MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X & VENTUS XS Review

Overclocking

 

MSI provides some pretty decent out of the box boost GPU clocks on the faster GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X graphics card, with 1875MHz boost GPU easily achieved without touching MSI Afterburner. However, cranking things up was a fun experience as my sample was able to get to over 2000MHz (just) with a max of around 2010MHz or so.

This resulted in 8-10% more performance in synthetic and game benchmarks, without using more power. The card ran 2C hotter at 67C total, so I played with the fan speeds to see if I could get the GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X running cooler, while overclocked. With the fans at auto the GPU was hitting 67C, fans at 75% the card hit 59C and at 100% fan speed I saw the temps drop to 56C.

 

 

It might not sound like much, but this results in a few more precious FPS in your favorite games. For example, the overclocked MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X pushes up to 77FPS (from 75FPS) in Far Cry New Dawn at 1440p. In Rainbow Six Siege we're looking at 95FPS at 1440p versus 90FPS, and 121FPS at 1080p versus 113FPS at stock clocks.
