GameFreaks have been waiting for the Kepler to walk among them since a very long time. When Nvidia GTX 670 was launched, If we keep the awesomeness aside - people always complained that $400 price range is too high.
Now that we have GTX 660 Ti, Nvidia just made the wish come true. Yes, we agree that Nvidia took so long to squeeze kepler GPU into something more affordable than GTX 670.
The mid range GTX 660 Ti is now available for purchase for just $229 on boards from EVGA, Gigabyte, ASUS and the usual suspects. The Price range is still $50 more than 560 Ti, but it is worth the shot.
Nvidia claims that "GTX 660 Ti is the best card per watt ever made" - to which we cannot agree more because even it beats even AMD's higher priced Radeon HD 7950 at 1920x1080 res. The card can do with its support for DirectX 11 tessellation, PhysX (particularly on Borderlands 2, which you may well find bundled free) and NVIDIA's TXAA anti-aliasing.
We'll wait to get our hands on the independant benchmarks which will further elaborate to which extent the product is exactly capable of pushing the limits. It's fair to say that this 150-watt card comes fully featured.
With 28nm CUDA cores as that of GTX 670, the same base and GPU boost clock spped, the same 2 GB of DDR5 and indeed the same connectivity - it is sure going to be the one of the best Graphics cards available in the market.
You sure can spend you $299 on it, and it will prove to be worth every penny. It is sure can be considered to work close to the GTX 670 performance output and there's not much of the gadgets which can beat it at this price tag.
