NVIDIA Announces Two New Graphics Cards

By: Ben Rueter
Nvidia announced that they will be releasing two new graphics cards from their GeForce line.

The two cards are titled Geforce GTX 660 and 650. According to Byran Del Rizzo, Senior PR Manager of Nvidia, these will be marketed with an affordable and competitive price tag. The Geforce 660 will debut at $229 and the 650 will go for $109.

Rizzo stated that most PC gamers have not switched over to a Direct X 11 card with the majority of Steam players still using old tech.

Rizzo said that Nvidia wants a lower price for new gamers and those who haven’t upgraded yet to jump on board with a new graphics card. It will be interesting to see how these new cards fair against competitively priced and similar AMD card that are on the market.

Nvidia touts that these cards will help speed up your PC gaming by four times. The 660 and 650 — using the same Kepler tech found in Nvidia’s other 600-line up — includes increased power usage over the previous models. The specs allow the PCs to run new 3D intensive graphics games this year at a reasonable price. While you won’t be able to max out your settings with these cards you’ll be able to join in on new releases.

The new cards are launching just in time for the new slew of DX11 games launching this holiday season. Games like Borderlands 2, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria and Black Ops 2 will all be able to run better than usual according to Nvidia and they claims that these cards will be on the market just in time for you, so keep an eye open for these cards.
