requires only two 6-pin power connectors, not 8-pin like most of the high end cards. Unfortunately this card costs almost $800, which makes this card completely unconsidered buy (you can get a GTX 670 SLI for this price).

The company has also launched a refreshed model of GTX 670. It seems that manufacturers are currently focusing only on mid-range graphics cards segment. There are not many GTX 670 and HD 7950 cards launched these days, so it’s good to see a new GTX 670 model. Most importantly, this is second triple-slot card from Gigabyte launched today, it actually looks like GTX 680, only with different GPU model. It even has the same memory size of 4GB. Not to mention the non-reference clocks of 980/1058 MHz. However, if you compare this card, which is reported to cost around $550, to any HD 7970 GHz Edition card, then I’m not sure why would anyone even consider this a better solution.

This is the last addition from Gigabyte. It’s a dual-slot 3GB model of GeForce GTX 660 Ti. It looks quite similar to the GTX 670 with this triple-fan WindForce 3X cooler. Packed with Ultra Durable components card offers a 1032/1111 GPU clock with 6GHz memory speed. As all of those cards also this one requires two 6-pin power connectors. The GTX 660 Ti OC 3GB card is listed online for around €320.
