Third GK104-based Single GPU Graphics Card SKU Detailed

After GeForce GTX 680, which has all components of the 28 nm GK104 enabled, a dual-GPU GeForce GTX 690, which features two of these chips, and the GeForce GTX 670, NVIDIA is readying its third single-GPU GK104-based SKU. We know from older reports that this SKU could be named GeForce GTX 660 (Ti). A fresh report suggests that it will be carved out by disabling an entire graphics processing cluster (GPC) on the GK104 silicon, resulting in a CUDA core count of 1152; reducing the memory bus width of 192-bit GDDR5; and most likely reducing the ROP count to 24. This SKU could be used to capture a price point of around US $249, targeting AMD's Radeon HD 7800 series.

As to Kepler and those high Cuda Core count read this...

Basically they halved Kepler Cuda's core size and made two smaller core do the work of one Fermi, while curtailing the transistor count comparatively (+17% 3000 mil vs. 3540), indicating a huge reporting of Cuda Core thus improving efficacy in each smaller Cuda.
