How well can the GeForce GTX 660M run games
13 Dec 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? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 660M is the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile, which is 729% more powerful and can run 982 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 660M is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB, which is 416% more powerful and can run 575 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

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 monitored the card a few hours ago with GPU-Z while playing Far Cry 3 and while the usage of the card was 99% the temperature was only 60oC (censius). And the core clock was only 660-665 MHz. But this graphics card has a turbo boost up to 800 MHz right? How is this about i cant use it?

Hi,
The GPU itself is not bad but how much you pay for it makes it a bad choice. You are better getting a GT 650M GDDR5 and overclocking it, rather than buying a laptop with this GPU which comes at a much higher price.

Some laptops have really bad cooling systems - if they can be called cooling systems. Excessive heat will lower the component's lifespan. Then again, this GPU won't last for more than two years and the warranty, usually of two years, will handle any damage done to any pc component, except the screen. At least that's how it works here. However, in some cases overclocking just brings more heat and less performance. For instance, overclocking the memory clock of this GPU would bring more heat and no performance boost since it does not benefit from extra bandwidth.

Your GPU is already an overclocked GTX 570M which is an overclocked GTX 470M (and that's NVIDIA for you).
I doubt you can go very far and this reminds of those engine of the old airships that are already in the threshold and when people increase their power, even if just by 1 tiny percent, BOOOM, all goes to hell, hehe :)

The performance is just a matter of OC.? then no doubt 660m is worth enough to buy. and speaking of OC I tested the 660m max temperature and it only reach up to 66deg means a lot of room to overclock this thing and absolutely will surpass the performance of the previous powerful GTX 570m. not bad!

Not sure what you mean. GT 650M OC becomes a GTX 660M - that's why GTX 660M is not a worth buy.
GTX 570M is a fast GTX 470M so it's not that hard to surpass :P

The thing is the Kepler GK107 Core has its limits. GTx 660M already pushes it hard. You need to do experimenting but maybe you can push to 1000MHz.

yes, immediately:
I was asking exactly same question myself in recent few months,
finally I decided to buy laptop with GT650M (GDDR5) because only diference is "technical possibility for better OCing and SLIing";
check my laptop review and Pip's 600M gpus somparison
