ASUS Phoenix GTX 1660Ti Review

Test Setup

We're back to sorting our graphs by 1080P for today's reviews, given that the GTX 1660Ti is designed around this most popular resolution rather than something which is going to chuck out ultra smooth 4K gaming.

ASUS Phoenix GTX 1660Ti
Intel i7 6850K
ASUS X99 Strix
Corsair ROG Dominator Platinum 3200
Corsair RM1000i
Corsair LX 512GB OS
Corsair LS 480GB x2 Raid0 Games
Corsair H100i V2
Windows 10

Clock Speeds

The Phoenix arrived too close to the launch date for us to be able to spend any time overclocking the card. However, we have said for ages that the automatic overclocking available from Nvidias GPU Boost technology does a fine job and so it proves on the Phoenix, with more overclocking prowess than you might imagine given its low price and tiny cooler. Okay it's not jaw-dropping, but it's not disgraced either.

Just watching the YT video now, it's great you managed to get the "normal" model too Tom, it always piffs me abit when companies send only their latest & greatest with budget orientated models rather than the ones people would realistically buy (Especially this far down the stack since most would step up a tier to £329 2060's rather than pay 25% extra on the slower model for better cooling)

Edit: I have a feeling the missing chips in M1 & M2 are for the GTX1650 versions with 128-bit busses(4 or 8 chips usable rather than the 3 or 6 of these 192-bit models)Quote

Exactly. We are very happy that we got the low-cost model this time. TBH, this is where the 1660 Ti makes the most sense.

The NV RTX 2060 Founders is £329 when it is in stock on Nvidia.com, so the high-end GTX 1660 Ti models don't make that much sense if you are looking for peak price/perf.Quote

It's half a Strix.

Looking at performance it's quite clear this is a pointless release. All they needed to do was drop the 2060 to £300.Quote

Yes Tom! Just all the Yes!! A budget GPU at long last, still a little confused as to where or what it's supposed to be or where it's meant to fit in the line up the "1660Ti" monika is also confusing..

I'd have gone with GTX 1160.Quote

back when Nvidia regularly had blower style fans they were generally reviewed as quiet and superior to AMD cards as they exhausted heat out of the case.... yet now the old style blower fans are regarded as noisy and it is better the heat is kept in the case!??!?!Quote
