Nvidia unveils GeForce GTX 660 Ti
Nvidia introduces a new contender into its 600 series
Nvidia announced the newest chipset in its 600 series of video-processing hardware, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, which is designed primarily for gamers and enthusiasts.
The GTX 660 Ti is based on the same Kepler architecture as the chipsets powering the previously-released cards in the 600 series: the single-GPU GTX 670 and GTX 680, and the dual-GPU GTX 690.
The GTX 660 Ti will support DirectX 11 rendering, which lets games take advantage of visual features such as tessellation. It will also use PhysX on-board physics processing.
Kepler-specific features, such as temporal anti-aliasing (TXAA), a combination of hardware-based Morphological Anti-Aliasing (or MSAA) and Fast Approximate Anti-Aliasing (FXAA), and GPU Boost – which dynamically increases the card’s clock speed if the thermal and electrical headroom exist – are supported as well.
For a limited time, gamers who purchase a GTX 660 Ti GPU from a participating retailer or e-tailer will receive a voucher for a free copy of Gearbox’s upcoming sequel, Borderlands 2.
