While I wonder if they did go with Boost what's the power section going to need?
There's production build-up for PCB's by the AIB's, new printing of packaging, marketing… costs?
For what its worth, most of the GTX 650 Ti's seem to already rely on proprietary cooling solutions to differentiate themselves in the marketplace - some, like Sparkle even use a (gasp!) non reference PCB
I think Nvidia just let loose more "higher" binned chips for less money. AIB will just stay with active Über PCB renditions and sticker the box’s as "advance clocks" and a new Sku's, while hopefully dropping the pricing. Or, is there some new GDDR memory that’s going to get above the 6000 MHz we see now on the GTX650?
