MSI GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X Unboxing Appears on YouTube

PC World Bulgaria has uploaded a video which showcases MSI's upcoming GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X graphics card, giving us a comprehensive look around the graphics card, its display output configuration and its power design. 

Looking at the card directly, we can clearly see that this new MSI graphics card is a Geforce GTX series part, lacking any RTX branding, confirming Nvidia's move away from the RTX brand name in their lower-end products. On the box, we can also see that RTX features such as ray tracing and DLSS are excluded, instead referencing Turing Shaders, backing up the rumours that the GTX 1660 Ti will lack both RT cores and Tensor cores. 

On the GPU's boxart, we can also see that MSI's Geforce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X features plenty of RGB lighting locations and utilises an 8-pin PCIe cable for power. The major difference between this cooler and its RTX 2060 counterpart is the lack of Geforce RTX branding on the side of the cooler, which instead says Geforce GTX. The Twin Frozr 7 cooler design appears to be the same as MSI's RTX 2060 Gaming X model. 

On the topic of display outputs, MSI's GTX 1660 Ti offers three DisplayPort 1.4 connections and a single HDMI 2.0b connection. This GPU lacks support for VirtualLink and DVI-D.

Just going to say it now: This card makes zero sense to me. If I was going to spend the money on this card with no RTX components to it, why wouldn't I just spend a little bit more and get the RTX 2060.

According to online the 1660ti price is suggested at $280...well a RTX 2060 is only $350

A $70 difference is worth it in my mind simply to get the RTX features. Sure nothing really is out there that works with it yet aside from a BF5/Metro Exodus, and to my eyes I don't see a difference that is like "holy crap so much better" but....the difference in price just doesn't make any sense to me.

The 1660ti (I...I do not like that name at all, it sounds stupid) I just don't see selling that well. Just my two cents :PQuote

It's not though, it's a new architecture and if leaks are to be believed, significantly faster.

Though I do hope that Navi delivers later this year, lack of competition leads to price hikes...Quote

It's a lot more than a 1060. The cuda core bump is significant and Turing's changes alone can make a big difference in a lot of games.

Just look at our Forza Horizons 4 performance analysis and you will see that Turing can stomp over Pascal in some games. Other examples include Wolfenstein 2 The new Colossus.

As always, bench for waitmarks. Or something like that.Quote

But you guys realise that it's a GTX 1070 for the price of a GTX 1070, or, at least what a GTX 1070 should be on sale right now?

You can still find some 1070s under 300$ right now.

So we're getting a 1070 for the price of a 1070, wowee!

I really hope AMD has an answer with Navi because this is getting infuriating. As a Canadian, being asked $400+ dollhairs for a Mid range card is straight up extortion.Quote
