World’s Most Powerful GeForce GTX 660 Ti Video Card, ASUS GeForce GTX 660Ti DirectCU II TOP

Like we’ve reported here, Nvidia has charged the $300 price point and it’s mostly using custom pre-overclocked cards as the strategy and the GK104-300-KD-A2 GPU as the weapon of choice.

ASUS’ new DirectCU II TOP graphics adapter is, at the moment, the fastest GTX 660 Ti model in the world. The famous Taiwanese manufacturer never went for Nvidia’s reference design, but has gone for a custom GTX 670 PBGC instead. The ASUS GeForce GTX 660Ti DirectCU II TOP video card clocks the GK104 GPU at an impressive 1050 MHz right out of the factory and that’s a 16 percent overclocked compared to what Nvidia recommends for the GTX 600 Ti cards. There are 2048 MB or GDDR5 video memory on board that work on a narrower 192-bit BUS and are clocked at the reference 6008 MHz effective reference frequency, videocardz reports.

We’re quite disappointed that ASUS went to so much trouble with the custom PCB, the much improved cooling system and the extreme factory overclock on the GPU, but left the memory frequency untouched. We believe that a 10 percent overclock would have made the ASUS GeForce GTX 660Ti DirectCU II TOP video card absolutely unique. As the card is set up, right now it’s the fastest, but in the future some manufacturer might even go further. The price is slated at a rather high 359 EUR and that’s almost $442 for the American buyer.
