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

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 660 Ti 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. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 660 Ti in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 660 Ti has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 660 Ti? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB which is 152% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 898 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 85% better and can meet 672 of their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX 660 Ti Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 660 Ti is a Performance Graphics Card based on 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 GK104-300-KD-A2 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 1344 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 915MHz and goes up to 980MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1502MHz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.


Performance
At 1920x1080, the best suited resolution for GeForce GTX 660 Ti, benchmarks indicate its performance is a little over the older GeForce GTX 580.


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 660 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

They are about the same, 660Ti may be a little faster in some games though. However 7870XT price is lower, you might want to save some money and get something else aside the GPU.

Buy the 660 Ti since the price is the same. The GTX leaves 7870 behind in gaming and you should compare it with 7950 rather than 7870. Here you have some benchmarks http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/647?vs=548

according to http://www.hwcompare.com/13140/geforce-gtx-660-ti-vs-radeon-hd-7870/ gtx660ti has plus on lower power consumption and higher anisotropic filtering, while 7870 has plus on higher memory bandwidth and higher pixel rate. If you wish to play on high resolution 7870 is the right choice but if you wish to get smoother texture 660 ti is the winner :)

HW compare isn't reliable at all. They have benchmarks based on pure calculations, not in-game benchmarks, even their calculations are sometimes wrong due to wrong clocks, ROPs,… On which they base calculations.

I agree, go for 660TI, I have absolutely no issues with my 660 ti at all.. play any game at max settings, except for Crysis 3 which is set to very high but with no AA..

For this card, you should buy a CPU too, like an Intel i5 3570, like mine.

Yes it will bottleneck buy at least i3-3220 or any i5 quad core is recommended. You need a new mobo for a new CPU. Anyway games would still work better with 660Ti than with the GTS 450 even with your CPU.

I'd say the two 560ti's. However, be aware that you check your PSU that it supports SLI. Are you going to do the upgrade with your C2D? In that case, that wouldn't be a great idea. Your C2D would bottleneck the 560ti's to hell. I'd recommend an upgrade such as an i5 3570K or an FX 6300/8320/8350

Dude get the 660Ti. In most cases they perform the same and in some the GTX 660Ti performs much better in gaming. Plus it is less power, less noise and less heat. Go for the GTX 660Ti and in any case you can SLI that one after a few years from now.

Can't go wrong with either, but I would go with Direct CU II, that could just be my bias, but ASUS knows how to make their cards.

I think it won't bottleneck, it's a decent quad core it should handle 660 ti normally. :)
