Palit's GeForce GTX 1660 StormX is a minimalist and compact graphics card designed to get you on the road to Full HD e-Sports. The Palit GTX 1660 StormX launches at NVIDIA's baseline price of $220, includes a factory-overclock, and is out to change the sub-$250 segment.

Thanks W1zzard.

The GTX 1660 looks to be a winner and the Palit version is one of the best choices with low temps while overclocking well in a small package.

Overclocking on the 1660 looks to be some if the best we have seen in a while. Getting 2000 gb/s on the gddr5 makes performance very 1660ti-like.

Nvidia had officially taken over the mid range.

Impressive performance from such a small card, low power, and the overclock performance of 15% is impressive

Overclocked slightly beating a GTX 1060 Ti and GTX 1070 while consuming half the power of an RX 590 is a definite win for $220.

Yeah great little card, packs a lot of performance in such a small package. As noted impressive overclocking results too, much like other 1660 models.

Should be popular cards for sure.

Was it already OC card or was it just gtx 1660 with 1785 MHz Boost. Cause in your benchmarks it says OC, but in the name of review it doesnt. And is there any difference between those?
