How well can the GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2022 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 299 games in todays list.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from Resident Evil 8 with 20 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Far Cry 6 which returns a weak 12 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Dying Light 2 which we saw getting a weak 14 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Resident Evil 8 on the GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 40FPS, M: 32FPS, H: 21FPS, U: 15FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Far Cry 6 which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 9 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Dying Light 2 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 10 FPS. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI we get the impression that it is going to struggle at this higher gaming resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB which is 26% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 716 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, as it can run 956 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 78% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 660 Ti put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce GTX 660 Ti to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to X% better than a single GeForce GTX 660 Ti performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 660 Ti. Expect this combination to draw up to 300 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
