How well can the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI run games
25 Mar 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB 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.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI graphics card, when running 2020 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 237 games in the list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Ori and the Will of the Wisps and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 115 FPS, Medium: 90 FPS, High: 61 FPS and Ultra: 44 FPS. We proceeded to look at Half-Life: Alyx to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 9 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Ori and the Will of the Wisps which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 88 FPS, Medium: 69 FPS, High: 46 FPS and Ultra: 33 FPS. Next we have Half-Life: Alyx running on GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI which gets L: 17FPS, M: 13FPS, H: 9FPS, U: 6FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Resident Evil 3 Remake gets L: 85FPS, M: 67FPS, H: 45FPS, U: 32FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI, this is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI?
