This long rumored GPU is probably not full of any surprises any more with all the leaks surrounding it, but that doesn't mean the card offers any less performance or value. Priced at $299, $100 less than its GTX 670 cousin, the GTX 660 Ti has ALMOST the same specifications: 1344 CUDA cores, 2GB of frame buffer running at 6.0 GHz, GPU Boost capability; but it does move from a 256-bit memory controller to a 192-bit controller resulting in a performance hit of about 15% in many games.

The upside for the GeForce GTX 660 Ti is that it competes strongly with the Radeon HD 7950 3GB cards that will run you at least $50 more. And yes, this 7950 was even tested with the new "Boost enabling" BIOS. Not only that, gamers that purchase the GeForce GTX 660 Ti will get a free copy of Borderlands 2 which is going to be a terrific title.

If you want the full review of the GeForce GTX 660 Ti be sure to check out my write up and comprehensive benchmark collection over at PC Perspective (pcper.com) and stop by the video card section to see if the GTX 660 Ti is right for you!"

I don't see any cards if I filter only GTX 660 ti...

There should be some now. They are still resolving prices for merchants, with more prices being added by the hour.

I'm probably just missing the obvious, but how do you start a new build? it will only let me edit my old ones.

RyanShrout submitter 2 points 59 months ago

Save your current one and then hit "remove all".

Interesting, was just about to purchase a GeForce GTX 670. Now I don't know which to pick.

Get the 660 Ti and overclock the hell out of it... I have a 670 FTW (which I don't regret buying one bit) but economically it makes more sense to get the 660 Ti and overclock it.

The GTX 670 will perform better in any situation, but the 660 is too close to it in some areas.

TestBuilds 1 point 58 months ago

Agreed, plus at 1080p, gtx 660ti all the way, 670 for above 1920x1200

TestBuilds 1 point 58 months ago

As far as the bechmarks from Anandtech go, this card will run battlefield 3 at 1080p with max settings at 60+ fps thats awesome
