Aliens vs. Predator (2010)
AMD-based products are traditionally fast in Aliens vs. Predator (2010). However, this time around, the Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition can only win with antialiasing turned on (thanks to the GTX 660 Ti's 192-bit bus). Without antialiasing, the new Nvidia solution is ahead. The Radeon HD 7950 is even better in both versions, though, but the GTX 660 Ti is 36-37% faster than the GTX 560 Ti-448 and close to the GTX 670 at the default and overclocked frequencies, respectively.
Lost Planet 2
As opposed to Aliens vs. Predator (2010), Lost Planet 2 generally runs better on Nvidia GPUs and this time is no exception. The GeForce GTX 660 Ti is ahead of the Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition by up to 50% and ahead of the Radeon HD 7950 by 26%. The GeForce GTX 560 Ti-448 is completely outperformed as well. The GeForce GTX 660 Ti even overtakes the GTX 670 when overclocked.
Sid Meier’s Civilization V
AMD is on top again in Civilization V. The Nvidia-based products find it hard to compete, especially with enabled antialiasing.
Total War: Shogun 2
The new driver returns the performance of the GeForce GTX 6xx series in Total War: Shogun 2 to their previously high level, so the GeForce GTX 660 Ti is preferable to both Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition and Radeon HD 7950.
Crysis 2 proves the superiority of the GeForce GTX 660 Ti over the Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition, yet the new card finds it difficult to compete with the Radeon HD 7950, especially if the latter has the updated BIOS. Compared to the GTX 560 Ti-448 and GTX 670, the GeForce 660 Ti performs just like in the previous tests.
