14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Gaming X 6GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Gaming X 6GB where we look at the bigger games played in 2019. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 902 games in todays list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Gaming X 6GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Diablo 4 and predict it will deliver reasonable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 131 FPS, Medium: 103 FPS, High: 69 FPS and Ultra: 50 FPS. We proceeded to look at FIFA 20 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a strong 178 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Gaming X 6GB will run the upcoming game Diablo 4 to a playable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 100 FPS, Medium: 79 FPS, High: 53 FPS and Ultra: 38 FPS. Another game tested was FIFA 20, L: 306FPS, M: 255FPS, H: 187FPS, U: 136FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which returned L: 121FPS, M: 95FPS, H: 64FPS, U: 46FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Gaming X 6GB is a strong choice at these screen resolutions. With Ultra graphics settings being regularly reached at 1440p gaming its easy to consider bumping up the screen size to 4K for this graphics card.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Gaming X 6GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Gaming X 6GB in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Gaming X 6GB? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2060 Super 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 21% better and can meet 992 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 26% better and can run 992 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Gaming X 6GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Gaming X 6GB is a mid-range GeForce 16 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance 1080p graphics card based on the Turing architecture. This is a dual-slot graphics card with dual 100mm Torx 3.0 fan cooling, Zero Frozr fan noise eliminator, anti-bend backplate, and RGB Mystic Light support. This video card has good overclocking potential.


Architecture
The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. Unlike the RTX series, the GTX series does not support real-time ray-tracing. However, a lower quality version of DXR ray-tracing will be enabled in a future software update.


GPU
It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU116, more specifically TU116-400-A1, which has 1536 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and 24 SMs. The central unit runs at 1500 MHz and goes up to 1875 MHz in Boost mode, providing a 6% overclock versus the reference model.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 12GHz effective.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 130W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector.


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Gaming X 6GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440, but is ideally suited for 1080p gaming. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
