In April we published a big round-up of 23 graphics cards with AMD Radeon HD 7870 / 7950 and Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 / 660 Ti GPUs. Inno3D has since sent us their iChill GeForce GTX 660, which we of course want to compare to the other cards we tested last month.
The Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 660 immediately stands out due to it large, three-slot wide cooler. It has two 9cm fans and four 6mm heatpipes that transmit the heat to two separate heatsinks. It's nice-looking graphics card.
Inno3D overclocked the GeForce GTX 660 quite a bit, from 980 MHz and a 1033 MHz Boost Clock to 1059 Mhz with 1124 MHz Boost clock. The video memory speed has been increased from 1502 MHz to 1553 MHz. While ASUS and EVGA have higher clock frequencies for the GPU, Inno3D has the card with the highest memory speed.
The GeForce GTX 660 has the typical 2 GB of DDR5 RAM. On the back there are two 6-pin PEG connectors for the power supply, and there's an SLI connector. Monitor connectors consist of two DVI ports, HDMI and DisplayPort. As a bonus you get an iChill mousepad.
Right now the card is available for an average price of € 197, which is in line with more standard (and not overclocked) GTX 660s. Faster cards such as the EVGA GeFoce GTX 660 Superclocked or ASUS GTX660-DC2T-2GD5 are 10 or 20 euros more expensive on average.
