Nvidia’s Kepler lineup has been turning out to be a performance juggernaut, offering a host of new innovations and features, some of which weren’t even imagined by enthusiasts only one GPU generation ago. Things such as Adaptive V-Sync, new antialiasing modes, and the ground-breaking GPU Boost were unheard of, but have really evolved into a game-changer for most of us. We love innovation as much as anyone, but we’re also big bang-for-the-buck freaks, and the GTX 670 offered killer performance at a lower price than the flagship GTX 680.
That said, we’re pretty stingy on occasion with our hard earned money, and the GTX 670 may be overkill for a large percentage of the consumers out there looking to experience those innovative features without breaking the bank. And this is where the GTX 660 Ti comes into play, with today’s launch an extension of what we’ve seen in the rest of the Kepler lineup so far.
Today we’re looking at the ZOTAC GTX 660 Ti AMP! Edition, a boldly-styled card that comes with a more attractive price tag of $330 for those on a more modest budget. The AMP! Edition sports a Dual Silencer cooler and a factory overclock that promises big performance results, and we have high hopes since the architecture here is nearly the same as the GTX 670.
Can’t wait to see how this card slays the bench? Read on to find out.
