NVidia to launch more GK104-based GPUs
According to the latest rumors, NVidia will imminently be releasing two more GK104 based cards, which will probably be known as GTX 670 and GTX 660 (Ti?). This means they will be using sub-standard high-end products before they release mid-range and low-end SKUs. With the GTX 680 launched last month, and the GTX 690 due this week, there will be a lot of sub-standard chips the company will want to make use of.
The GTX 680 was given the die codenamed GK104-400-A2. GTX 670 will, according to WCCFtech, have one SMX disabled, and will be called GK104-335-A2. This will give it 1344 CUDA cores, 112 TMU, 32 ROP and 2 GB 256-bit memory in the reference design.
WCCFtech also say that another SKU is to be released, which will probably be known as GeForce GTX 660 or 660 Ti. The die name is not known, but it will probably have another SMX disabled, leaving it with 1152 CUDA cores, 96 TMU, 24 or 32 ROP and 1536 MB 192-bit GDDR5. Both cards will use 2 x 6-pin PCI-E power connector.
Pricing for the entire GK104 line-up has been posted by VR-Zone:
$999 - GTX 690 4GB
$579 - GTX 680 4GB OC (Preferred AIB Pricing)
