In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 610M v4.

The GeForce 610M v4 has a 65 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 660M, but the GeForce GTX 660M has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 610M v4. As a result, the GeForce GTX 660M exhibits a 19.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce 610M v4. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce 610M v4 has a 65 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 660M, but the GeForce GTX 660M has 8 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 610M v4. As a result, the GeForce GTX 660M exhibits a 6.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce 610M v4. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GTX 660M was released less than a year after the GeForce 610M v4, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 660M has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce 610M v4, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 660M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 660M has 49.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 610M v4, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 660M is noticeably better than the GeForce 610M v4.

The GeForce 610M v4 has 48 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 660M has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 610M v4 is 86 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 660M is 365. The GeForce GTX 660M having 279 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 660M delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 610M v4.

The GeForce GTX 660M transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 610M v4. This means that the GeForce GTX 660M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 610M v4.

The GeForce 610M v4 requires 20 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 660M requires 50 Watts. The GeForce GTX 660M requires 30 Watts more than the GeForce 610M v4 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GTX 660M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 610M v4.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 610M v4 is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second 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 GF119 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 900MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 20W, it is suited for small laptops.

Performance
Of all the GeForce 610M variants, this one is the fastest but also the one that consumes more energy and heats more, as it is has the highest clock frequencies.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is on average with the older GeForce GT 520MX.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce 610M v4.
Overview
GeForce GTX 660M is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK107-N13E-GE-A2 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 835MHz and goes up to 950MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Kepler Boost, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 45W, it is suited for average sized laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is not too far from the desktop GeForce GTX 650.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 660M.
