2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 660 EVGA SC Signature 2 Edition SLI is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 660 EVGA SC Signature 2 Edition SLI runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 154 games in todays list.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 660 EVGA SC Signature 2 Edition SLI is running Death Stranding and delivering playable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 38 frames per second. Comparing this to Microsoft Flight Simulator which is predicted to get reasonable results, where it averages 45 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Horizon: Zero Dawn, which is running at 38 frames per second.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 660 EVGA SC Signature 2 Edition SLI to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Death Stranding where it was playable. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 76 FPS, Medium: 59 FPS, High: 40 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS. We added Microsoft Flight Simulator to our research and predict it will be playable with a 34 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Horizon: Zero Dawn which got 29 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 660 EVGA SC Signature 2 Edition SLI we get the impression that it is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.
