Traditional Nvidia add in board (AIB) partner, American company EVGA has just launched its own GTX 660 video cards, but these have higher frequencies than the reference specifications and 50% more GDDR5 video memory.
The company has a total of six different GeForce GTX 660
video cards that all comes with high factory overclocks.
There are two main series in EVGA’s GTX 660 line and these are the GTX 660 FTW (For the Win) cards and the GTX 660 SC (SuperClock) cards.
We’ll start with the more “modest” SuperClock line.
EVGA has four GTX 660 SuperClock cards. The most affordable one is the EGA GeForce GTX 660 SC 2 GB that has the GPU clocked at 1046 MHz with a Boost option of 1111 MHz.
The company also offers a 3 GB version with the same frequency setup.
Also EVGA has special “Signature 2” versions of these two cards and these models feature a different cooling system that has two fans and offers a 15% improved cooling capacity.
The frequencies of the “Signature 2” cards are the same with the SuperClock models. Only the cooling system and the price are changed.
Now we move on to the FTW cards that have an even higher GPU
clock speed of 1072 MHz with a Boost of 1137 MHz.
EVGA only has two GTX 660 FTW cards and these are both “Signature 2” models with the dual-fan cooling system.
The difference between the two lays in the simple fact that one has the standard 2 GB of GDDR5 video memory while the second has a 3 GB memory.
