The appearance and styling of the EVGA GTX 660 SC doesn't give us a great deal to talk about, as this is little more than a reference design GTX 660. This means that the graphics card is the shortest in the group at a mere 241mm and has a single six-pin...

Yesterday I had the chance to publish my reviews and testing results from two different GTX 660's one a reference designed card with and overclock from EVGA and the second another overclocked card with a unique thermal solution from MSI. Assuming you...

Once again, much like the GTX 660 Ti, I came away from testing the GTX 660 impressed. At a $70 price drop when compared to the GTX 660 Ti there just isn't that big of a difference in performance. That means that Nvidia is introducing a card to the...

Just for fun, we also decided to compare idle and load power consumption between the two cards. Power consumption was measured in Shogun 2, using High Detail settings. The 30W difference between the two cards is impressive considering that we've only...

We were really impressed by the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SuperClocked. It was between 3% and 12% faster than the standard GeForce GTX 660, and the best news: both cost the same. The reviewed video card was between 8% and 36% faster than its main...

Ever since the launch of the GeForce GTX 660 we have tested many different GTX 660 brands, and it is interesting to see how close each and everyone of them is in terms of performance, clocks and overall performance. EVGA did go a little more traditional...

For a budget card, the EVGA GTX 660 SC is priced perfectly for its performance. Cheaper than the HD 7870 and slightly more expensive than the HD 7850, overall the GTX 660 line is priced perfectly for beating AMD's offerings at the same level. Were I to...

When it comes down to it, the GTX 660 and 660 Ti are technically twins. But aside from the number of cores, and memory, nearly $100 separates the two GPUs in price. So is that $100 worth it?While the GTX 660 Ti is more powerful and has more resources...

EVGA is Nvidia’s top partner in the western hemisphere and even though they don’t delve into triple slot cooling solutions and over the top aesthetics they always manage to create a great product that has a modern look and appeals to gamers in any...

The GTX 660 offers excellent performance on 1080p monitors and gives AMD serious competition. With speeds approaching those of last year’s high-end cards, it packs a wallop for a card its price....

When Kepler was introduced a few months ago, it was understandably only available on the high end video cards that were priced to all but the most hardcore PC gamer. That's usually the case when a company introduces new technologies. Well, the time...

The EVGA GTX 660 SC is without a doubt a very nice card at $229, the one thing that you must consider, however, is that AMD’s HD 7870 has been cut to the price of $249 from $299. Obviously, AMD’s price cuts have been in response to Nvidia’s release of...

While performance on the EVGA GTX 660 SC 2GB video card was exceptional in most of the video games and benchmarks we have ran, our expectations fell short during overclocking. However, we'd still like to acknowledge that the EVGA GTX 660 SC is an...

EVGA GTX 660 Superclocked is, as the name suggests, a factory overclocked card, which gives it a slight advantage over the reference GTX 660 right out of the box. For a card priced at about €220, it spews out quite nice performance at 1920x1080, in most...

The Geforce GTX 660 is a great value. If you're not looking to play on a jumbotron at 2560x1600, it will be enough to power your gaming sessions on the latest PC titles. With DVI-I and DVI-D inputs as well as DisplayPort and HDMI, it's more than ready...

We hebben 23 verschillende videokaarten voorbij zien komen. Wie gaat voor een zo goed mogelijke bang-for-the-buck , ofwel de beste prestaties voor de minste euro's, is bij de geteste kaarten het beste af met één van de betaalbare GeForce GTX 660...

International Review By Tweakers on 60

Uit de benchmarks blijkt dat er bij games nauwelijks prestatieverschillen tussen de GTX 660's zijn. De Asus-kaart blijkt de snelste, maar de voorsprong op de concurrentie is marginaal. Een game die met de andere GTX 660's onspeelbaar is, draait niet...
