NVIDIA has been on a GeForce graphics card release spree, where this year we've already been introduced to the GeForce RTX 2060 and then weeks later the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti was released. Fast forward another few weeks and we have the GeForce GTX 1660, which is a cut down version of the GTX 1660 Ti and has some interesting changes to get its price point down to sub $250.

MSI GeForce GTX 1660 GAMING X & VENTUS XS Review 1028 |

I normally have day one reviews of major graphics card releases but my sample turned up at around 4PM my time and the review was due a few hours after that. Today is a new day, filled with writing and benchmarking the MSI GeForce GTX 1660 in both GAMING X and VENTUS XS variants, in a few different resolutions.

The main competitor to the GeForce GTX 1660 will be the GTX 960 and those looking for an upgrade but can't quite afford the more expensive GeForce RTX 2060, as well as the Radeon RX 570/580/590 graphics cards from AMD.

Pricing & Availability

MSI sells its new GeForce GTX 1660 GAMING X for $249 on Amazon while the GTX 1660 VENTUS XS costs $229, both are available now.
