MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X & VENTUS XS Review

Thermals

 

MSI never fails to impress when it comes to thermal performance on their TWIN FROZR 7 cooled graphics cards, and the new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X is no exception. Under full complete load at any resolution for 30-60 minutes I recorded temperatures of 65C, with all settings on auto. I didn't touch fan curves, fan speeds, overclocking, or anything else and still only hit 65C maximum.

Power

 

Another benefit is the 120W TDP that the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti rolls out with, which saw our full Core i7-8700K test bed consuming a total of 220-230W under load. I was running gaming and synthetic benchmarks under this test, ranging between the aforementioned 220-230W in tests like Heaven, and games like Apex Legends and Metro Exodus.

Noise

 

With the fans on auto I couldn't hear the card making much noise at all under gaming loads, and when under 60C the fans will disable completely for absolute silent use.
