EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 SC Ultra Gaming Graphics Card Review

Today we will be presenting the EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 SC Ultra Gaming Graphics Card. We can consider this to be a budget friendly card.  The specs indeed say so. I don’t mean that in a negative way either this is pretty much right there with the 1660 Ti in specs. Now the price of this card is what first intrigued me. Lets take a look at what we can get for around the same price range. Looks like I could get a RX 570, RX 580, 1050 Ti, and 1650. This card will easily out perform each one of those cards. This card has almost on par performance with a 1660 Ti and what great’s, it cost a little less. As far as comparable prices this iteration takes the cake.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 16-series graphics cards are powered by the all-new NVIDIA Turing architecture to give you incredible new levels of gaming realism, speed, power efficiency, and immersion. With the EVGA GeForce GTX 16-series gaming cards you get the best gaming experience with next generation graphics performance, ice cold cooling, and advanced overclocking features with the all new EVGA Precision x1 software.

Here’s a quick comparison between the GeForce GTX 16 series (default clock speeds)…
