Nvidia launches the GTX 660 and GTX 650.

Now is the time when we can talk about the GTX 660 and the GTX 650. The GTX 660 is similar to the GTX 660 Ti, but it is lacking 384 CUDA cores, 22 texture units and it requires 10 Watts less. At a MSRP of $229 it is also $70 cheaper than the GTX 660 Ti.

The GTX 650 is a faster clocked GT 640 with GDDR5 RAM instead of GDDR3. The GTX 650 also has a 6-pin power connector that allows the card to overclock very well according to Nvidia.

About our GTX 660 Review:
Now you may be asking yourself if GPUReview will be posting a review of the GTX 660 and I am happy to say that we will! The review won't be posted today however, due to a shipping snafu that was actually my fault. While I was on vacation at the end of last week I was not checking my GPUReview email and I did not see the messages from Evga telling me that they were shipping me a Superclocked GTX 660 to my old address. I noticed the emails on Monday and sent a message to Evga to let them know that my address had changed and that I was going to try to recover the package from my old address. Luckily I live only 3 minutes away from old place, so after work I went to see if I could find my package. Due to my incredible luck, the package was still sitting there and I was able to claim it and take it home with me.

Since then, I've been working on the review each night and I expect to get most of it done this weekend. Right now I am considering delaying the review to next Wednesday so that I can include some Borderlands 2 benchmarks (Borderlands 2 comes out next Tuesday). No matter what I end up doing, you can expect some GTX 660 benchmarks from us sometime next week.
