Palit's GTX 660 Ti Jetstream offering is nearly identical to their custom GTX 670 that we've featured here not too long ago, equipped with an oversized but effective cooler, slight factory overclock and a competitive price tag. Can you really ask for more?
Two months ago we reviewed the mid-high end Palit GTX 670 Jetstream Edition, and it was a card we really liked thanks to its factory overclock and aggressive pricing relative to the competition. Not to be confused with the GK106 based GTX 660, the GTX 660 Ti Jetstream from Palit offers the same bells and whistles albeit at a lower, more mainstream price point.
Since the GTX 660 Ti uses an identical PCB design and heatpipe cooler (takes up slightly more than two slots) as its more illustrious sibling, we will skip over the usual hardware walkthrough and focus on the merits of the final iteration of the Kepler GK104 family.

Memory Size / Type
Like the earlier GTX 670, the GTX 660 Ti uses a cut down die with one disabled SMX unit. One of its four memory controllers have also been disabled, giving it an effective 192-bit GDDR5 bus for transfers.
