10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed
The GeForce GTX 660 SLI is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.
DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.
This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 660 SLI graphics card, when running 2023 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. This graphics hardware can run 265 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.
The GeForce GTX 660 SLI graphics card is predicted to return a playable performance on Star Citizen at 1080p of 41 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Battlefield 2042 which we saw got weak frame rates of 0 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Days Gone, which was getting 33 FPS under tests.
People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 660 SLI to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Star Citizen and predict it will be playable. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 82 FPS, Medium: 64 FPS, High: 43 FPS and Ultra: 31 FPS. We added Battlefield 2042 to our tests and saw it was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Days Gone which got 25 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 660 SLI is not ideal and its more advisable to run modern games at 1080p resolution. But if you really want to play games at 1440p then you will likely have to make some graphical adjustments to improve game FPS stability.How many years will the GeForce GTX 660 SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 660 SLI in your PC?
