The ASUS GeForce GTX 660 Ti Dragon improves on the company’s current top-end GTX 660 Ti, the DirectCU II, and is the second “Dragon” graphics card after last year’s Radeon HD 7850 Dragon. The Dragon’s GeForce GTX 660 Ti GPU is clocked at 1,050 MHz, a large increase from the NVIDIA reference speed of 915 MHz. The 2 GB of GDDR5 memory is attached to a 192-bit bus has also been given an increase (albeit a lot more tame than the core’s increase) to 1.525 GHz from the reference speed of 1.50 GHz.

The cooler on the Dragon looks almost identical to that used on the DirectCU II other than blue accents running down the middle of the cooler, “Dragon” branding, and a metal backplate with a cut-out behind the GPU core. Interestingly, the hole in the middle of the backplate could indicate the presence of a GPU electrical noise filter, muck like the GPU Reactor Module seen on the MSI Lightning cards of late.

Unfortunately, the card is aimed squarely at China and its immediate surrounds, with no planned western availability. Source — [email protected]
