Default Re: GTX 660 Ti & GTX 670 spec Leaked

I can see the 670 being a good buy at that price, it will more than likely outperform the 7950 which is priced the same. The 660Ti is priced nicely but I'm just not sure exactly how it will perform. I'd say it should be on par with the 7870 for most things that don't use more than 1.5GB of VRAM. This will force prices of the 7870 down - That would be great, but AMD have more room to move on prices for the 78xx series given the smaller die size. Memory prices will be similar, NV use more expensive faster memory but less of it, while AMD use more slower/cheaper memory.

Quantity for NV is the main thing I think. At these prices the demand is going to go through the roof... they must have a lot of semi-defective chips!
