So let’s take a look at the different models of GTX 1660 Ti that GIGABYTE offers.
GIGABYTE AORUS GTX 1660 Ti 6G
The AORUS Edition is GIGABYTE’s top-of-the-line gaming series. So anything that has the AORUS badge is their top tier offering.
So even though the GTX 1660 series may well be considered a mid-tier graphics card, GIGABYTE didn’t hold back with having an AORUS edition.
The AORUS GTX 1660 Ti will use the WINDFORCE 3X cooling system with alternate spinning fans.
It will have a metal backplate with RGB illumination. The RGB can be controlled using the RGB Fusion 2.0 software for RGB synchronization with other AORUS devices.
It has a 6+2 power phase for overclocking headroom and will have a core clock of 1,890 Mhz. The Nvidia reference card has a core clock of 1,770 Mhz only.
So that’s a decent overclock out-of-the-box.
GIGABYTE GTX 1660 Ti Gaming OC 6G
Next on the line is the GAMING OC edition of the GTX 1660 Ti.
This variant is a slight step-down to the AORUS edition. It will utilize the same WINDFORCE 3X cooling system with alternate spinning fans.
But as for the back plate it will not be a metal back plate rather just a plastic back plate.
RGB software will still be the RGB Fusion 2 but the design are simple.
Core clock has been toned down a bit as compared to the AORUS edition. The core clock of the GAMING OC edition will be 1,860 Mhz.
