Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 OC 6G

"Nvidia's latest mainstream GPU, the GeForce GTX 1660, aims for gamers who need solid 60fps-plus performance with AAA games at 1080p, and even higher frame rates for esports titles. Gigabyte's OC version hits those marks well."

Introduction

With the silicon from the just-propelled GeForce GTX 1660 Ti still warm, Nvidia is keeping the manufacture lines moving maximum capacity with another new standard GPU, the GeForce GTX 1660. Estimated beginning at $219 for base models, the GeForce GTX 1660 is impressively less expensive than the base variants of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti ($279, a distinction of $60) yet offers a considerable lot of similar advantages. The key one? The muscle to play well known multiplayer titles at 1080p goals over 60 outlines for each second (fps), even above 100fps now and again. The first GTX 1660 card we tried, Gigabyte's $219 GeForce GTX 1660 OC 6G, is the GTX 1660 in genuinely stripped-down structure, yet it gives strong execution and makes a fine standard update from past gen video cards like the GeForce GTX 960, GTX 1050, or GTX 1060.


Gamers on a Budget, Gather 'Round

Like the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, the GeForce GTX 1660 is a standard waypoint between low-end Nvidia cards like the GeForce GTX 1050 and a lot pricier GeForce RTX line. The card conveys every one of the advantages that Nvidia did with its change to the Turing engineering, while at the same time deserting the particular Tensor and RT centres that give the GeForce RTX line of cards their more expensive rates. 



Based off the equivalent TU116 Turing chip as the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, the GeForce GTX 1660 is, generally, a downsized adaptation of the Ti card, with one outstanding distinction: the utilization of GDDR5 memory, rather than GDDR6. (The two cards have 6GB.) This minimization doesn't appear to influence the throughput of the memory (the two groups of the card are evaluated to keep running at a consistent 192.1GBps), yet it is interesting that Nvidia is making such a major stride back in this division in any case.

Past that, nonetheless, the GeForce GTX 1660 is practically indistinguishable to the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, put something aside for some basic downsizes in the lift clock recurrence, the power utilization, and the number of CUDA centres accessible to render on.

Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 1660 OC 6G: The Walk-Around

As a base card, the Gigabyte GTX 1660 OC 6G is typically negligible in each feeling of the word, from its structure to its specs to the absence of included lighting anyplace the card... 



The card itself estimates 8.8 inches front to back, which makes it a solid match for most medium-measure work area case, and it could even fit into a MicroATX case in the event that you laid every one of your links right. It requires only one eight-stick control connector from your PSU. 

On the trailing edge, we discovered three DisplayPort 1.4 openings, just as one HDMI 2.0b. No DVI or VirtualLink ports here, as Gigabyte means to eliminate costs by likewise eliminating the number of connectors on the I/O backplane.


Just a Touch of Overclocking

Ordinarily, this is where we'd talk about the overclocking capability of a card, however tragically, on account of the Gigabyte GTX 1660 OC, we were fastened to the organization's exclusive Aorus Engine to deal with the undertaking. 


Aorus Engine performed carriage with this card. Basically attempting to change the fan speed could make the entire program solidify up, and it even made PC Labs' whole testbed collide with BSOD on two events. When I could get an OC profile to spare and apply, the application would again hang and keep me from propelling standard benchmarks, for example, Fire Strike Ultra in 3DMark or the benchmark of Far Cry 5.

So, between the accidents and lockups, I managed to get in one 3DMark test before anything smashed, with an additional 175Hz to the lift clock and 250Hz to the memory clock. The outcomes were around 7 per cent superior to the first run, which is genuinely standard for outsider cards that as of now have some sort of overclocking done out of the case. 

1660: An Nvidia Win for the Mainstream

 Similarly, as the GeForce GTX, 1660 Ti made obtaining AMD's Radeon RX Vega 56 cards resemble poor esteem, Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 1660 OC 6G puts the aggressively estimated AMD Radeon RX 590 out of a pickle. That AMD card may accompany a few decent packaged recreations temporarily, however doubtlessly AMD may be constrained to make a value proceed onward the RX 590 to remain on pace. By and by, Nvidia is prevailing with regards to rounding out an all-encompassing and adjusted GPU line for gamers...and the race for the second spot isn't too close. 


The Gigabyte GTX 1660 OC 6G could have been more overclockable and only somewhat flashier in the plan for our preferences. Yet, what it needs in pizazz, it more than compensates for in dependable 1080p gaming execution on a financial plan.
