NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 660 will be delayed from September 12th to September 13th, according to a report by FUD Zilla. The reason for the delay is because Apple is hosting an event on Wednesday, NVIDIA decided to delay the launch one day so the GeForce GTX 660 news wouldn't get drowned between all the iPhone 5 reports and other Apple craze news.
The reason for the new one day delay is quite obvious on the other hand, as when Nvidia set the September 12th NDA date, Apple sent out its press invites for the big event that will be held on the same date. A couple of days ago we received a hint that actually looked like a recommendation rather than a change from Nvidia stating that it is better for reviews to go live on September 13th, but now it looks like Nvidia decided to change the actual NDA date and we will not see anything before September 13th, of course, unless someone decide to break the NDA.

The samples of the GTX 650 on the other hand are not to be sent before September 12th, according to our source, and the main reason as we have not seen any early preview leaks is actually the fact that Nvidia is holding the actual driver hostage and it will not see the light of day before September 12th. You might have the card but the final driver is nowhere to be seen.
The site also mentions that the launch price of the GeForce GTX 660 is set around $200.
