Gigabyte’s GeForce GTX 660Ti WindForce overclock edition graphics card has been benchmarked by forum members at Chiphell. The Gigabyte GTX 660Ti WindForce OC uses a non-reference PCB design and higher clock speeds compared to the reference models.
Card packs 1344 Cores, 112 TMUs, 24 ROPs and a 2GB GDDR5 (192-bit) wide memory interface. Clock frequencies are running at 1033MHz on Core and 1111MHz on Boost while memory runs at a reference speed of 1502MHz QDR (6.0GHz Effective).
The card is cooled by Gigabyte’s WindForce cooler which makes utilized triangle cooling design. It comes with dual large fans and a three stacks of aluminum fin arrays through which two 8mm copper heatpipes run. Display outputs include 2 DVI, 1 HDMI and 1 Display port.
The user ran a few benchmarks at default clocked speeds and compared it against the Inno3D GTX 670 Ice Dragon GPU. Results below:
