The Card

Checking out the card you can see the design is very similar to other JetStream models we've seen with that massive cooler present and two large fans. We've got an awesome black and gold design and behind the fans you can see the large heatsink and a number of copper heatpipes present.

As we start to move around you can see we've got power provided by a dual 6-pin PCIe setup while closer to the front we've got two SLI connectors which give us the ability to run up to three of these video cards at the same time.

Looking at the I/O department you can see we've got two Dual-Link DVI ports alongside a DisplayPort and HDMI connector to round off the connectivity side of things.

 

 

Specifications

 

As you'd expect the Palit GTX 660 Ti JetStream is overclocked out of the box and looking below you can see we've got a default core clock of 1006MHz which in turn gives us a boost of 1085MHz.

 

This is up on the reference 915MHz / 980MHz setup. As for the 2GB of GDDR5 that's also been bumped from 6008MHz QDR to 6108MHz QDR. Not a massive bump, but it's at least something, especially since we saw MSI choose to leave the memory clock alone on its Power Edition model.

Since we already looked at an out of the box overclocked card from MSI we'd figure we'd take the time to see how we could go overclocking this card today. Looking above you can see the core came in at 1096MHz which gives us a boost clock of 1175MHz while the 2GB of GDDR5 was pushed up to 6600MHz QDR.

 

This is a nice overclock and we should see some strong gains over the reference clocked version.
