The new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6G video card from MSI comes with the brand's Twin Frozr 7 thermal design that provides a semi-passive, dual-fan cooling solution for a noise-free environment in low-load situations. With a boost clock speed of 1,875 MHz, the Gaming X 6G also features customizable RGB LED lighting.

Those who were expecting for MSI to launch the Gaming X variant of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti video card will be pleased to find out that their wait has finally come to an end. MSI has just unleashed the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6G video card for desktop PCs and many online and offline retailers already have it in stock.

Although the MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6G comes with customizable RGB lighting and looks great even without turning those lights on, video cards are always about the specs, so take a look below for the highlights:

  • Cores/Core boost clock: 1536; 1,875 MHz
  • Memory/Memory bus/Memory speed: 6 GB GDDR6; 192-bit; 12 Gbps
  • HDCP version supported: 2.2
  • Output: 3 x DisplayPort 1.4; 1 x HDMI 2.0b
  • Power connectors/Power consumption: 1 x 8-pin; 130 W
  • DirectX/OpenGL API support: 12; 4.5
  • Maximum displays/Maximum resolution: 4; 7,680 x 4,320 pixels

In addition to the above, the VR Ready MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6G also features Afterburner OC and G-Sync support. Thanks to the Zero Frozr technology, the card's two fans come to a full stop in low-load situations, keeping a noise-free environment when its user is taking a well-deserved break from gaming.

The MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6G can be acquired in the US from Amazon for US$309.99, but many other online and offline retailers should also have it ready for shipping this week.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
