GTX 660ti 670 or 680?

I don't know which to get... The GTX 660ti the 670 or the 680. I won't be getting the 680 since its only 5% faster than 670 but i want to know how the 660ti stacks up against them both.

I use dual 23" inch monitors running at 1920 x 1080. I only use one monitor in game.

CPU - AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor

  1. The GeForce GTX 660 Ti comes with a core clock frequency of 915 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1500 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 1344 SPUs, 112 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.
    Compare all of that to the Geforce GTX 680, which has a clock frequency of 1006 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1502 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 1536 SPUs, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.


    Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

    Power Consumption (Max TDP)

    GeForce GTX 660 Ti 150 Watts
    Geforce GTX 680 195 Watts
    Difference: 45 Watts (30%)
    Memory Bandwidth

    As far as performance goes, the Geforce GTX 680 should theoretically be quite a bit better than the GeForce GTX 660 Ti in general.

    Geforce GTX 680 192256 MB/sec
    GeForce GTX 660 Ti 144000 MB/sec
    Difference: 48256 (34%)
    Texel Rate

    The Geforce GTX 680 should be quite a bit (more or less 26%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 660 Ti.


    Geforce GTX 680 128768 Mtexels/sec
    GeForce GTX 660 Ti 102480 Mtexels/sec
    Difference: 26288 (26%)
    Pixel Rate

    The Geforce GTX 680 is a lot (approximately 47%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions without slowing down too much.
    Geforce GTX 680 32192 Mpixels/sec
    GeForce GTX 660 Ti 21960 Mpixels/sec
    Difference: 10232 (47%)


    SO 680 IS ALWAYS A BETTER OPTION.
  2. What about these 2? they seem very similar to me but i don't really understand GPU's

  3. I was recently in the same position as you and i ended up getting this http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-GeForce-GTX670-Nvidia-Graphics/dp/B008BX2CFY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1360145817&sr=8-1 it truly is a beast i play on the same size monitor and resolution as you and every game i have played so far on max settings i have got 60+ fps
  4. since the 660 and 670 is quite same....
    I would definitely go with the TOP. I've heard that EVGA has the best warranty so if your looking for the best warranty instead, go for EVGA. But if your not looking at that, You should go with the ASUS TOP. Best cooler and more quiet card.
  5. The 660Ti and the 670 are most definitely not the same. The big difference between the two gpu's is one is a aftermarket card with a non reference card reference cards come with blower design coolers where as aftermarket fans are built with cooling and noise more into consideration.

    1. ROPS: The 670 has 32
    The 660Ti/660 has 24
    2. Memory Bit: The 660/ti 192bit
    The 670 has 256
    3. CUDA cores: The 660/Ti has 960 with non ti, and 1344 with the Ti
    The 670 has 1344
  6. If you get a non reference card you could go with something like these.

    If you go reference pick one of the EVGA cards I wouldn't touch any of the other branded reference branded coolers.


    Also, given the pricing between the 670 and the 680 the 680 is not worth it.
