NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Round-UpNVIDIA continues to flesh out their desktop GPU line-up today, with yet another high-performance graphics card based on the Kepler microarchitecture. To date, we’ve seen the GeForce GTX 670, GTX 680, and monstrous GTX 690 come to market, all sporting GK104 GPUs in one form or another. The new GeForce GTX 660 Ti we’ll be showing you here, although more affordable than its higher-end counterparts, continues the trend and also sports a GK104. As you probably expect though, certain portions of the GPU on the GeForce GTX 660 Ti are disabled or non-functional, so it’s not quite as capable as its more powerful brethren in the performance department. Its feature set, however, is identical...

Do you think it'd be worth it to slap this thing along side a Q6600, or is my processor just too much of a bottleneck at this point? I'm currently running a GTX 470. Still runs like a dream for any console port, but for the more recent PC exclusives or recent ports that have PC exclusive features it's starting to show its age.

You may be CPU limited in some circumstances, but you'd end up with lower power consumption and a cooler / quieter system. The extra graphics performance would also let you run at higher resolutions with better image quality settings as well.

Things are getting really competitive at the top end of the gpu wars. The performance of the 660 TI at $300 makes me wonder if the premium you pay for a 670 or 680 is worth it?

Now I guess we'll be waiting for the 650 to come out. That should really heat things up as I am guessing it will cost ~$200, the meat & potatoes of the gpu world.

Saw an nvidia rep talking about this recenlty, it seems like a really solid drive but I feel like to get true power you would need to SLI it.

Still probably going to go for the GTX 670 so future I can SLI it :/ Could be done with the 660Ti too but if the funds are there why not?

How can Battlefield 3 be left out? :/ If there's one game to test it's BF3...it's the most advanced game AND is vendor neutral.

Its nice for entry level gaming for my son. If i have a choice i would get a 670 by zotac.

I just prefer to use tests that are easily repeatable and consistent from run to run, not only by me, but anyone reading. BF3 is awesome, but any tests we'd do, may not jibe with others, or a reader trying to see how their system compares, etc.

Although its more expensive than originally expected, the 660Ti is still an AMAZING Bang-for-your-buck card that will continue to be worth every cent you payed, for a very, very long time.

The Gigabyte GTX 660 Ti is the best looking in my opinion. I would love to have the card for a future build. Thanks for the awesome review on the GTX 660 Ti!

You guys gave marks to the Zotac card for including a game coupon. I think it's worth mentioning that right now you can get Borderlands 2 for free with any Nvidia card that is a 660 Ti or better! :-P

Won't beat the price per performance of the GTX670.
