EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SuperClocked Video Card Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Introduction

The new GeForce GTX 660 Ti, which is being released today, is the latest GPU from NVIDIA, and EVGA is providing six different video card models based on this new GPU. Let’s see how the SuperClocked model fared on our tests.

In the table below, you can see the six models EVGA is releasing.

Model Memory Configuration MSRP
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2 GB USD 300
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SuperClocked 2 GB USD 310
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti FTW 2 GB USD 330
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti+ 3 GB USD 330
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SuperClocked+ 3 GB USD 340
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti FTW+ 3 GB USD 360

At USD 300, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti is targeted to the user who is looking for a relatively affordable high-end video card. Its main competitor is the Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition.

The new GeForce GTX 660 Ti uses the PCI Express 3.0 interface, similarly to its main competitor, while the GeForce 560 Ti and the GeForce GTX 570, which we also included in our comparisons, use the PCI Express 2.0 interface. This new GPU has an automatic overclocking feature that increases the core clock from 915 MHz to 980 MHz when more performance is needed (980 MHz to 1,059 MHz on the EVGA’s SuperClocked model).

In the table below, we compare the main specifications for the video cards included in our review. The prices listed below were researched at Newegg.com and do not include rebates. The price of the GeForce GTX 660 Ti is the one advertised by NVIDIA, while the price for the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SuperClocked is the one advertised by EVGA.
