If we go back to August, you may remember the Geforce GTX 660 Ti being released to offer the general consumer a bit more bang for buck over the GTX 670 by giving close performance, but with a much lower cost. At this time, we had the Gigabyte overclock edition land with us and it even ended up walking away with our Editor’s Choice award.

Today sees us taking a look at the GTX 660 TI again, but this time from a brand that has only ever graced us once before; Palit who believe that their model can keep up with more illustrious brands that we normally deal with and so we see their JetStream 2GB edition pass through our labs to be put through its paces.

Before we jump in the deep-end and take a look at the performance on offer, we need to take a look at the packaging and bundle that Palit provide to the consumer as we all want to see what extra goodies you get for you money, right? Once this is out of the way, we can take a closer look at the card itself and its JetStream cooling technology which is said to provide an innovative and optimised cooling solution, and this will definitely be something we’ll put to the test.

Included in the testing of the cooler, we’re also be running this card through our barrage of benchmark applications and games to see what this card from Palit can do and how it compares against similar cards on the market on both the Nvidia and AMD side of the market.

    It’s really impressive. I thought the narrower memory bus would strangle it but it’s not to be. Makes you wonder why people would spend the extra scratch on a GTX 670

    • because when you get a GTX 670 you can also overclock that. Most reviews tend to go for the “if you overclock this card (the GTX 660Ti in this case) you can catch up with the next one in the series” (the GTX 670) but then if you had the next one in the series (the GTX 670) you could overclock that too and reach the next one in the series (GTX 680)..and the cycle continues…

        I know. It’s a vicious cycle. I was sceptical of my GTX 660Ti because of the narrow bus but I decided on it just via reading reviews. I’m glad I did & saved the extra money I would’ve spent on a GTX 670.

      Ryan has a point with the overclock thing. I was waiting for the EVGA GTX 670 FTW but since then I got a EVGA GTX 660 Ti (standard edition) and I’m glad I saved my self half the cost, there isn’t a single game I can’t max out on everything. I only run 1920×1080, but check another one of these into SLI and you’ve got a system to be proud of.

    For goodness’s sake, please change the COLOR of the graph, and highlight the scores for the card you are reviewing against its closest competitors. It was PAINFUL to read those graphs. Seriously.
    Otherwise a decent review.
