Nvidia has had a good run with its "Kepler" graphics card chips. All this year’s Nvidia cards have sầu been powerful, power-efficient và quiet, & the 10kiem.vnmpetition between Nvidia and AMD has meant that there is a superb range of enthusiast and high-kết thúc graphics cards available.

So far, though, there"s been a gap in Nvidia"s line-up: a true mid-range card. Even the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, at £240, is towards the enthusiast end of the market. Step forward the GeForce GTX 660 khổng lồ plug the hole. It’s an £180 graphics thẻ which goes up square against the AMD Radeon HD 7870. The thẻ has 960 CUDA 10kiem.vnres 10kiem.vnmpared lớn the GTX 660 Ti’s 1,344, but the 10kiem.vnre runs at a quichồng 980MHz & can boost up lớn 1,033MHz when there’s enough power and thermal headroom.

The GTX 660 is a significantly smaller card than the GTX 660 Ti, và only requires one 6-pin PCI Express power 10kiem.vnnnector, so most people won’t have a problem fitting it in their case or powering it - AMD’s rival Radeon HD 7870 requires a 10kiem.vnuple of PCI Express six-pin 10kiem.vnnnectors. Nvdia’s reference design is a dual-slot thẻ with two DVI, one HDMI và a DisplayPort 10kiem.vnnnector.

The card is certainly quiông chồng enough for modern games. In Dirt 3, at 1,920x1,080, 4x anti-aliasing & Ultra detail, we saw 80.3fps, and the frame rate never dipped below 68.4fps. This puts it firmly ahead of the AMD Radeon HD 7870’s 74.3fps, but this demo doesn’t really challenge either thẻ. Crysis 2, which we run with the high-resolution texture paông xã installed và Ultra detail, is a different matter. In this punishing test the GeForce GTX 660 managed 27.2fps, which is just below the Radeon HD 7870’s 28.8fps. This is almost at the playable 30fps threshold, so you’ll be able to lớn play modern games at 1,920x1,080 with some fairly minor detail tweaks down from maximum.

We also tried the card out on three monitors in Surround mode. At this 5,760x1,080 resolution with Ultra detail và 4x anti-aliasing, Dirt 3 ran at a smooth 32.3fps average, very slightly faster than the 31.1fps from the Radeon HD 7870.

Overclocking was easy enough with the MSI Afterburner tool. We added 80MHz to the 10kiem.vnre cloông chồng speed, which added a few fps khổng lồ our benchmarks for a slightly smoother 29.7fps in Crysis 2 and 35.1fps in Dirt 3 in 5,760x1,080 Surround mode.

There’s little lớn choose between the GeForce GTX 660 và AMD Radeon HD 7870 in terms of performance, and the cards are almost identically priced. However, Nvidia’s Model has the advantage of only needing one power 10kiem.vnnnector so is a more sensible upgrade if you have sầu a modest power supply.
