    With great success of Gainward GeForce GTX 680 Phantom, Gainward introduces its little brother of Phantom series - Gainward GeForce GTX 660 Ti Phantom. It is so-called “Silent Beast”. The Gainward GeForce GTX 660 Ti Phantom, with the DNA of his big brother – GTX 680 Phantom, delivers very silent operation experience and elegant design for NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 660 Ti. The most important is the Gainward GeForce GTX 660 Ti Phantom comes with factory over-clocked setting - 1084MHz boost clock and 3054MHz (or DDR6108MHz) memory clock.

    Under 3D benchmark, it is 6.9% higher than reference board (3DMark 2011 Xscore). While in gameplay, it is around 7.1% higher. To compare with the competing GPU in red camp, it performs 22.4% higher in 3DMark 2011 Xscore and exceeds amazingly 36.7% in hot titles gaming performance. It will be the very best GTX 660 Ti in the market and operates extreme cool under gaming environment.

    Gainward GeForce GTX 660 Ti with Phantom II cooler, great performance and its affordable price will be the best choice for gamers. You may not lose your final chance to raise performance with the Gainward GeForce GTX 660 Ti Phantom.

    New Phantom II Cooler Design
    The new Phantom II comes with brand new fins design that introduces:
    • better thermal performance
    • lower acoustic level
    • more solid structure than previous generation
    With this new design, Gainward GTX 660 Ti Phantom delivers Extreme cool and silent acoustics under 3D heavy loading even with factory over-clocked speed. It really is an extreme gaming gear for enthusiast gamers.

    Gainward superior hardware design
    Beside the cooler performance, the Gainward engineers’ contribution for their users is to provide superior hardware design for GeForce GTX 660 Ti Phantom. A 4-phase with DrMOS PWM design for the GTX 660 Ti cores and 2-phase PWM design for graphics memory brings a lot more benefits for the over-clocking capability. With factory over-clocked to 1,084MHz boost clock (1,006MHz base clock) and 3,054MHz (DDR6,108) memory clock speed, the GTX 660 Ti Phantom also can be over-clocked easily.

    Gainward Expertool II utility
    Gainward’s new Expertool II utility for GTX 660 Ti’s dynamic clocking to tap into this powerful board. Users can utilize this new tool to enjoy the experience of the performance enhanced and quiet gameplay.

    Along with the Gainward GeForce GTX 660 Ti Phantom, Gainward also introduces the own-designed GeForce GTX 660 Ti. It comes with 980MHz boost clock (915 MHz base clock) with 4-phase DrMOS PWM for the GPU cores and 3,004 MHz memory clock speed. It is built from the DNA of the GeForce GTX 680, is a perfect match for new games’ launching. Thanks to the new Kepler architecture with GPU boost technology, the Gainward GeForce GTX 660 Ti outperforms GTX 570 up to 46% in the 3D benchmark and up to 37.4% in gaming performance. To compare with AMD’s HD 7950, it performs 18.4% higher in 3DMark 2011 Xscore and exceeds amazingly 32.1% faster while playing hot titles games.

    The short PCB allows for the second fan of the Phantom to be half-covered by the PCB and half uncovered moving air up.
