In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Armor 6GB are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB.

The GTX 1660 has a 30 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1660 Ti, but the GTX 1660 Ti has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1660. As a result, the GTX 1660 Ti exhibits a 9.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1660. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1660 has a 30 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1660 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1660 providing 1.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1660 was released less than a year after the GTX 1660 Ti, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Armor 6GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 1660 Ti has 95.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1660, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1660 Ti is massively better than the GTX 1660.

The GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Armor 6GB has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1660 is 2619 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1660 Ti is 2765. The GTX 1660 Ti having 146 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1660 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1660.

The GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB requires 130 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Armor 6GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 1660 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 1660 Ti. The GTX 1660 requires 10 Watts more than the GTX 1660 Ti to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 1660 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 1660 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB is an entry to mid-level Nvidia graphics card which launched on March 14th, 2019. The GeForce GTX 1660 is designed to compete against AMD's more affordable gaming cards such as the RX 570 and the RX 580, and replaces the outgoing GTX 1060. The GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB is a dual-slot graphics card with a dual-fan Torx Fan 3.0 cooling solution, Zero Frozr, custom PCB and solid anti-bend backplate. This graphics card has above average overclocking potential.

Architecture
The Turing GPU architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Pascal Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Turing TU116, more specifically the TU166-300-A1, which has 22 SM activated and thus 1408 Shader Processing Units, 88 TMUs, and 48 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1530 MHz and goes up to 1860 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a 4% overclock versus the reference model.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5 through a 192-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 2001MHz, or 8GHz effective.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 130W, this graphics card requires one 8-pin power connector and a minimum of a 450W power supply.

Performance
The GeForce GTX 1660 will enable medium to high graphics performance on modern AAA 2018 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 50+ FPS on High graphics settings at 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 1060.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440, so our recommendation would be to use 1920x1080 in order to get the most out of your settings. We recommend a high-end processor such as the i5-8500 and 12GB of RAM for optimal performance.
Overview GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Armor 6GB is a mid-range GeForce 16 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance 1080p graphics card based on the Turing architecture. This is a dual-slot graphics card with dual 100mm Torx 2.0 fan cooling, Zero Frozr fan noise eliminator, anti-bend backplate, and a custom PCB. This video card has average overclocking potential. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. Unlike the RTX series, the GTX series does not support real-time ray-tracing. However, a lower quality version of DXR ray-tracing will be enabled in a future software update. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU116, more specifically the TU116-400-A1 variant, which has 1536 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and 24 SMs. The central unit runs at 1500 MHz and goes up to 1800 MHz in Boost mode, providing a small 2% overclock versus the reference model. Memory The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 12GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector. System Suggestions GeForce GTX 1660 Ti MSI Armor 6GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440, but is ideally suited for 1080p gaming. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
