I find it curious that NVIDIA would skip the 760 Ti naming step and assign the 760 name to a 670-based refresh. There's nothing wrong with doing so, but the knock-on effects in terms of naming would be interesting.
If this story is indeed true, here's what the enthusiast half of 700-series lineup could look like:
GTX 780 = Titan w/ 2 less SMX (12 vs 14)
GTX 770 = GTX 680 w/ new PCB and faster speeds
GTX 760 = GTX 670 (other differences unknown)
GTX 750 Ti = GTX 660 Ti (other differences unknown)
GTX 750 = GTX 660 (other differences unknown)
Past there, things would get blurry in terms of speculation. The GTX 650 Ti BOOST was only created as a gap-filler in the $150-$175 range (which was a no-mans-land for NVIDIA before its introduction as the original 650 Ti just wasn't cutting it).

I honestly see very few GTX 770 users. The GTX 770 owners club is barely active.
So what is best? Nvidia spending money doing a refresh that few people buy or
AMD who doesn't spend any money and people still buy their HD 79xx series?
Oh no, a club made for a card that's six days old
isn't all that active? Say it isn't so!
And need I remind you that the GTX 670 outsold both your beloved 79x0 cards combined
? The only reason that anybody buys those two cards is because AMD's bribe
bundle of $TEXAS amount of free games.Edited by svenge - 6/5/13 at 3:25pm
