MSI send out details about its new GeForce GTX 1660 lineup. Various models here, including a compact AERO ITX version.
GeForce® GTX 1660 GAMING X 6G
After winning numerous awards on the MSI RTX 20 series, the 7th generation of the iconic TWIN FROZR thermal design is tailored to cool the MSI GeForce® GTX 1660 GAMING series as well. Featuring two of MSI’s patented TORX 3.0 fans, the unique fan design combines the advantages of two differently shaped fan blades to generate huge amounts of airflow. The new trims on the traditional fan blades create concentrated airflow for higher air pressure while also reducing noise. The customized heatsink is designed for efficient heat dissipation to keep the temperature low and performance high. An aggressive gunmetal grey & black look emphasizes the glorious glow of Mystic Light RGB infused into the card. Using the updated & improved MSI Mystic Light software, controlling and syncing your LED-lit components is easier than ever.
GeForce® GTX 1660 ARMOR 6G OC
The MSI GeForce® GTX 1660 ARMOR 6G OC builds on the reputation for solid performance with a dual-fan thermal design. Taking the concept to a whole new level, the new ARMOR design adds a bit of heavy metal flair into the mix. The ARMOR 2X thermal design uses the lauded TORX 2.0 fans, providing more concentrated airflow and air pressure for enhanced cooling performance. The direct contact heatpipes transfer heat from the GPU quickly and efficiently. MSI's Zero Frozr technology stops the fans in low-load situations such as web browsing or light gaming to remain fully silent.
GeForce® GTX 1660 VENTUS XS 6G OC
Dressed in a fashionable Black & Silver design with industrial style shapes, the MSI GeForce® GTX 1660 VENTUS XS 6G OC is a smaller version of the popular VENTUS design. The new dual-fan thermal design also employs TORX 2.0 fans, providing more concentrated airflow and air pressure for enhanced cooling performance. Using a direct contact design, the heatsink transfers heat from the GPU quickly and efficiently. A classy brushed backplate provides the finishing touch for this card.
GeForce® GTX 1660 AERO ITX 6G OC
Measuring in at max 178mm length, the GTX 1660 AERO ITX models are small in size, but just as big in performance as their bigger brothers. Matching perfectly with the new Z390I GAMING EDGE AC motherboard, this makes them ideal for small form factor gaming systems and HTPC’s. The AERO ITX model utilizes a single high-performance fan on a compact heatsink featuring efficient heatpipes and optimized dissipation. All of this is covered by a very classy looking black and white shroud with some carbon details. Even in a small form factor, staying as silent as possible is important.
