Scores P6917 in 3DMark 11


We are just over a week away from the official September 12th launch date and Arabpcworld.com has shed more light on the upcoming GTX 660 (non-TI) graphics card based on the GK106 GPU.

Spec wise, the upcoming GTX 660 graphics card packs 960 CUDA cores, 24 ROPs and should end up clocked at 980MHz and 1033MHz for GPU base and boost clock, feature up to 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6GHz and paired up with a 192-bit memory interface. The GTX 660 apparently scored P6917 and X2364 in 3DMark 11 performance and extreme presets but, since these are done with beta drivers they should be taken with a grain of salt.

The die of the GK106 is pretty much the same size as the previous mid-range GF116 GPU and the card ends up with a 140W TDP, suitable for a single 6-pin PCI-Express power connector. Of course, we are sure that some partners will come up with their own custom version that might end up with two 6-pin power connectors.

The GTX 660 was previously scheduled to launch on 6th of September but, according to our info, has been pushed back to September 12. The good side of the story is that the new GTX 660 is expected to be widely available from day one, at least if all goes well for Nvidia.
