Benchmarks Real world tests of GeForce GTX 770 vs 660

Passmark Industry standard benchmark for overall graphics card performance

3DMark 11, as the name might probably suggest, makes use of the Microsoft DirectX 11 API and puts every feature of it at its disposal to use, creating astonishingly realistic visuals.

3DMark Vantage (Texture Fill) Industry standard benchmark that tests DirectX performance

Crysis: Warhead (2013) 1920x1080 - Enthusiast Quality + 4xAA

The game was by far the most hyped and anticipated game in 2007, and forums were full of "Can my system run Crysis?

Far Cry 3 1920 x 1080 - Ultra Quality + 4x MSAA + Enh. AtoC

The game is a typical linear first-person shooter, but offers a talent tree, fast paced action and one-on-one duels with special game mechanics.

Battlefield 3 (2013) 1920x1080 - Ultra quality + FXAA-HIGH

GeForce GTX 770
126.2 fps
GeForce GTX 660
82.5 fps
Overall, the card is almost inaudible in idle and quiet while gaming, but there just is no improvement over the already quiet reference cooler.

The GTX 770 WindForce OC is no different, but the improvement over the reference design cooler is, nevertheless, not that big because NVIDIA's cooler is already quite good.
