New information on Nvidia’s GTX 660 series has apparently come to light. It seems that there will be some 3GB GeForce GTX 660 Ti cards coming our way soon, and MSI GTX 660 Ti Hawk is one of them.
The new card from MSI shows us the new and revised Twin Frozr IV cooling system
In this implementation, MSI has reportedly
decided to use 3GB of GDDR5 video memory to set itself apart from other GTX 660 Ti makers on the market.
Moreover, if that wasn’t enough, the new card comes with a new cooling system part of the famous MSI Twin Frozr series.
This is a fourth-generation Twin Frozr cooler and not much information is available on it.
The bit on the 3GB GDDR5 specification is apparently based on a GPU-Z screenshot, but this may also be an error when reading the amount of memory available on the card.
The card comes pre-overclocked at an impressive 1020 MHz default speed for the GPU, with an even higher 1098 Mhz Boost option.
Unfortunately, the same standard 6008 MHz effective memory frequency is used for the 3GB of GDR5 VRAM, but the card also comes with dual 6-pin power connectors, thus implying that more than 150 watts could be required.
The cards pictured were mounted in a triple SLI setup and we’re wondering if seating those so close to each other is healthy, considering the cooling issues posed by the lack of proper air intake for the first and second cards.
