Detailed Look: MSI GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X
The front of the MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X box, nothing out of the ordinary here.
On the back of the box we can see MSI tells consumers the GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X features their TWIN FROZR 7 cooling technology, RGB Mystic Light tech, and 'blazing performance' which they're really not lying about here.
Out of the box it looks pretty much identical to any other mid-range TWIN FROZR 7-cooled RTX/GTX graphics card from MSI.
I love the backplate on MSI's custom cards, they just look so good.
All you'll need is a single 8-pin PCIe power connector for MSI's new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X graphics card.
Display connectivity remains mostly unchanged, with 3 x DP and 1 x HDMI.
Detailed Look: MSI GTX 1660 Ti VENTUS XS
MSI changes it up a bit for the VENTUS XS box, with our sample arriving as the OC Edition with slightly higher than normal reference/boost GPU clocks.
There's no TWIN FROZR 7 cooling here folks, but that doesn't matter - something you'll see in our thermal thoughts on the card later on in the review.
Seriously, I really dig what MSI has here with the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti VENTUS XS... so much so that I kinda like the look and style, and size of the card over the GAMING X variant.
You do get a cheaper looking backplate, but I don't think you're going to care for $279.
The same single 8-pin PCIe power connector is all you need to get the MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti VENTUS XS up and running.
The same display connectivity as its GAMING X cousin, we have 3 x DP and 1 x HDMI output on the GTX 1660 Ti VENTUS XS.
