TPU reports Zotac launched the GeForce GTX 660 Thunderbolt, a new model intended to spice up sales during the Lunar New Year shopping season in China. This new card features a custom PCB and a new cooling solution with two monolithic aluminium heatsinks and three copper heatpipes to transfer the heat. The spacing between the ridges of the heatsink is greater than you have on fin-stacks, enabling easier cleaning, and the cooler also has easily detachable fans to make cleaning even easier.
Innovations aside, the GeForce GTX 660 Thunderbolt Edition from ZOTAC sticks to NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 980 MHz core, 1033 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory, leaving headroom for users to overclock on their own. It features 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface. Based on the 28 nm GK106 silicon, the GeForce GTX 660 packs 960 CUDA cores. The card draws power from a single 6-pin power connector, display outputs include two DVI and one each of HDMI and DipsplayPort. ZOTAC did not release pricing information, but we know for sure that this one (like most other innovative graphics card designs from ZOTAC) is reserved for Chinese buyers.
