Nvidia details GeForce GTX 660 OEM boards

The first Kepler cards to drop below 150W TDP - but is the sacrifice worth it?

hmmm rumour mill says the GK106 will be the GTX 660 retail part , with alot less spec than the OEM part ; although its not the first time nvidia have sent 1 part to oem`s and the sanem named part but less spec to retail - GT 440 springs to mind here

to me it says nvidia doesnt want a 660 in retail and it could likely become the OEM card only and theres plenty of them. If they wanted to release the 660 it would of been out by now not just available at OEM.

I thought the GT 650 was a mobile-only part? <goes to check> Yup, Nvidia shows no GT 650 - but it does have a GT 650M.

Wow. I cant wait to play Battlefield 3 @ 7680x1440 on this, with everything turned up high. 3GB of GDDR5!!!

I suppose future GTX660 owners should be grateful Nvidia didn't try to push DDR3 on to it.

Got to agree, at least it isn't 3GB of DDR3, and is proper GDDR5. Admittedly, it's still a total waste of memory, but for those who get the 1.5GB cards it should be okay.

Fingers crossed this sees a retail launch.

One of the worst moves ever to be made by nVidia, to not release a $200 GPU for the endconsumer-market.

There's no competition for AMDs 7850 for over 6 month now, and the older GTX560ti couldn't match the performance of it. And even worse, the 7850 was as good as the GTX570 in most cases, but way cheaper, drawing way less power.

Does nVidia really want me to buy a 7850? I can get a Sapphire 7850 OC in stores for €190 currently.

Seriously nVidia... release that GTX660 nonTi for the endconsumers allready!

I cant See How Nvidia are going to compete I've seen some 1GB 7850 for 130 and 2GB for 145.
After the GT 640 released I guess that the more lower end Nvidia is going to go with Kepler the lower price/performance ratio they will have
