Thanks to Gigabyte, today we have something really new for you! NDA drop day coverage of Nvidia's newest core, the GTX 660 Ti.
Not only that but we have Gigabyte's non-reference (partially, anyway) factory overclocked version!
The GTX 660 Ti is aimed, not surprisingly, under the GTX670. This puts it somewhere in the region of the 7870 and my GTX580 (which I will compare it to).
I feel like we know Gigabyte pretty well at this point, so rather than put the same old info let's hear about their quality assurance process instead:
In all my time in computing, I haven't ever gotten a DOA Gigabyte product. To me, that says their QA process works!
We'll be testing the Gigabyte GTX660Ti OC using our usual test rig, it's towards the top of the pile. It's comprised of the following components: a Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H motherboard, an Intel Core i7 3770k processor, 2x2GB G.Skill RipjawsX 2133MHz 7-10-7 ram, EVGA GTX580 (for comparison), OCZ Vertex 3 240GB MaxIOPS SSD, Antec HCP-850 PSU, Thermaltake Armor Revo chassis and a Phanteks PH-TC14PE CPU cooler. You won't beat it without going to $1000 CPUs, and even then you're in for a fight!
