In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 440 v3.

The GTX 660 has a 452 MHz higher core clock speed and 56 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 440. This results in the GTX 660 providing 69.4 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 has a 452 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 440 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 660 providing 10.8 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 GTX 660 was released over a year more recently than the GT 440, and so the GTX 660 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 440.

The GTX 660 has 512 MB more video memory than the GT 440, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 660 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 660 has 115.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 440, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 660 is massively better than the GT 440.

The GeForce GT 440 v3 has 144 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition has 960. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 440 is 171 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 660 is 1067. The GTX 660 having 896 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 660 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 440.

The GTX 660 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 440. This means that the GTX 660 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 440.

The GeForce GT 440 v3 requires 56 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 440.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 440 v3 is an OEM only middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 56W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above Radeon HD 5570 but Radeon HD 5670 is still faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 440.
GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition a special edition of GeForce GTX 660.
The new features include a new cooling system and in terms of overclocking, the base-clock was increased from 980MHz to 1046MHz and the boost clock can now reach 1111MHz, instead of 1033MHz. The memory clock was raised to 1652MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 5.5% performance when compared to the reference card.
