Here is our testing run through the game, for your reference.
BF3 is a good start for NVIDIA and the GeForce GTX 660 Ti is able to beat the HD 7870 and even the HD 7950 Boost at 1680×1050 and 1080p resolutions. At 2560×1600 the HD 7950 and the GeForce GTX 660 Ti are basically a tie though, as they are at 5760×1080 for those of you with three displays.
Compared to the GTX 670, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti does see a 13-14% performance penalty thanks to the memory bandwidth changes.
