ASUS STRIX GTX 1660 Ti
It seems it has been a busy few weeks with GPU launches. We’ve seen dozens hit the market, with every brand releasing new GTX 1660 and GTX 1660 Ti cards. However, one of the most anticipated models has to be the ASUS STRIX. Sure, it’ll be a little more expensive, but the big cooler combined with big factory overclocks usually helps justify the cost.
As with any STRIX card, we’ve got the latest version of their award-winning cooler design. Given how efficient the GTX 1660 Ti chipset is, it should have zero trouble cooling this graphics card. Furthermore, we expect that it’ll overclock really well too, despite already having a clock boost from the factory.
There are a few other party tricks throw in too, such as fan headers on the card to hook up chassis fans. There’s their latest GPU Tweak II overclocking software, and the improved Axial-Tech fans! Enough spec, lets move on and get this on the bench!
- The GeForce® GTX 1660 Ti is built with the breakthrough graphics performance of the award-winning NVIDIA Turing™ architecture. With performance that rivals the GeForce GTX 1070, it’s a blazing-fast supercharger for today’s most popular games.
