Nvidia to release GTX 670Ti in March

A report emerging from the Swedish tech site Sweclockers suggests that Nvidia will meet the March launch deadline for the 28nm Kepler technology. The codename GK104 core will be the first to arrive and the first card to be produced from it will be the GTX 670Ti which Nvidia say will be a replacement for the GF114/GTX 560Ti. The card is dubbed for a launch after CeBit so between the 11th and 31st of March.
This suggests a release some time between March 11th and March 31st. The GeForce GTX 670 Ti is vaguely indicated to have performance “better than GeForce GTX 580 and Radeon HD 7950”, which implies average performance somewhere between HD 7950 and HD 7970.
Rumours suggest GK104 will bring a radically new architecture, with specifications including 1536 shaders, 128 TMU, 32 ROP and 2 GB 256-bit memory GDDR5. Core clock for the top bin, GTX 670 Ti, is expected to be around 950 MHz.
The flagship GTX 580 successor is at least half a year away, and will not be released till Q3 or Q4 2012. Till then, AMD is expected to hold on to the single GPU crown with Radeon HD 7970 with the GTX 670 Ti and HD 7950 following behind.
