GTX 260 versus GTX 660
I just replaced my Asus ENGTX 260 TOP 896MB by a Gigabyte GV-N660 OC-2GB.:clap: I tried the new card with Batman Arkham City and found out that there is not much difference as far as frame rates are concerned with the Asus ENGTX 260 TOP I bought in 2009!:blarg: I wonder if the new card is really better. Is there a benchmark comparing the 2 cards?
Thanks for guidance.
Have you re-installed the drivers, using the latest?
GeForce GTX 260 vs GeForce GTX 660 – Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare
30% only more memory bandwith :P
Yes I use the latest Nvidia driver valid for both cards.
Thanks for the link benchmarking the 2 cards. The Gigabyte GV-N660 OC 2GD stays cool and is completely silent when I play. This is great.:thumb: For the rest, I think changes are minor... :haha:
Maybe the Nvidia Drivers are developped for new cards which can be another motivation to by a new card ... I wonder...:shok:
What is the rest of your specs, sounds like a bottleneck.
^^ Agree. What is your CPU/ram, Sounds like its a cpu bottleneck if I was to guess. You should have a very noticeable increase in fps in everything.
I'm guessing straight out that his processor is bottlenecking.
For me, a 260 to 560Ti was a pretty big jump, but was bottlenecked by my Q6600
Drop in a new mb/cpu/ram and the 560Ti doubled it's framerates.
^ agreed, my Phenom II 940 was a huge bottleneck for my 560ti, dropped in an i7 920 clocked @ 4ghz and i got a 50% increase and no stutters.
Thanks for all the relevent comments.:thumb:
My monitor is a BenQ 19''. CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 3.16 Ghz. DDR2: 4GB. Win 7 64 bits.
I think I'd better buy a quad core CPU if I can find one with old socket 775 ...:shok: Tell me if it will make difference.
