In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3-way SLI are significantly better than the AMD FirePro S9150.

The GTX 660 Ti has a 15 MHz higher core clock speed and 160 more Texture Mapping Units than the FirePro S9150. This results in the GTX 660 Ti providing 149 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 660 Ti has a 15 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the FirePro S9150. This results in the GTX 660 Ti providing 8.3 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The FirePro S9150 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 660 Ti, and so the FirePro S9150 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 660 Ti.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The FirePro S9150 has 10240 MB more video memory than the GTX 660 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 660 Ti has superior memory performance.

The GTX 660 Ti has 112.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FirePro S9150, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 660 Ti is massively better than the FirePro S9150.

The FirePro S9150 has 2816 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3-way SLI has 4032. However, the actual shader performance of the FirePro S9150 is 2534 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 660 Ti is 3951. The GTX 660 Ti having 1417 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 660 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FirePro S9150.

The FirePro S9150 requires 235 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3-way SLI requires 450 Watts. The GTX 660 Ti requires 215 Watts more than the FirePro S9150 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 660 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the FirePro S9150.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewFirePro S9150 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.

It's based on the Hawaii XT Core (same used on Radeon R9 290X) and therefore offers 2816 Shader Processing Units, 176 TMUs and 64 ROPs on a 512-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 900MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.

Compared to Radeon R9 290X, its central unit is slightly lower and overall its gaming performance is lower than Radeon R9 290X because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro S9150 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 10% and 15% worse than Radeon R9 290X.
GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3-way SLI is a solution of three GeForce GTX 660 Ti put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce GTX 660 Ti to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to X% better than a single GeForce GTX 660 Ti performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 660 Ti. Expect this combination to draw up to 450 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
