Combining great value and performance, the Galaxy GTX 660 GC 2GB offers mainstream PC gamers access to the latest advances in GPU technology and unheard of levels of graphics power without breaking the bank. It's based on the NVIDIA's latest 28nm architecture and features 1072MHz Boost Clock - higher than the reference frequency of 1033MHz, delivering more graphics power for smoother, more responsive gameplay. The improved power handling and ultra-efficient cooling of Galaxy’s custom design deliver enhanced overclock potential and energy efficiency.
Similar to the Ti version, the foundation of the GTX 660 GC is a Galaxy custom PCB with significant design improvements, including an improved layout for more efficient signal path, high quality shielded inductors to maintain cleaner signal and eliminate coil whine, and thru-board ventilation to help keep power regulating components cool. The Galaxy Force Air bracket has been included as well to further facilitate the removal of heat from the system.
As is the tradition with Galaxy GC Edition graphics cards, the GTX 660 GC is equipped with a unique custom cooling solution. The cooler is designed with a highly effective dual fan system with aerodynamically and acoustically optimized blades that keep fan noise to an absolute minimum even at high speeds. Beneath the fans, a high surface area aluminum heat sink with triple heat pipes maintains very cool GPU temps even under extended run times with heavy workload.
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.
NVIDIA ADAPTIVE VERTICAL SYNC
Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
NVIDIA SURROUND WITH UP TO FOUR MONITORS
Nothing is as breathtaking as playing your favorite games across three monitors. At 5760 x 1080, the expanded field of view fully engages human peripheral vision and provides for the most immersive experience in racing and flight simulators. Add in a fourth display to keep tabs on chat, email or web while you are gaming.
TWO NEW ANTI-ALIASING MODES: FXAA AND TXAA
Anti-aliasing smoothes out jagged edges but can be demanding on framerates. FXAA is a new antialiasing technology that produces beautiful smooth lines with minimal performance impact. And with Kepler based GPUs, you'll be able to enable FXAA in hundreds of game titles through the NVIDIA Control Panel. The second mode, TXAA, is an in-game option that combines MSAA, temporal filtering, and post processing for even higher visual fidelity.
NVIDIA 3D VISION READY
NVIDIA 3D Vision brings a fully immersive, stereoscopic 3D experience to the PC. A combination of high-tech wireless glasses and advanced software, 3D Vision transforms hundreds of PC games into full stereoscopic 3D. Get up to 2x monitor and keyboard brightness with NVIDIA 3D LightBoost technology. In addition, you can enjoy 3D movies and 3D digital photographs in eye popping, crystal-clear quality.
