MSI GeForce GTX 1660 GAMING X
The new MSI GeForce GTX 1660 GAMING X looks no different to the higher-end GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X, with it featuring the same TWIN FROZR 7 cooler and RGB lighting.
The packaging for the MSI GeForce GTX 1660 GAMING X, on point as always, MSI.
The front of the card with the TWIN FROZR 7 cooler looking great.
I love, love, love the backplate on MSI's current flock of custom GAMING X graphics cards.
We have 3 x DP 1.4 connectors and 1 x HDMI 2.0 connector for I/O.
A single 8-pin PCIe power connector is all that's needed to power the MSI GeForce GTX 1660 GAMING X.
MSI GeForce GTX 1660 VENTUS XS
The second MSI GeForce GTX 1660 we have here today is the VENTUS XS.
Here we have the box for the card, with a little less flashy-styling as the GAMING X packaging.
As I said in my review of MSI's custom GTX 1660 Ti graphics cards, I really dig the petiteness of the VENTUS XS cards.
There's a backplate on the MSI GeForce GTX 1660 VENTUS XS, but it's not as nice looking as the GAMING X card. Still, it's not like you sit there and stare at it, either... right?
We have the same 3 x DP 1.4 and 1 x HDMI 2.0 output connectivity here.
There's also the same single 8-pin PCIe power connector required on the GTX 1660 VENTUS XS.
