In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Ventus XS OC 6GB.

The GTX 1660 and the GTX 1660 have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. 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 and the GTX 1660 have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Ventus XS OC 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

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

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Ventus XS OC 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB are the same, which means the GTX 1660 and the GTX 1660 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Ventus XS OC 6GB and the GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB have 1408 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the two GPUs have extremely similar stats, so any gaming performance difference would most likely be negligible.

The GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Ventus XS OC 6GB requires 130 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Gaming X 6GB requires 130 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. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 1660 MSI Ventus XS OC 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 Ventus XS OC 6GB is a dual-slot graphics card with a dual-fan Torx Fan 2.0 cooling solution, Zero Frozr, custom PCB and solid anti-bend backplate. This graphics card has below 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 1830 MHz with the Boost Clock, providing a small 3% 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 Ventus XS OC 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.
