Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition 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.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI get on latest AAA 2022 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. 296 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Forza Horizon 5 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 45 FPS, Medium: 35 FPS, High: 24 FPS and Ultra: 17 FPS. We proceeded to look at Resident Evil 8 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 17 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Forza Horizon 5 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 34 FPS, Medium: 27 FPS, High: 18 FPS and Ultra: 13 FPS. We then checked the performance on Resident Evil 8 to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 13 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI running at 1440p is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 660 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition SLI would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 616 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 27% better performance. Alternatively we would suggest getting a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, as it can run 961 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 85% increased graphics performance.
