By using this card for about a week or so i can only say good things about it, mine's memory also overclocks quite well
probably because of that heatsink
And you haven't said a word...
Could be. Also got a GB WF one, uses the 218A chips and not the 219A like the MSI one.... so...
I sign my NDAs with BLOOD :O
Jesus this is not good for AMD lol! Their 7870 and 7950 are getting smacked around by the 660ti. :shadedshu
There is peculiarity. Check this out:-
1. ASUS 660 Ti and Zotac 660 Ti achieve 1740 MHz and both get 66.6 fps.
2. Palit 660 Ti gets 1795 MHz and 69 fps.
3. MSI 660 Ti gets 1800 MHz and 69.1 fps (despite the fact that core clock is lower than Palit card).
Fps increases as memory clock increases.
Are you going to be reviewing the 3GB Galaxy model?
Take off the NVIDIA goggles and see that the 660Ti perform equaly as good as 7950
minus the legendary OC abilities and 1600P performance
Memory starved? 20 % OC on memory and only 5% on core yields almost 13% faster. Interesting.
Who wears goggles?
660ti consumes very little power (135w average in games) and beats 7950 and 7870 in about 85-90% of benchmarks. And the overall performance summary is showing the 660ti a bit faster.
EDIT: well in terms of the non reference cards atleast.
In terms of no actual fair compresion do you mean? Bplease, One does not simply ignore HD7950's OC
Most people would not give this comment a second look given your name. In any case, it performs on average between the HD7870 and HD 7950. It also is priced between those two. Settle down, all is as it should be.
2 GB memory has proven to be more than enough. The GTX 690 has proven that. True "Memory bottleneck" comes with bandwith and overclocking increases that bandwith so performance should increase as such.
yeah, then your forgetting about the GTX660ti overclocking.
Im kidding. The 660ti reference is the same speed as a 7950 for $299. IWth the non reference cards that a clocked a bit, it beats the 7950.
Right speed of memory can make a difference, only if that memory is starved any little bit if its memory bus size etc. However if your playing a game that is pulling all the vram you have an the FPS is lower then it should, its pull out of your system memory and that'll really bog down your game FPS. I experienced this with my GTX470 on skyrim when I had one.
Do you really honestly think they overclock even remotely the same? really?
Than let me tell you something after 5 HD7950s and 3 GTX660Tis, they don't, not even close. As one can easily improve about 12% performance, the other about 35% (no big voltage bumps)
All of the HD7950's i've ran into can 1025Mhz at stock voltage, that is adding about 22-24% performance to HD7950's summery.
When did I say they overclock the same lol! If your going to overclock one. you got to overclock the other then same percentage if thats possible for it to be a fair comparison. Its a given fact for this generation that AMD cards are able to scale a fair bit better then Nvidias.
I like the colour scheme.
Definite contender for my to buy list.
It is obvious, apart from the overclocking advantage the 7000 series offer, that the 7950 and the 660Ti are not in the same league even if the 660Ti wins in some situations. The direct competition is the 7870 where the 660ti is the better card no doubt but price is the key here to make it a successful card.
Im impressed, and i haven't been to impressed by Nvidia for a few yrs now, but this card is WIN, looks like ill be going back to Nvidia next yr and getting two of these. Bit to expensive at the moment at between $350 and $410, compared to the 7870 which is between $300 and $360 which was going to be my next upgrade till this card came out.
what GTX660ti are you seeing at 350-410?
MSI N660Ti PE 2GD5 GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit ...
Those ones, AUS Dollars remember
Still so much cheaper than here.
424AUD for the non SC EVGA model here.
Yea i know, ive looked at NZ many times for parts since our dollar is kickin butt at the moment and your prices are still crazy Gotta feel sorry for you guys.
