How well can the GeForce GTX 660 SLI run games
22 May 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 660 SLI GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 660 SLI. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2020. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 162 games in the list.

A GeForce GTX 660 SLI card at 1080p is predicted to see a strong frame rate when running Valorant on Ultra - 401 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Grand Theft Auto VI which is 0 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a weak 13 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Valorant will deliver strong FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 807 FPS, Medium: 636 FPS, High: 428 FPS and Ultra: 306 FPS. Next we have Grand Theft Auto VI running on GeForce GTX 660 SLI which is predicted to get L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to get L: 25FPS, M: 20FPS, H: 13FPS, U: 10FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 660 SLI is a strong choice at these screen resolutions. With Ultra graphics settings being regularly reached at 1440p gaming its easy to consider bumping up the screen size to 4K for this graphics card.

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? We think this GeForce GTX 660 SLI has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 660 SLI? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 660 SLI then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB as this is better than 866 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 70% better performance as well. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 660 SLI would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 704 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 34% better performance.

GeForce GTX 660 SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 660 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 660 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may cause micro stuttering in FPS below 30. This means this combination might even perform worse than a single GTX 660.
The optimal performance it delivers is largely better than a single GeForce GTX 680.
Therefore, this combination is sufficient for gaming at 1080p and most demanding games can be played at the highest settings.
