Asus GTX 660 Ti-DC2T-2GD5 DirectCU II TOP 2GB GDDR5 GPU Review
29 April 2013
Conclusion: If you need a good factory overclocked card card, here you go! The card performs well with DX10-DX11 higher settings. If you don’t want to overclock but need that boost, DC2T does the job, or else you’re happy with GTX 660Ti stock or GTX 660, depending on the cost. But it should be noted that GTX 660 and GTX 650Ti TOP edition still has headroom to overclock, but when it comes to performance this card sweeps in.
Conclusion: In the end, it comes down to the average gamer whether they want added effects and features such as PhysX, TXAA, Adaptive V-Sync at the cost of performance from the GTX 660 or better performance without exclusive features on the Radeon HD 7870 GHz.
Excerpt: ASUS has its own way of putting a special spin on its GPU offerings through special overclock models along with DirectCU II cooling solutions which always tend to deliver something special. Today we have an ASUS GeForce GTX 660 on the test bench to see exactly how this bang for the buck card will perform.

Summary: Final Thoughts
The GTX 660 sits at a very good position at the $200-$250 mainstream market. You are going to get a good price for performance ratio with this card, which many gamers will apprecaite.

Summary: Synthetics -
Synthetic benchmarks are used to test using an environment that has little to no variables. The ASUS GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU Top edition performs very well in these benchmarks, scoring 1000 points higher in the 3D Mark 11 total score than the prior generation GTX 560 and almost 100 points higher than a reference GTX 660. In Unigine Heaven 3.0, the ASUS 660 scores 20 frames higher than prior generation and squeaks by the reference design.
Cons: Reference Board Design - No, Reference Fan - No, Aftermarket Board Design - Yes, Aftermarket Cooling - Yes, Aftermarket Power Control - Yes, Factory OC - Yes
ASUS GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II TOP Video Card Review
22 October 2012
Conclusion: Nvidia fans with a budget below $300 should make an effort and gather up more funds for ASUS’ GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II TOP video card, as the product is really worth it. The card often behaves almost like a full-blown GTX 660 Ti and has considerable overclocking headroom left, as the cooling system and the PCB are basically the same with what was used on the GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II TOP graphics adapter.
Summary: ASUS has a lovely and very silent offering with the GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II TOP edition. It's factory overclocked relatively high, customized and custom cooled how can one not like that?, especially if all the variables work out so well.
But as always let's first discuss the GeForce GTX 660 as reference product all by itself. With the new GK106 silicon NVIDIA certainly has a product at hands with the means to be extremely competitive in the mainstream market.

Conclusion: The RRP for the Ti version in the Malaysian market is about RM 1.2k for the Asus unit so I’m speculating that the non-Ti version will hover at around RM 1k. Comparing Asus’ nVidia range to AMD range, should the price of the non-TI variant be around that of the HD 7850 then it’s really going to be a choice over the AMD counterpart, price of HD7850 but much faster than HD7870 and consuming less power – why not?!?!

Conclusion: The GTX 660 Ti , coming it at around $330 USD ( ) at the time of this publication (NDA was just lifted few hours back) – I have no info on the price in MYR as of now. Is it worth the price, YES! Look at the benchmark! Look at the temperature! Credit goes to the Direct CU II cooling system from Asus, it’s really silent too.
Summary: NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 660 Ti will be a hit, of that I am sure. The card delivers excellent performance levels at reasonable power consumption which enables board partners to create low-noise custom designs. The new GTX 660 Ti is almost twice as fast as the last-generation GTX 560 Ti, but comes at a $50 higher introductory cost.
The ASUS GTX 660 Ti uses the same DirectCU cooler which we've come to love on their GTX 670. The PCB design has also been completely revamped.
Pros: Overclocked out of the box, Large performance increase over the last generation, Extremely quiet in both idle and load, Up to four active displays makes Surround gaming possible with one card, Native full-size HDMI & DisplayPort output, Support for PCI-Express 3.0 and DirectX 11.1, Support for CUDA and PhysX
Cons: Memory not overclocked, Dynamic OC can't be turned off, Manual overclocking is more complicated than before, No technology similar to AMD's ZeroCore power
