31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 660 Ti Gainward Phantom 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.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 660 Ti Gainward Phantom Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 125 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

A GeForce GTX 660 Ti Gainward Phantom Edition card at 1080p is predicted to see a weak frame rate when running Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order on Ultra - 0 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on The Outer Worlds which is 6 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Red Dead Redemption 2 performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 6 FPS.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to predict how the GeForce GTX 660 Ti Gainward Phantom Edition would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we looked at The Outer Worlds which was weak with a 4 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Red Dead Redemption 2 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 4. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 660 Ti Gainward Phantom Edition is not the best choice to run modern games.
