MSI GTX 1660 6GB Gaming X Graphics Card Review

This last few months, Nvidia has been spoiling us with a wide range of new GPUs. Sure, some are too damn expensive, and others are a replacement for an older model or two. However, as they move on to new fabs, their older cards are being taken out of production. Why? The new 12nm tech is more efficient, clocks higher, runs cooler, and much more. Plus with the 16xx series offering competitive options without breaking the bank for low to mid range gaming needs, they’re a welcome Ying to the expensive Yang of the RTX cards.

Gaming X

The Gaming X series from MSI is one of their flagship models. Of course, the GTX 1660 isn’t the most powerful card in the world on paper. However, the Gaming X cooler should allow for much bigger performance from this modest chipset. Sure, it’ll come at a small premium over other 1660 cards, but is it worth the extra bump? Let’s find out!
