ASUS DUAL GTX 1660 SUPER EVO OC Crushes the Red Devil RX 590 in 46 Games
The GTX 1660 SUPER is the eighth GeForce GPU based on NVIDIA’s Turing architecture. Just as with the GTX 1660 Ti, there is no Founders Edition so it is represented in this review by the factory overclocked ASUS DUAL GTX 1660 SUPER EVO OC which launches for sale today at $229.99.

The three Turing 1660s are successors to the Pascal GTX 1060 and they are not equipped with RT nor Tensor cores which allows the GTX 1660 SUPER to launch starting at $229. The GTX 1660 SUPER is currently aimed at the RX 590 which can now be found below $200 with a single game bundle although most overclocked models are priced higher. The Red Devil RX 590 is a premium overclocked card that launched just under a year ago and is currently out of stock at Amazon and Newegg except for open box models priced just below $220, so this is still a fair comparison.

ASUS GeForce GTX 1660 Super Phoenix Review
The ASUS GeForce GTX 1660 Super is priced at just $230, matching NVIDIA MSRP pricing. Physically the card is very compact, measuring just 17.5 x 12 cm, which ensures it will fit into all cases. Unfortunately the small size limits what the cooler can do in terms of heat and noise.

Buffalo LinkStation SOHO 4TB NAS Review
The LinkStation lineup is Buffalo's budget friendly turn-key platform for creative professionals and prosumers offering a centralized data platform for sharing across the home or office and multiple devices. Their latest solution is the LinkStation SOHO and today we have it in house. Starting from the top, the LinkStation SOHO shares the same form factor and enclosure with the 200 series. Going further, hardware between platforms has seemingly stayed the same well with the new SOHO using a dual-issue ARM @ 800MHz and 256MB of DDR3.For connectivity we have a single gigabit ethernet port, USB 2.0 and SATAII internally to the backplane. Drives are included with this platform and are dependent on model, Buffalo offers a 4TB and 8TB option.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Review
Few games over the last several years have arrived with as much anticipation as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. A re-invention. Bringing a franchise back to its roots. What Call of Duty should have been all along. The nail in Battlefields coffin. These are big claims, but with a new engine, complete campaign with fan-favorite characters, and re-imagined multiplayer, could the hype be real?

Close to the Sun Xbox One Review
You might think of Bioshock, but luckily, this game moves beyond that shadow.

When you open up Close to the Sun, the first thing that comes to mind is Bioshock. Beyond just the font, which is the same, the plot is similar. You have to take a boat to the middle of the ocean to board a mysterious scientific vessel that's become a home for the best the world has to offer. You're then thrust into a mystery where you're surprisingly involved and have to overcome experiments gone wrong and the hubris of man to make it out alive. Yeah, definitely familiar.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Super Gaming OC Review
Faster than GTX 1660, if memory serves. Renewed competition in the GPU marketplace has resulted in key players jostling for position with new models that pad out the respective product lines, leaving no price point left uncontested. This is the key contributor to Nvidia's burgeoning portfolio of Turing-based GeForce graphics cards, that now come firstly in either RTX or GTX flavours, each of which is then broken down into regular, Super or Ti variants.

Proving that there's still plenty of mileage left in the current-generation tank, today's release sees the GeForce GTX 1660 Super squeeze into the gap that exists between the GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1660 cards launched back in Q1 this year.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Super Gaming Pro OC Review
Gigabyte designed an upscale-looking GeForce GTX 1660 Super, using a heavy heatsink, and triple fans with idle fan-stop to boot. It also comes with the largest factory-overclock and largest power limit increase of all the GTX 1660 Super cards we've tested today.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER OC Review
In July of this year, NVIDIA announced and launched its “SUPER” refresh of the GeForce RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080. We’ve evaluated the Founders Edition RTX 2070 SUPER and 2060 SUPER at launch, as well as the Founders Edition RTX 2080 SUPER later that month. We have also reviewed a retail ASUS RTX 2070 SUPER and a retail MSI RTX 2080 SUPER.

Well, NVIDIA isn’t done refreshing its lineup, now it’s time for the current generation GeForce GTX series to get the SUPER refresh. Some of these video cards aren’t even that old, only being released earlier this year. It’s like that famous Oprah car giveaway meme, “You get a SUPER refresh!” and “You get a SUPER refresh!” and “You get a SUPER refresh!” In this instance, all GeForce series GPUs get the SUPER treatment!

iBUYPOWER Snowblind Element Review
Back in 2017 at CES iBUYPOWER teased a concept that they had been working with, a PC case with a monitor built into the side panel. Now that idea itself isn’t completely new, there have been modders who have done it. But what they did was just have the LCD panel and nothing else, leaving a transparent side panel that you can still see everything inside with everything on the display floating and showing up almost like magic. This is well and good for a concept, but producing and selling what is basically a very complicated case mod is a whole different story and frankly I didn’t think they would do it. When last year at CES 2018 they actually introduced their Snowblind series of builds which included this feature I was surprised and impressed and it had me considering trying to do the same thing myself with a build. Buying a full build from them for the feature didn’t really make sense given my experience with PCs. Well at the start of this month they made that a lot easier with the introduction of their first individually sold case, the Snowblind. Well today I finally get to check it out in person. I’ve been collecting white components to go inside the build and today I’m going to check out iBUYPOWERs first case and check out its side panel window LCD as well!

Inno3D GTX 1660 SUPER Twin X2 Review
The GTX 1660 SUPER is a go between for the GTX 1660 and the GTX 1660 Ti. On paper this new graphics card could almost be an identical model, bearing the same TU116 GPU, Cuda Core count, GPU clock speeds and other characteristics. The significant adjustment has been made to the memory architecture which now utilises GDDR6, allowing for a substantial performance increase.

Massdrop X Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Headphones Review
Drop has gained a lot of attention over the last few years for delivering enthusiast-grade products at budget-friendly prices. This is especially true in the realm of headphones where heavy-hitters like the AKG K7XX and Sennheiser HD 6XX are still making “best value” lists years after their release.

Today, we’re looking at the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee. Based on the classic HD 580s, these headphones offer improved drivers, lower impedance to work with smartphones and PCs, and a new lower price of $160. Should this be your next set of cans? Join us as we explore further.

Moons of Madness Review
There’s been no shortage of digital Lovecraft adaptations lately, although you could argue it’s been a case of creepy quantity over quality. Don’t get me wrong, recent games like Call of Cthulhu and The Sinking City have their dark charms and chilling moments, but they ultimately fall maddeningly short of true greatness. Enter Moons of Madness, our latest weird-horror-infused adventure, which brings the tentacles, tortured minds, and twisted realities to the surface of Mars.

A mashup of Lovecraft and The Martian is certainly an intriguing concept, but is Moons of Madness the truly-gripping trip fans have been waiting for? Or is the game as lifeless as the red planet itself? Strap yourself in, it’s time to put this one to the test…

MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Super Gaming X Review
The MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Super Gaming X comes with a large dual-fan cooler that makes it the quietest GTX 1660 Super that we've reviewed today, it also comes with the highly-popular idle-fan stop feature. Temperatures are good, too, and a backplate is included as well.

MSI GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GAMING X Review
MSI released their GTX 1660 SUPER GAMING X, a product with a more than capable cooler as well being factory tweaked. The SUPER edition card comes with faster GDDR6 memory but remains pretty much to be a GTX 1660 Ti in its bare essence.

MSI GTX 1660 SUPER Gaming X Review
The Nvidia GTX 1660 SUPER cards are here at last, and few come as high-end as the MSI Gaming X model. It may be a more affordable card, but even then there is still room for more affordable and more premium models. With the award-winning Twin Frozr 7 cooler, this card should be able to run harder, faster, and cooler than many of its rivals. We certainly intend to find out if that is the case.

Earlier this year, we put the MSI GTX 1660 Gaming X thought its paces, and it was a very competitive and affordable graphics card. However, now the SUPER version is here! It’s basically the same chipset, honestly, no changes there. However, rather than GDDR5 it now features the much faster GDDR6 memory, which should give it a nice performance boost, especially at higher resolutions. So faster memory and a bigger cooler, will that be enough to make this the new king of budget gaming cards? We certainly hope so.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB GDDR6 Graphics Card Review
NVIDIA introduced their Turing GPU architecture last year, making a complete departure from traditional GPU designs and creating a hybrid architecture that would include a range of new technologies to power the next-generation immersive gaming experiences.

While initially announced with Quadro lineup under the new Quadro RTX brand, we all knew that the Turing architecture was coming to the GeForce lineup. It arrived in the GeForce lineup a few months later under the new GeForce RTX branding. NVIDIA's first big naming departure for two decades of GeForce GTX.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER Review
When the original “SUPER” cards were introduced earlier this year NVIDIA was offering new configurations of existing silicon, with additional SMs – and thus more CUDA Cores – enabled, among other differences. This GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER launch is different, as it retains the identical configuration of a TU116 GPU found in the original (i.e. non-SUPER) version. This new GPU even runs at the same Base/Boost clocks as its predecessor!

So what makes this GTX 1660 SUPER, well, super? NVIDIA has upped the memory from 8 Gbps to 14 Gbps, which results in a jump from 192.1 GB/s to 336 GB/s available memory bandwidth on the same 192-bit bus. The big question then becomes, how memory bandwidth-constrained was the GTX 1660 to begin with? And can this new card come close to a GTX 1660 Ti? The gaming benchmarks to follow will answer that, and since we aren’t looking at any architectural or other significant changes let’s skip ahead to the important stuff: performance. (But first a quick look at specs.)

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super Review, Feat. EVGA SC Ultra: Recalibrating The Mainstream Market
Kicking off the first of a series of video card launches for this holiday season is NVIDIA, who is announcing their GeForce GTX 1660 Super. This is a relatively minor, but none the less interesting revision to the GTX 1660 family that adds a 1660 (vanilla) SKU with faster GDDR6 memory for improved performance. Along with the GeForce GTX 1650 Super (shipping in late November), these two cards are going to be the backbone of NVIDIA’s mainstream efforts to close out the year. And while NVIDIA’s other GTX 1660 cards aren’t going anywhere, as we’re going to see today, with its $229 price tag, the GDDR6-equipped GTX 1660 Super is pretty much going to make the other 1660 cards redundant.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super Review: Turbo Charged 1080p Gaming
NVIDIA is expanding its GeForce GTX family of graphics cards today, with a pair of new Turing-based GPUs. As their branding suggests, the new GeForce GTX 1660 Super and GeForce GTX 1650 Super sit above their “non-Super” branded counterparts in NVIDIA’s line-up, but a notch below GeForce GTX Ti variants. It is only the GeForce GTX 1660 Super that is arriving on store shelves today, however. The GeForce GTX 1650 Super will be arriving at little later in November. NVIDIA is introducing some new driver and GeForce Experience-related features today too...

Palit GeForce GTX 1660 Super GamingPro OC Review
Palit's GeForce GTX 1660 Super GamingPro OC is just $5 more expensive than the NVIDIA MSRP, yet offers a dual fan cooler that delivers good temperatures. For the small price increase you even get a backplate, something that other cards in this price range can't achieve.

Palit GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GamingPRO OC Review
We check out the Palit GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GamingPRO OC, a product with a dual-slot cooler as well being factory tweaked, hence that OC in its name. The SUPER edition card comes with faster GDDR6 memory but remains to be a GTX 1660 Ti with slightly less shader processors.

Palit GTX 1660 SUPER Gaming Pro OC Review
The new Nvidia GTX 1660 Super cards are here. Well, I say “Nvidia” but there isn’t a founder edition or similar for this launch. These cards are coming purely from their partner brands, such as Palit! We actually reviewed the Palit GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and the GTX 1650 earlier this year, but we didn’t get their GTX 1660. However, I’m eager to see where the new GTX 1660 Super fits between those two cards regardless, as well as against the other GTX 1660 Super cards we’re testing today. With the new design, you’ll find the same card you know and love, but with the much improved GDDR6 memory replacing the older GDDR5. Will that be enough to make the SUPER stand out from the crowd?

Palit GTX 1660 SUPER GamingPro OC Review
We review Palit's 1660 SUPER offering, the GamingPro OC. As has become the norm, we knew pretty much everything there was to know about GTX 1660 SUPER thanks to a myriad of leaks. That said, the graphics card has been officially announced today and we have two reviews for launch day, with this article focused on Palit’s 1660 SUPER GamingPro OC model. It’s a dual-fan, factory overclocked model, but how does it stack up against the competition?

Razer Viper Ultimate Review
I make no secret of my affinity for Razer's gaming mice. I've been a long time user of the legendary DeathAdder Elite, which I thought I would never replace. That is, until the Viper came along and changed everything.

But how do you top greatness? How about greatness, but wireless? That's where we're at now, and while the Viper Ultimate is more than simply chopping the cable off a Viper and calling it a day, everything that earned the original our highest recommendation is within.

Zotac GTX 1660 SUPER TwinFan Review
The SUPERs are coming, that seems to be the theme for 2019! Nvidia may have already released an impressive range of graphics cards this year. However, they’ve been pretty swift to follow them up with SUPER variants that are even faster! Now, we already loved the Zotac GTX 1660 Twin Fan (non-super) when it launched about 8 months ago. While basically none of the GPU core its self has changed, we do see this card move from GDDR5 to GDDR6 memory over the same 192-bit memory bus. Most of the new SUPER cards will also come with an improved factory overclock too.
