GeForce GTX 660 Ti vs Geforce GTX 760

Intro

The GeForce GTX 660 Ti uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 915 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this specific card. It features 1344 SPUs as well as 112 TAUs and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Geforce GTX 760, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 980 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1502 MHz on this model. It features 1152 SPUs as well as 96 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 660 Ti 150 Watts
Geforce GTX 760 170 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (13%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Geforce GTX 760 should be 34% quicker than the GeForce GTX 660 Ti in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 192256 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 660 Ti 144000 MB/sec
Difference: 48256 (34%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 660 Ti is a bit (about 9%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Geforce GTX 760. (explain)

GeForce GTX 660 Ti 102480 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 760 94080 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8400 (9%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 760 is superior to the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, by a large margin. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 31360 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 660 Ti 21960 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 9400 (43%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.

GTX 760 is Direct X 11.1, not 11.0
and GTX 660 Ti is 11.0. not 11.1
Peter Smith says:
No nVidia card has a full DX 11.1 function set, GK104 is used by BOTH cards. Only AMD with 78xx or 79xx cards supports DX11.1, but only Windows 8 will offer it, and I am 100% sure no game developer will publish within the next 2 years a "DX 11.1 only" game.
So it's useless to insist in DX11.1, DX11 is enough for the next 24 month.
Peter Smith says:
Addendum:
If you can get a GTX 660 Ti for less money compared to a GTX 760, and if you want to have a card which consumes less power for almost the same speed, take the GTX 660 Ti. Also, many GTX 660 Ti OC cards (e.g. from ASUS) are faster than a stock GTX 760 card. So a GTX 660 Ti OC card is still the best choice.

Should i upgrade from a MSI N660Ti PE 2GD5/OC to a MSI N760 TF 4GD5/OC?

As of 12/23/ there are no 660ti's in the price range of the 760's. You can get a 660 FTW at newegg for $239.99 but the 760 is the same exact price.

nVidia is doing just like Intel and reaming us with prices. I got a gtx 260 in 2010 for $180 and despite all that time I have to shell out $200 for a faster card. Any card like the GTX 650 that is less than $200 is SLOWER than the card I bought 4 years ago.

And it doesn't matter.... 660ti... 760... you aren't really going to find a "deal" on any of them. You'd think after a new line of cards they would go down in price!!!!!

GTX 760 is better

GTX 760 for higher resolutions.

I now have the GeForce GTX 660 TI and I have started streaming and I stream WoW fine. I have a quad core 4GB or memory. but I cant even come close to Streaming CS:GO or DAYZ. Does anyone know if buying the GTX 760 and doubling my RAM from 4 to 8 will allow me to stream DayZ and CS:GO? please hit me up with a e-mail or any information you guys have on what I can do to better my stream!
