How well can the GeForce GTX 660 Ti KFA² EX OC 3GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 660 Ti KFA² EX OC 3GB 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. All games with system requirements of DirectX 11 or lower are met by this card.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 660 Ti KFA² EX OC 3GB Edition. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2019. This graphics hardware can run 116 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare getting 0 FPS with the GeForce GTX 660 Ti KFA² EX OC 3GB Edition, Death Stranding predicted to get 0 FPS and FIFA 20 getting 73 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to see how the GeForce GTX 660 Ti KFA² EX OC 3GB Edition dealt with it. It scored up 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 Death Stranding which we predict will be weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at FIFA 20 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 56. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 660 Ti KFA² EX OC 3GB Edition is going to need to lower its graphics settings to medium on modern games.

Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the GeForce GTX 660 Ti KFA² EX OC 3GB Edition is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements.
