28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 660 Ti Direct CU II Top Edition graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 660 Ti Direct CU II Top Edition get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 110.

The GeForce GTX 660 Ti Direct CU II Top Edition graphics card is returning a weak performance on Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1080p of 8 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings.
