How well can the GeForce GTX 660M run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTX 660M graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 660M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 660M in your PC? This GeForce GTX 660M graphics card has reached the end of its ability to run games released today. If you have it in your gaming PC then it’s time to upgrade your graphics solution.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 660M? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile which is 729% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 982 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB, as it can run 587 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 416% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTX 660M Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 660M is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.


Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK107-N13E-GE-A2 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 835MHz and goes up to 950MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.


Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Kepler Boost, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 45W, it is suited for average sized laptops.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is not too far from the desktop GeForce GTX 650.


System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 660M.

I'm not sure about my twin brother's. He has a 3720QM, he has a GTX660M in a package, and he is changing out his Radeon HD6990M. Will it run well?

The gtx 660m is somewhat an overclocked Gt 650m.
it probably has an upgraded fan to keep it cool so i wouldn't recommend, because my 650m gets quite hot, even on an external cooler below to keep it cooler.
Also the heat wil decrease the lifespan of your laptop.

5% or 10% could be fine, you want to overclock it a bit and test.
And do that over again until your GPU is stable.

:D Go ahead and overclock your GPU. I overclock my GPU on 5% and the temperature? will never go higher than 73C!(playing far cry 3 on all high settings) and note I don't have cooler that time and don't have good ventilation in my room. the card is good in overclocking though just don't make it to much and always monitor the temperature. and remember it has turbo boost up to 950mhz.

I safely overclock this gpu to 1230 mhz using an unlocked bios and during heavy gaming I do not go above 75 degrees, very useful for squeezing out 6-10 more frames depending on how the game responds to an overclock, for example on ultra with shadows set to very high I average 53 fps bioshock infinit

:D happy to tell you I could play BF3 in all high settings w/ decent FPS just turned off the AA and your good to go for fps will never go down 30. I played recently Crysis 3 AA:low, Graphics details: Medium, Graphics Specs:High and surprisingly I got 35-60fps and take note I haven't overclock yet the card in a state of 70degC max. :) and no cooling pad in additional.

So my choice to save 200 euros and get 2 gb less ram and gt 650m isntead off this was okay ? I think that it was cause 8% better gpu and 2gb ram is not worth 200 euros.

it is not really a waste. i got my laptop for 800. this card handles like a champ i can run just about anything in ultra and if not in high. i really dont put too much faith in benchmark testing sometimes. i was told i wouldnt be able to get past 30 fps in arkham city in high. i play it on ultra with AA maxed out and i get 90fps. I play Hitman Absolution and i get 60 with ultra.
