GIGABYTE GTX 1660 OC 6G – Review and Benchmarks!

by birtanpublished on August 25, 2020

What's up everyone its mark from silence Tech after a long drought of graphics cards since 2017 especially in the budget price bracket and video have released two new card strips of any r-tx features the 1660 and 1660 TI today I'll be checking out gigabytes version of the

1660 the OC 6g priced around 219 US dollars and 200 UK pounds judging a lot of the others announced this gigabyte version might be the one to pick over the rest since it has dual wind forced fans a large heat sink and a forty five

Megahertz overclock straight out of the box this card has landed right in between the previously mentioned 16 60 TI and rx 580 is going to be a very popular choice for 1080p gamers while the card uses the same 12 nano meter as

A 16 60 TI the CUDA cores have been dropped to 1408 the overall die on both the ti and non TI is noticeably smaller as well compared to the 2016-2017 due to the lack of RT cause this particular gigabyte 1660 comes with an additional

88 texture units 0/10 of course or RT cores as ray-tracing wouldn't of made sense on a card with this performance base Clark is 1530 megahertz and boost goes all the way up to 1830 and we'll see how far this card

Can overclock a little later on video memory there's only 6 gigabytes of gddr5 operating at 8 gigabits per second the same as a GTX 1060 and lastly this card uses around 120 watts of power and the recommended power supply for discard is

450 watts for power the card requires a single 8 pin and comes with a surprising amount of pores 3 DisplayPort 1.4 and one single HDMI 2.0 B and you'll be able to hook up multiple monitors no problem at all

That support g-sync or otherwise dimensions this card is pretty small making it perfect for a mini ITX build or a home theater PC it's 225 millimeters in length 122 millimeters in width

And 40 millimeters in height making it take up two and a half PCIe slots in a case and it will certainly look a little dwarfed in a large mid-tower and it's a shame there's absolutely no LED backlighting on the card whatsoever for

Overclocking I was very impressed with this card I managed to add an additional plus 70 to the core totally in 2025 and an extra 900 megahertz to the memory temperatures the card hits an average of 76 degrees Celsius but at points it went

Into the 80s so you'll need decent cooling to keep the cars temperatures at acceptable levels their overall noise levels while gaming are more than acceptable my sample had no coil whine at idle or under full load while the

Card actually completely turns off at idle and here's a noise test of the card at idle and under full load moving on to the benchmarks let's see how well the 1660 performs against cards like the 1060 or even the 1070 then

Afterwards we will compare pricing to see or give a general idea if the 1660 is worth picking up

Well judging on those benchmarks the 1660 is an absolute beast when in some games is not too far behind a GTX 1017 I have noticed on Amazon that prices for the gtx 1070 are getting slashed right now although that's probably more to do

With the 1660 TI but whichever one you decide expect 60 FPS 1080p gaming on every game out right now the 1660 of course will be the card you will have to make the most sacrifices in in-game settings but make no mistake about it is

A very capable card and smashes any gtx 1060 in every game really hope you've enjoyed this review everyone there's a little short I know but I believe I've covered all the key points of the 1660 and I've also got a stinking cold and a

Block nose it just will not go away at the moment so hopefully I'll be better next week and that video will be about this 6 ATX case the build that I've done going through some benchmarks what I like about the case and why I chose

Those parse anyway if you have any questions about the 1660 in this video please leave a question in the comment section and also remember to leave a like and if you haven't already to subscribe a massive shouts out to Nvidia
