Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti Overclock Edition Graphics Card

The mid-range champion.

Today we'll begin reviewing graphics cards based on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti GPU. Considerably cheaper than GeForce GTX 670/680 and performing just a little slower than GeForce GTX 670, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti looks rather attractive. Today we'll take a closer look at the Gigabyte implementation of the promising GPU.

Specifications

  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 Ti (GK104)
  • Interface: PCIe 3.0 x16
  • GPU clock rate (ROPs/shaders): 1033–1098 MHz (the standard is 915–1058 MHz)
  • Memory clock rate, physical (effective): 1502 (6008) MHz (standard)
  • Memory bus: 192-bit
  • Stream processors: 1344
  • Texture units: 112 (BLF/TLF/ANIS)
  • ROP units: 24
  • Dimensions: 266x137x42 mm
  • PCB color: dark blue
  • Peak power consumption (3D/2D/standby): 156/52/40 W
  • Output connectors: DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI 1.4a, DisplayPort 1.2
  • Multi-GPU mode: hardware SLI

Why do we compare it with the GeForce GTX 670? Because the design of GTX 660 Ti is based the GTX 670's design: we have the same 8 memory seats on the front, but just 4 on the back instead of 8, due to memory bus reduction from 256 to 192 bits.

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti Overclock Edition has an original design, although with a standard 4-phase GPU and a 2-phase memory VRM. The outputs are the same as on the reference card as well: DVI-I, DVI-D, Display Port, and HDMI (with sound transmission enabled). The video adapter demands supplementary power through a pair of 6-pin connectors.

Maximum resolutions and frequencies:

  • 240 Hz maximum refresh rate
  • 2048 x 1536 @ 85 Hz max. analog (VGA) resolution
  • 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz max. digital (DVI) resolution (for Dual Link DVI-D)
