Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti Windforce OC review -
Product Showcase GV-N66TOC-2GD
The card will come with two GB of graphics memory, which is definitely enough if you are a hardcore gamer with a monitor resolution of 1920x1200. Should you opt multiple monitors and SLI, a future 3GB version might be a slightly better alternative.
And as you can see there is room left on the PCB to double up memory. These are GDDR5 SMT solder traces next to each RAM IC. So perhaps there will be a 3 GB model released by Gigabyte. This however remains unconfirmed. The card is PCIe gen 3.0 compatible. Going from PCIe Gen 2 to Gen 3 doubles the bandwidth available to the add-on cards installed, from 500 MB/s per lane to 1 GB/s per lane.
You can see two SLI connectors, the 660 series is allowed to work with up to three cards in SLI mode. For proper scaling and little driver issues as possible we always recommend to stick to 2 cards in multi-GPU mode.
Gigabyte gives the card two DVI connectors (dual-link), one HDMI and a DisplayPort connector (full size).
The cooler is a good chunk longer opposed to the PCB. Incredibly silent and the performance is great, the WindForce series of cooling has done Gigabyte justice alright.
The GeForce GTX 660 Ti has a maximum power consumption of roughly 150 Watts, the typical power raw will actually be a good notch lower. You'll need to power the card with two 6-pin PCIe PEG lead from your power supply. Due to the small PCB the connectors look a little oddly placed, but that is because the cooler is longer than the actual PCB. Power supply wise we recommend a 550 power supply to start with. With one card that is.
In this review we test and benchmark the Gigabyte.G1 Sniper 5 motherboard. This Z87 gaming themed mainboard is seated in the high-end range of Gigabyte's multiple Z87 motherboards releases. Pop on an Intel 22nm Haswell processor and you will notice that the G1.Sniper 5 is extremely feature rich and has great overclock potential. Oh and of course you'lll spot the black/green color schema again.Have a look at this 19 page this review.
