Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 OC 6G review

for a very long time the PC gaming world was encountering a dry season of new illustrations cards, and now it appears we're in the midst of the incredible flood. Nvidia presented the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti only half a month back, and now GeForce GTX 1660 cards are leaving the woodwork.

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 OC 6G is a champion form of this GPU, as it includes a tolerable 45MHz production line overclock and improved cooling, and for the low cost of $219 (about £170, AU$310). This is an awesome designs card for Full HD gaming, particularly in the focused space, or in case you're simply beginning a spilling channel.

Cost and accessibility

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 OC 6G rings up for $219 (about £170, AU$310), which makes it the most reduced valued Turing-based designs card you can purchase at this moment. We were at that point awed by the esteem that GTX 1660 Ti cards brought to mid-go gamers at $279/£259/AU$469, however this card brings down the obstruction of section into PC gaming considerably further.

What's increasingly great is this new illustrations card is quite a lot more reasonable than the $299/£249/AU$499 Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 it's supplanting. The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 OC 6G likewise intensely undermines the AMD Radeon RX 590, which has normally retailed for $279/£249/AU$425.

Details and highlights

In fact, the GeForce GTX 1660 is still piece of the Nvidia Turing family, however it needs a considerable lot of the highlights found on its kin. Among the things you won't discover on this GPU contrasted with other Turing cards (RTX or GTX), are beam following centers, Tensor centers and even GDDR6 class memory.

Truth is stranger than fiction – all you get is the equivalent GDDR5 memory working at 8Gbps velocities, as found on the first GeForce GTX 1060.

Having said all that, this illustrations card still highlights a TU116 GPU fitted with Turing-based shaders. In spite of the fact that the GeForce GTX 1660 highlights a lower number of CUDA centers – and remember about the slower memory – than its GTX 1660 Ti kin, it increases higher base and lift clock paces to compensate for its insufficiencies.

The Gigabyte display we're trying here additionally includes some additional exceptional sauce with a 1,830MHz manufacturing plant overclock, which makes it a detectable couple of ticks quicker than the GPU's reference 1,785MHz lift clock. Furthermore, this model accompanies double Windforce 2X fans and a beefier heatsink, which you commonly wouldn't hope to discover on a passage level estimated designs card.

Test framework specs

CPU: 3.7Ghz Intel Core i7-8700K (hexa-center, 12MB reserve, up to 4.7GHz)
Ram : 32GB Vengeance LED DDR4 (3,200MHz)

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming

Power Supply: Corsair RM850x

Capacity: 512GB Samsung 960 Pro M.2 SSD (NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4)

Cooling: Thermaltake Floe Riing 360 TT Premium Edition

Case: Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB

Working framework: Windows 10 


In spite of the GeForce GTX 1660 resembling it's only a GTX 1060 with another layer of paint, this card offers some dumbfounding jumps in execution. All things considered, the GTX 1660 doesn't outpace the GTX 1070 similarly the GTX 1660 Ti has.

All the more essentially, the Nvidia GTX 1660 completely destroys the AMD Radeon RX 590, a GPU that as of now costs altogether more.

Outside of benchmarks, the GTX 1660 can deal with current amusements, and even at QHD (1440p) goals. Contract killer 2 played at 60 to 70 outlines for each second (fps) without dissent – and in case you're just playing at Full HD (1080p), you can anticipate that a much smoother 90 should 100fps experience.

4K gaming (3840 x 2160) is conceivable with the Nvidia GTX 1660, in spite of the fact that as far as we can tell Hitman 2 would regularly dip under 30fps, bringing about horrendously cumbersome interactivity.

Our test seat outfitted with the GTX 1660 kept running into somewhat more trouble with running Anthem at 1440p and 2160p, so we saw outline rates tumble to as low as 30 and 20fps separately. Be that as it may, when we adhered to a 1080p goals we saw Anthem keep running at a considerably more steady 50fps.

With everything taken into account, we would state the GeForce GTX 1660 is an illustrations card principally intended for Full HD encounters; be that as it may, you can drive it to play recreations at 2K, and, once in a while, 4K, goals relying upon how graphically requesting they are.

Setting recreations and benchmarking aside, the GTX 1660 additionally speaks to the least expensive approach to exploit Nvidia's new NVENC encoder for spilling. Between bit-rate investment funds of 25% for HEVC and 15% for H.264, this is one designs card we would prescribe to new gamers who additionally need to fiddle with livestreaming.

Last decision

When we originally began looking into the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 OC 6G, we weren't generally anticipating much. Not exclusively was it fundamentally a chopped down GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, it didn't include quicker memory than that found in the GeForce GTX 1060 it's intended to supplant – which implied we were considerably increasingly inspired once we saw the benchmark numbers.

Not exclusively is the GTX 1660 a surprisingly better designs card, it's likewise considerably more reasonable than its forerunner, and the ease places it in simple reach for some gamers, particularly newcomers.

In spite of the fact that it doesn't include any of the extravagant new highlights Nvidia has guaranteed with Turing, the new shaders and hidden TU116 GPU in this card give it all the oomph it needs to convey perceptibly better execution – also improved spilling.

Up to this point despite everything we've been prescribing the last-age Nvidia GTX 1060 or GTX 1050 Ti to hopeful PC gamers, yet the GeForce GTX 1660 has accepted the crown as the most perfectly awesome section level designs card you can purchase at the present time.
