Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Results
Battlefield: Bad Company 2's DX11 Frostbite 1.5 engine is old but still a good test of a GPU’s geometry shading power. The GTX 660 Ti handled the game with ease, scoring near 100FPS at the 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution, with all three custom cards surpassing 100FPS.
At the resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, it was still fairly impressive, scoring about 14% behind the more powerful GTX 670. At both resolutions, the GTX 660 Ti was much better than both the Radeon HD 7870 and the HD 7950, outperforming the former by about 35% and the latter by nearly 20%.
Looking at GPU Boost performance, the GTX 660 Ti wasn't able to peak as high as it did before, achieving only 1045MHz, however, this was still 15% higher than the default clock speed.
Far Cry 2 Results
Far Cry 2 uses a DX10 engine and as such, isn't as taxing on newer cards. Nevertheless, even at the highest resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, with 8x AA turned on, the GTX 660 Ti was once again able to outperform both the HD 7870 and the HD 7950. It was however about 25% behind the GTX 670.
The custom cards weren't too impressive on Far Cry, averaging only about 4-5% better than the reference specced card.
