Nvidia has been trying to expand the reach of its Kepler technology and make it more affordable. Their recent attempt was the GTX 660 Ti and now they’ve integrated the Kepler technology in the GTX 660 and GTX 650 that enables gamers to step in the GTX range at an affordable price.
Having Kepler architecture means the new GTX cards include support for DirectX 11 tessellation, Nvidia PhysX, Nvidia Adaptive VSync and temporal anti-aliasing (TXAA).
Nvidia says compared to the GeForce 9800 GT, Nvidia’s latest GTX 660 offers almost four times the performance and boasts about 960 CUDA cores along with 2GB GDDR5 RAM. The GTX 660 also supports 2-way SLI and comes with 2 DL-DVI ports, HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2. The GTX 660 is now available through various add-in partners for Rs. 15,599 in India.
The GTX 650 on the other hand goes lowers the bar in terms of price and performance compared to the GTX 660. The GTX 650 is 8 times better than the 9500 GT and features 384 CUDA cores, 1GB GDDR5 memory, 2 DL-DVI ports and mini-HDMI. GTX 650 is available for Rs. 7,599.
