Introduction



NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 660 was released just a month ago. It packs a total of 960 CUDA cores with 80 texture memory units (TMUs), 24 raster operations processors (ROPs), and a 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. As with the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, NVIDIA set 2 GB as the standard memory amount for the GeForce GTX 660. A 192-bit wide memory interface, populated with six memory chips of the same 2 Gbit density, should, typically, result in a memory amount of 1.5 GB.



MSI's GeForce GTX 660 HAWK is a highly customized version of the Geforce GTX 660 and comes with several features for enthusiast overclockers like dual BIOS, with the second BIOS being optimized for liquid nitrogen use, and voltage measurements points for voltmods.

The GPU clock has been increased by over 100 MHz, which will provide a nice performance boost. Unfortunately, memory has remained at the default speed of 1500 MHz.
