Default There's good news and bad news on the 670 and 660 release!!!

Well,

I have been scouring the internet looking for info on the release of the elusive 660 and 670 Nvidia card. The reports that I read are grimm for the 660 cards. Reports say Q3 2012 . I was hoping that it would be releases alongside the 670, which is slated for a May 10th release, which isn't that far off for the group waiting for that card, But if this is true. Looks like AMD is going to have a strangle hold with the 7800 series cards.

Nope, the 670 and the 690 are the two cards slated to come out shortly. People wanting lower end Kepler will have to wait some more.

Are there any estimates on the price of the 670?

~ $350 would be my guess. Probably around 400 for the overclocked versions.

I did say they 670 was being release May 10th. And the 660 Q3 2012. The 690 is going to be for the elite few that have cash to throw around. If I lived in my parents basement. I probably would have bought it though.

From what I've read people speculate an MSRP of $399 but many feel that is inaccurate and it should be priced closer to $350.

Is that fact or rumour?

Probably worded what I meant to say wrong. I meant to agree with you about the release dates and to say that no 660 will be coming out in May (to my limited knowledge)

You do realize that Q3 starts in July, right? In other words....less than two months away....
