Pushing the GTX 660Ti to its limits.

Good: One of the fastest GTX 660Ti overclocks from manufacturer; Runs very cool and quiet; Comes with a decent mouse surface.
Bad: The regular GTX 660Ti AMP! Edition performs just as well and comes with free game; Very little headroom for further overclocking.
Price: AED 1,320

Testbed

Below are the details of how each benchmark was conducted with specific details of settings used. All of the below benchmarks were run at a resolution of 1920×1080.

Overclocking

Now the Zotac GTX 660Ti AMP! Extreme Edition is not only the highest factory overclocked GTX 660Ti I have seen, but also one of the fastest overclocks on that card period. With that in mind, I wasn’t expecting much, if any, of a significant overclock. And just as I thought, I didn’t manage to get more that 1129 MHz, that’s just a 3% speed boost, with our benchmarks showing just a frame increase in almost all the above tests. Others fared little better with a 2 fps increase. Basically overclocking the Zotac GTX 660Ti AMP! Extreme Edition won’t get you anything, but that’s not to say that the base performance is anything but spectacular.
