ASUS announced as many as five GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics card models. The cards are based on the company's dual-slot DirectCu II cooling solution, and a PCB design that's similar to that of the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCu series. Among the five models are the GTX660 TI-DC2-2GD5, the base model that sticks to NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 915/980/6008 MHz (core/boost/memory); the GTX660 TI-DC2O-2GD5, with a mild level of factory-overclocking, at 967/1058/6008 MHz; GTX660 TI-DC2T-2GD5, or TOP variant, with 1059/1377/6008 MHz; and variants of the GTX660 TI-DC2O-2GD5 and GTX660 TI-DC2T-2GD5 that feature Steam coupons to Borderlands 2 game.

Based on the 28 nm GK104 silicon, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti packs 1344 CUDA cores, 112 TMUs, 24 ROPs, and a 192-bit wide memory interface, holding 2 GB of memory. ASUS' cards uses two 6-pin PCIe power connectors to draw power. Display outputs include a pair of dual-link DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort. The cards are 3-way SLI capable. The DirectCu II cooler uses a compound heatsink to which heat is fed by a number of copper heat pipes, which make direct contact with the GPU. ASUS plans 3 GB variants of the same models, in which six 2 Gbit memory chips make up 3072 MB of memory, with 144 GB/s memory bandwidth.

Really? Still using that version of the cooler with the heatpipes sticking out like a sore thumb on the top? Come on ASUS, you've hidden the pipes behind the shroud in all the high end versions, why let em hang now? :(













v "My Kind" Nice, I don't have a single LED in my case, but It flows nicely with nothing jutting out from random parts like the graphics card, some people just like a nice uniform look to their computer insides and outsides :)

Like you give a turd when you're gaming anyway, it is a GPU not a focal piece :cool: They have cathodes and LED fans for "your" kind.... hehe

looks nice to replace my aging GTX460 lol. lower bandwidth might turn off some people to get this card but at my res (1600x900) i don't think that lower bandwidth will have much effect on me. having said that i might wait until the price to drop more or skip this gen altogether. if the price are low enough i might replace my GTX460 with this baby :laugh:
