How well can the GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 6GB run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 6GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 6GB is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2022 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 6GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 753.

The GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 6GB graphics card is returning a strong performance on FIFA 22 at 1080p of 93 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict will get playable frame rates of 35 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Forza Horizon 5, which was getting 40 FPS under tests.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 6GB ran FIFA 22 to a good performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 187 FPS, Medium: 148 FPS, High: 99 FPS and Ultra: 71 FPS. Another game researched was Grand Theft Auto VI with predictions of L: 69FPS, M: 55FPS, H: 37FPS, U: 26FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Forza Horizon 5, which returned L: 80FPS, M: 63FPS, H: 42FPS, U: 30FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 6GB is a reliable performer at this larger resolution for modern games. The graphics card will be good to run 1440p on Ultra or High settings.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 6GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 6GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for around 2 years

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 6GB? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, which has 42% better performance and can run 971 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 35% better and can run 960 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 6GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce GTX 1660 KFA2 Blower 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 KFA2 Blower 6GB is a dual-slot graphics card with a single-fan blower cooling solution. This graphics card has poor 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 1785 MHz with the Boost Clock, the same as 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 120W, 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 KFA2 Blower 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.
