GeForce GTX 660 Ti Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 660 Ti is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Kepler Architecture.


Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.
GPU
It equips a GPU GK104-300-KD-A2 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 1344 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 915MHz and goes up to 980MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1502MHz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.


Performance
At 1920x1080, the best suited resolution for GeForce GTX 660 Ti, benchmarks indicate its performance is a little over the older GeForce GTX 580.


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 660 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

jeah but there is no such performance impact while gaming when using all 2gb of vram :P but still was good card but little overpriced hd 7950 was better deal that time

That's interesting to know, to get effective VRAM usage, it needs to be sync'd with the correct memory bandwidth multiple. I always thought any amount of VRAM is ok regardless what the memory bandwidth value.

could I use this without a bottleneck from my processor ? (I'd use it as eGPU)

Is this card futureproof ?
And do i really need to upgrade my gpu, considering im gaming at 768p? My gpu is serving me pretty well and i have played every game on high so far…

I wouldn't say you need to updgrade to this GPU. I would save some more money to get something better (GTX 770 etc.) (Also if you have no problem with your current card why updgrade? ;))

Just randomly thinking about upgrading. :D asking myself how futureproof my card is since 2gb is getting 'old' .. but i can still run games on high settings so i still have no need to upgrade anything.

Don't worry about the 2GB, Any game won't need more than 2GB if your res is lower than 1200p :)
