GeForce GTX 660 already available at Newegg

There’s something awfully frustrating about soft launches—when products get announced but don’t become available until a few days, weeks, or months later. Luckily, that’s not the case with Nvidia’s new GeForce GTX 660. We’re already seeing a healthy number of cards listed and in stock at Newegg, several of which bear the suggested $229.99 price tag.

Right now, Newegg has the following GeForce GTX 660 cards in stock:

Model Base clock

(MHz)

Boost clock

(MHz)

Price
Zotac ZT-60901-10M 993 1059 $229.99
EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR 1020 1085 $229.99
Galaxy 66NPH7DN7DXZ 980 1033 $229.99
MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC 1033 1098 $239.99
Galaxy 66NPH7DN6ZVZ 1006 1072 $239.99
Asus GTX660-DC2O-2GD5 1020 1085 $244.99
Gigabyte GV-N660OC-2GD 1033 1098 249.99

The $229.99 EVGA model with the 1020MHz base clock might offer the most performance for the money right now. However, it seems to come with the standard Nvidia cooler. Folks seeking a quieter, more compact solution should probably consider the stock-clocked Zotac card, which we featured in our review and found to be very competent—and quiet, to boot. It, too, is priced at $229.99.

Too bad our Editor’s Choice winner—Asus’ 1072MHz GeForce GTX 660 TOP—isn’t in stock yet. Considering the number of cards out already, though, I’m sure it’ll pop up in Newegg’s listings before long.

    The headline does seem like an ad.

      Sure, but I think the first sentence about the usual trend of “soft launches” justifies it. If every card were available right when it was announced, it wouldn’t be remarkable.

      All of the links in the article are Commission Junction affiliate links, so in a way they are. They’re sprinkled everywhere in many articles (product xyz now available at NewEgg for $xxx). But most sites do this anyway.

      (P.S. I have no problem supporting TR by buying through these links.)

    only saw 2 reviews on it. kinda looks like the ti is over priced and useless.

      • brucethemoose

      660 ti does the same to the 670. 670 does the same to the 680.

      It’s all relative.

        actually I should have said irrelevant. But if you look at the 580……….. why even put out a 660 ?

          Sell all the old stock, then drop price of new products since they’re cheaper to make.

          Coz nvidia hates the power companies?

    I’d like to know how that Galaxy cooler compares to the others.

      • derFunkenstein
      • 7 years ago

      It’s a blower, so it’s going to be louuuuuud (comparatively)

        • flip-mode
        • 7 years ago

        Oops, I meant the other Galaxy ($240). I didn’t see that there were two.

    Kinda funny they where available from a Serbian etailer couple a days before the launch. We usually get the short end of the stick here.

    “Galaxy 66NPH7DN6ZVZ”

    Catchy name.

      • Meadows

      My thought as well. What the heck.

      • Chrispy_
      • 7 years ago

      Even catchier than the 02G-P4-2662-KR or the GTX660-DC2O-2GD5?

      You do realise these are specific model iterations and these numbers are never the headlines on a box, right?

    Maybe I should put one of these into my SB rig, so I could finally play Skyrim..

    Furscht

      Lower your standards and graphics settings and things will be fine.

        • derFunkenstein
        • 7 years ago

        yeah you’re playing on what, a 9600GT and it’s playable?/

          • tfp
          • 7 years ago

          Yep, it does ok.

        • NeelyCam
        • 7 years ago

        Did you miss the part about “SB”..?

          • Meadows
          • 7 years ago

          If only you used AMD.

            • NeelyCam
            • 7 years ago

            AMD’s chipset IGPs weren’t any better back then, and Llano wasn’t out

          • derFunkenstein
          • 7 years ago

          He means on your old GPU. It sounds like you’re holding off due to using crappy graphics?

            • MadManOriginal
            • 7 years ago

            NeelyCam means he is using the SB IGP and has no discrete card at all.

            • NeelyCam
            • 7 years ago

            This.

            I’m not sure I can even fit a discrete card there… it’d have to be low-profile with a small heatsink/fan.
