Gigabyte GTX660Ti Windforce Review

3D Mark Vantage

Technology marches on. When you compare the Windforce to its predecessor the GTX560Ti, it's so far ahead that we can't believe it's only been a year. Looking through the list of other cards it's streets ahead of the equivalent model in the AMD range, the HD7870, but nicely sandwiched between the HD7950 stock and overclocked. Although as you can see our overclock doesn't bring much extra performance.

 

3D Mark 11

In the more modern 3D Mark 11 the Windforce is outperforming the reference HD7970. If it keeps this up in the gaming scores we could have the bargain of the year on our hands.

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
