Despite the fact that both the main market of discrete graphics cards have presented a variety of models of the current generation (Radeon HD 7xxx and GeForce 6xx), some gaps in the lines and NVIDIA, and AMD still present. And they are about the same price segment. AMD does not have an accelerator that would occupy an intermediate position between the HD 7770 and HD 7850 (the gap in the price, and the performance is very high), NVIDIA, in turn, is about the same “gap” between the GTX 650 Ti and GTX 660 . And if AMD has recently introduced a new player in different weight categories – Tahiti LE , NVIDIA is planning to fill just above niche. For this will be the GeForce GTX 660 SE. And its intended specifications are available through the forum participants.
So, the new product will be based on the GPU GK106 and have 768 cores CUDA. 64 texture units and 24 raster operator in conjunction with a 192-bit bus can rely on the performance, coming soon to the GTX 660, than the younger GTX 650 Ti. The core of new items operates at 928 MHz (1006 MHz mode GPU Boost), the resulting memory frequency is 5600 MHz.
New products will be presented at the end of this month and will cost, presumably about $ 180, which would make it a direct competitor to Radeon HD 7850.
