Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti review - 3-way SLI included

Nvidia's latest GTX 660 Ti challenges the Radeon HD 7870 and 7950

By


GTX 660 Ti vs. Radeon HD 7950 Boost

Nvidia proudly let us know the GTX 660 Ti should outperform the Radeon HD 7950 on a regular basis. While we would not be surprised if AMD lowers the HD 7950 price somewhat in response, as we mentioned on page 3 the company has limited room to do manoeuvre. When we compare the GTX 660 Ti scores to those of the Radeon HD 7950 Boost, they appear to be about as fast on average. 0.3% difference to the advantage of AMD. If we only look at 1920x1080 resolution benchmarks, Nvidia is 3.8% faster on average.

However, the performance differences per game vary quite a bit more. In Metro 2033 and Aliens vs. Predator for example, AMD is significantly faster, while Nvidia moves to first place in games like Crysis 2 and Unreal 3.
