Because some Nvidia-fanboy kids found it hillarious to change Radeon into GeForce going from Sweedish to English in google translate. OP simply copied the translated title without looking at it

660Ti was a 670 with a gimped back-end. This is supposedly similar to Tahiti with a gimped back-end... So it's a higher model number?
It reminded me of it because both the 660 Ti and the 285 have a gimped memory bus and the same core count over their closest counterparts, however the thing which sets them apart is the 285's higher model number over the 7970GHz/280X which may or may not be an indication of the level of performance.Originally Posted by Roaches
660, 660 TI, and 670 were nothing more than rejected chips of the same GK-104 die. Tonga is likely a new silicon die based off GCN, likely with improvements and lessons learned from Hawaii architecture. I don't see how that is the same as this.
256-Bit is more cost efficient, smaller die and lower power consumption.Originally Posted by iamhollywood5
Why are AMD and Nvidia spending their time and resources making new 256-bit cards??
