With an entry price of $229, and our own SuperClocked card fetching the same amount, this card outperforms AMD’s offerings in the low-$200 market. We unfortunately haven’t been able to test the overclocking capabilities of this card yet. However, at the manufacturer-clocked speeds, it is a clear winner over the 7870, which is the ore expensive card. For me, that seems like a no-brainer. Obviously, overclocking capabilities will be a factor for those interested in squeezing the most horsepower out of their cards.
Nvidia specifically targeted the 1080p gamers out there, and looking over our tests, even the 660 Ti only barely beat it at that resolution. For $70 less, most gamers are going to want to go with this card, unless they are planning to go to a 1440p or triple-monitor setup.
