NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 660 Ti sales 16 August 2012 at a recommended price of 299 USD. This is a Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6.0 GB/s are supplied, and together with 192-bit GDDR5 memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 144.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 9.5" (24.1 cm). An additional two 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 150 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 21.19 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
