  • newegg Kepler GPU Architecture NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not just for maximum performance in the latest DirectX 11 games, but optimal performance per watt. The new SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant and power efficient graphics card.
  • newegg NVIDIA GPU Boost Up until now, GPUs have operated at a fixed clock speed when playing 3D games, even if they have the potential to run faster. GPU Boost intelligently monitors graphics work load and increases the clock speed whenever possible. The result is that the GPU always performs at its peak and you get the highest framerate possible.
  • newegg MSI Power Edition Graphics The MSI GTX 660 Ti Power Edition graphics card uses the MSI Power Edition architecture: Triple Overvoltage with Afterburner support allows adjustments to the GPU, Memory and PLL voltages so the full potential of the graphics card can be released and performance overclocked by up to 18.2%. The power supply has also been improved to increase current flow by 17% compared to the reference board and maintain high stability during overclocking.
  • newegg Twin Frozr IV MSI GTX 660 Ti Power Edition graphics card features the new Twin Frozr IV cooling. With MSI's unique Dust Removal technology, the fans automatically run in reverse at startup to optimize cooling performance. The internationally exclusive Propeller Blade technology delivers 20% more airflow compared to conventional fans and also increases the cooling surface. Dual 8cm temperature-controlled fans, SuperPipe technology, and nickel-plated copper base effectively reduce the temperature by up to 14? and noise by 17.1dB!
  • newegg Military Class III MSI Military Class III components have passed rigorous MIL-STD-810G testing by an independent testing laboratory to deliver the assurance for quality and stability.

1 out of 5 eggsSlowly starting to die

Pros: Gives me a steady 60 FPS in all games.
Blue LEDs seems to be nice.
Got BL2 free.

Cons: Drivers crashing no matter which version it is.
Card tends to overheat with the furmark test.
Got artifacts on TF2 and LoL, which both those games are the least graphic intensive stuff
Paid $300 for a broken card while friend paid 90 and his seems just fine...

Other Thoughts: The intel HD 4000 is sadly more reliable then the 660ti unfortunately. After having it for about a year its already starting to break down.... Drivers crash all the time! (Re-installed win8 about 3 times and still get driver issues)
At some point i did get slight artifacts but i didnt think of it much since it was only one time it showed up

1 out of 5 eggsCard produces really deep blacks

Pros: Works great when it works.... The rest of the time it produces a perfectly black picture.

Cons: Crashes to the point of being unusable. I can't believe I spent $299 on this brick.

After being incredibly frustrated, I started reading around to try to figure out why my card keeps giving me a black screen. Sometimes it comes back, sometimes it doesn't. What I found really has me angry. Apparently, MSI used an overvoltage scheme on this particular card to boost performance and it is causing many owners to have problems. I fully expect MSI to answer this post saying "There's no problem with this card", which is a pretty blatant lie since there are so many reports to the contrary. I need to RMA, but I'm feeling like I never want to touch MSI ever again.

3 out of 5 eggsNot happy about MSI's overvolting

Pros: -no problems yet
-fast
-stays relatively cool while playing games such as Skyrim on highest settings

Cons: MSI overvolted the reference card substantially, which would have been nice to know before purchasing. I haven't experienced any problems yet but I don't like the increased voltage of the card.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

There are no issues with this product, and as you are happy with the performance of the product.

1. MSI respects the result supplied by Tom's Hardware, however we have confidence and believe our products would not cause any customer RMA concerns.
2. Since MSI designs these custom products with overclocking in mind, we "supercharge" these cards because we anticipated enthusiasts to overclock. Because of this design decision and the higher component quality, we're able to provide more power to the board resulting in higher performance and GPU Boost function without reducing the lifespan of the graphics card or warranty terms.
3. MSI's graphics cards including GTX 670 and GTX 660 Ti passed stringent tests and we stand behind our products with a standard 3-year limited warranty.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the product, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at usreview@msi.com and we will be more than happy to assist you, thank you.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks fine then sudden black screen

Pros: Great performance out of the box. First graphics card I have bought.

Cons: While running on stock settings, I started having issues after 4 months where the graphics card kernel driver stopped responding (as close as i can remember). The screen would go black for about 30 seconds then come back and repeat about every 5 minutes. I solved this by following a tutorial i found on how optimize/overclock the 660TI PE. Everything pan fine until now where the computer wont even startup correctly. I see the windows 7 logo, then it goes to a blank screen. I am able to run the computer in safe mode.

Other Thoughts: I would like to get a replacement for the 660TI PE that I have.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat performance for the $$

Pros: Great GPU. Plenty quick for pretty much every game I play.

Cons: Bought nVidia specifically for 3D support on my Sammy 7 series active 3D set, pretty angry that they actually charge to unlock the feature in their drivers. My G53 laptop's drivers have it unlocked for free so I didn't expect it to cost extra. That's pretty deceptive. And the cost, $40, is like a kick in the nuts for buying their product.

Other Thoughts: So I'm not using the 3D feature, while money is not the issue, I just won't buy it out of principle, I even would have paid extra for the GPU knowing that it had 3D support, but I'm not going to pay for a key and deal with their SecuRom-like process. That was my main buying decision over AMD, and I may not buy nVidia next time because of this. I'll just have to keep using my laptop whenever I want to watch something in 3D.

Still otherwise a great product.
Runs everything I've thrown at it pretty smooth in 1080P with AA, graphics quality is stunning compared to the 460m I've been using for the past few years.

5 out of 5 eggsoutstanding TF4 cooling and linux support

Pros: Where to begin ...

- TF4 cools GPU to below 40C on adaptive VSync. Better yet, infrared images of TF4 in hardware.fr show most of the card below 50C with only isolated hot spots the size of GPU socket or VRM modules. Every other video card shows uniform high temps, same as GPU, through most of the card.

- stock speeds: I wanted 660 Ti performance with the best power consumption, temperatures and component lifetime. This card already gives 50% higher performance than my MSI 560 Ti O/C (21,000 FPS vs 14,600 FPS according to glxgears).

- superb nvidia linux support: I upgraded the nvidia drivers in preparation for buying this card and was pleasantly surprised with a 10% performance increase on the existing 560 Ti. [Got this card after RMA of a 7950 due to unstable and low-performing AMD linux drivers; lesson learned.].

- inaudible, even on boot I can't hear the famous reversed, dust-removing fan operation

- great improvement on my (already good) MSI 560 Ti O/C. High performance OpenGL apps like flightgear run at 45 - 60 FPS (card sync to VBlank) on adaptive VSync and 1920x1200 resolution. Could hit 60 without the adaptive VSync but that adds 10C to temps.

- outstanding pre-sales support from MSI, who explained that the POST problems mentioned in this card come from a BIOS that required GOP support and has now been replaced with an older BIOS. My card booted without problem, although I had a USB at the ready to change the BIOS.

Cons: - has 4 VRAM chips not covered by heatsink, 2 in front and 2 in back. Measured the temps on the ones in the back with an infrared thermometer and they got up to 45C. Some motherboard temps are in that range too but MSI could have sprung for a small heatsink for them. My TF2 560 Ti had no VRAM heatsinks at all and it didn't cause any problems, but why take the risk when the rest of the card is so beautifully engineered?

- 192 bit memory bus: understanding that the memory bus is all that separates this card from a 670, but this was too extreme, may hurt at high resolutions.

Other Thoughts: TF4 is a real accomplishment from a distinguished engineering team at MSI that has just outdone itself; there may never be a need for a TF5 now that GPUs are going to smaller manufacturing processes that result in cooler temperatures.

I really like this card and it will still be a sad day when I replace it with an MSI 860 Ti.

1 out of 5 eggsMSI's Caught Cheating

Pros: Hopefully a clever lawyer will pick up on the issue and get me a settlement check.

Cons: Constant video hardware errors cause the display driver to stop working and recover.

Tom's Hardware has an article about the issue titled "MSI Caught Overvolting GTX 660 Ti, 670 Power Edition Cards", which explains that MSI violated design specifications ultimately causing a chip to receive 9.3V instead of 5V. This huge overvoltage causes many to not get past POST, and others like me to have a completely unstable system.

Other Thoughts: You can see MSI's official response on their site, the page is titled "MSI Releases the statement for the test of GTX 660 Ti and GTX 670 from Tom's Hardware".

It is basically legal speak that says keep RMAing your card for the next 3 years.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

There are no issues with this product as it was intended in design.
If you believe that your product is defective, please proceed to file a warranty claim online.

5 out of 5 eggsIt plays everything.

Pros: I picked this card over the OC version because I didn't want overclocked. I wanted longevity and raw power. And this delivers.

Some people warned me against this card because it's only 192-bits. They said it might have issues with anti aliasing. But I play all of my games at the absolute highest settings. Crysis, Starcraft II, Skyrim, Borderlands II, Saints Row 3. They all run perfectly with no visible frame drops, and I turn anti aliasing all the way up.

I don't know how it will do with games in the next generation, but it works perfectly for games of this one. It has given me exactly zero compatibility issues. I love this card so much.

Cons: None
