GeForce GTX 660

Following the news of the new NVIDIA mid-range product coming, which is coming later this month, we learn new facts thanks to BSN.

According to the site the upcoming faster variant of the GTX 650 Ti, which has a codename of GTX 655, would arrive to the market under the name of ‘GTX 650 Ti Boost’. This card is clearly targeting the latest card from AMD based on Bonaire GPU, which is also to be released this month.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Specification

The source confirms that the GTX 650 Ti Boost would not differ significantly in comparison to current model. It would still feature GK106 GPU with 768 CUDA cores and 192-bit interface, while offering faster clock speeds. The GTX 650 Ti would probably have 1 or 2GB of GDDR5 memory across 192-bit interface. Since the card features ‘Boost’ in name, it offers a boost clock. That’s why it has two clock states of 980 and 1030 MHz. Besides that, the memory clock rose considerably to 1500 MHz, boosting the bandwidth to 140 GB/s, which is believed to be the biggest difference between Ti and Ti Boost models.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Performance

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti is said to provide the performance close to GTX 650 Ti, while leaving a noticeable gap to non-Ti GTX 660. The source mentions 4100 3Dmarks for the GTX 660, so it’s unclear which preset are they referring too, since the GTX 660 scores 6000 with the Performance profile and 2200 with the Extreme. So instead of trying to understand where did they got these numbers from, I will use the percentage scale.

  • GeForce GTX 660 – 186%
  • GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost – 100%
  • GeForce GTX 650 Ti – 87%

Speaking of the price. The upcoming GTX 650 Ti would probably retail at $169, which is almost the old price of the GTX 650 Ti (originally it was the price on the non-Ti model). So technically speaking NVIDIA is launching its third GTX 650 card at the same price tag.
