NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 660M sales 22 March 2012. This is a Kepler architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 2 GHz are supplied, and together with 128bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 64.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. Its power consumption is at 50 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 7.51 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
