Overclocking

Despite already being overclocked from the reference speeds, the GTX660Ti could still be pushed another 100MHz up from the stock speeds. Most impressive is the memory overclock. 996MHz effective is a big overclock in anyone's book.

Temperatures

Although the cooler might look like it was cobbled together in a shed, it definitely does the business. Stock or overclocked it's cool, but more importantly, really quiet. Seriously quiet. The Northbridge fan on our test Rampage IV is louder than this card becomes when it's working hard.

I don't mind the blue PCB at all, but that cooler looks utterly horrendous on that PCB.

Performance wise, it looks to be competing with the 7950. The Unigine result was surprising though.

The price is a big let down as well. It's so close to a 670, is there even a point to a 660 ti and for that matter a 680. What are Nvidia doing?Quote

I'm still going for the GTX 670 I think. In some games (that I will play a lot) the GTX 670 still performs 10fps better than the 660ti.Quote

I do not like the cooler at all. If its expected to come at £270, a 670 is worth going for. The 660ti should more closer to the £200 mark than the £300Quote

I'm with you in this argument. I think the 660Ti isn't worth it over the 650Ti when it's released, but can't really compete a lot with the GTX 670. At skyrim the GTX 670 even beats the 660Ti with 30fps.Quote
