Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Graphics Card
6 March 2015
Excerpt: This card from NVIDIA gets you 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory which beautifully renders even complex scenes. This is only half the memory compared to the MSI Radeon R9 270X graphics card, but while that model has memory with a clock speed of 5600MHz, this units memory runs at 6008MHz. That kind of speed is incredible and helps render out real time graphics quickly and efficiently.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti OC Version Review And Benchmarks
3 April 2014
Excerpt: In the ever advancing world of VGA technology now comes another contender for the mid range king, the all-new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660Ti. Targeted at the AMD 7870 and 7950 it is priced at right around $300.00 U.S this should be the very hottest card that NVIDIA releases in 2012 and garnish sales records worldwide. This card is aimed at the mid range market and not the high-end although rumors have it that in some games and tests it will however perform at very nice levels.
Excerpt: In April we published a big round-up of 23 graphics cards with AMD Radeon HD 7870 / 7950 and Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 / 660 Ti GPUs. Inno3D has since sent us their iChill GeForce GTX 660, which we of course want to compare to the other cards we tested last month.
Excerpt: If you need to pick up a couple of graphics cards to run together in SLI, but you're on a budget, then give this card a good look. While the GTX 660 is a little older than many chips on the market, it's still quite powerful and runs nice and fast. The 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory with this card is more than enough for a wide range of PC games, and the 192-bit RAM runs at 6.0GHz.
Palit GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB JetStream Graphics Card Review
24 October 2012
Conclusion: When we reviewed the 660 Ti OC from Gigabyte back in August, we were so pleased with it that it ended up being awarded with our Editor’s Choice award as we felt that both Nvidia and Gigabyte did a great job and it showed their partnership was strong, and we’ve got exactly the same story here with Palit and their JetStream edition which impressed us in many areas.
Summary: The GeForce GTX 660 provides a surprisingly high level of performance given the MSRP of just $230 making it roughly 23% cheaper than last month’s Ti version. The performance was unexpected for the simple reason that the GTX 660 was just 14% slower than the GTX 660 Ti at 1920x1200 which in turn meant that it was 10% faster than the Radeon HD 7850.
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC (SuperClocked) 2GB Video Card Review
13 September 2012
Excerpt: Nvidia’s latest mid-range budget Kepler video card might be a new great opportunity for gamers running older DX10 based cards to upgrade to a very reasonably priced DX11 GPU. EVGA’s latest GeForce GTX 660 SC video card comes factory overclocked with even more performance down its sleeves, while also maintaining a very low TDP. Check out what the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 can do compared to its red competition.
Pros: Fantastic performance, in some cases outperforms the GTX 580., Low Power Consumption, along with lower heat output., Low noise operation at factory overclocked settings., 3 Year Warranty by default, but can be upgradable to 5 or 10 years upon registration, EVGA Precision X Overclocking Utility
Cons: Overclocking of the EVGA GTX 660 SC fell short of our expectations on the Core Clock Speed.
Summary: NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 660 adds to the company's product stack by providing a fully featured gaming solution at the crucial price point of around $200. In terms of performance, the reference design sits right between AMD's Radeon HD 7850 and HD 7870. Thanks to its overclock out of the box, the ASUS GTX 660 DirectCU II TOP is able to match HD 7870's performance, ending up 8% faster than the NVIDIA GTX 660 reference design.
Pros: Large performance increase over last-generation, Extremely quiet, Overclocked out of the box, Low temperatures, Native full-size HDMI & DisplayPort output, Support for PCI-Express 3.0 and DirectX 11.1, Support for CUDA and PhysX
Cons: Price too high to make it a clear winner, Small memory overclock
Excerpt: GIGABYTE has made a name for themselves with very overclockable motherboards and their extremely highly clockable “Super overclock” graphics card offerings. Coming from this same brand, we have their overclock offering for the GTX 660 Ti.
Summary: Gigabyte has an outstanding offering with the GeForce GTX 660 Ti WindForce OC. It's factory overclocked, customized and custom cooled.
But let's first discuss the GeForce GTX 660 Ti as reference product all by itself. NVIDIA has a product in their hands that might become the best selling product ever. Initially I did expect a new GPU for this product series, but they went ahead with the Kepler based GK104 that's being used in the GTX 670 and GTX 680 as well.
