Description

Note: This product has been superseded by the ASUS Phoenix GTX 1660 Super graphics card

The Asus Phoenix GTX 1660 OC 6GB is one of the more compact TU116-based cards with a single fan. It’s built with Asus’ Auto-Xtreme Technology. According to the manufacturer, this means that every part is machine assembled using aerospace-grade Super Alloy Power II components. In other words, no error-prone human fingers have been involved. Other than that, it’s a fairly standard mid-range video card.

Phoenix GTX 1660 OC Overview

Another aspect of the manufacturing process – again according to Asus – is that overclocking capability is improved. Nevertheless, this card comes with a very mild overclock out of the box, measuring about 1% above stock clocks.

A less common and perhaps more interesting feature of this board is that it’s IP5X dust resistant. Again, this was made possible by the Auto-Xtreme manufacturing tech. The Phoenix GTX 1660 is sufficiently compact to stop dust from penetrating the outer shell. All other things being equal, this should ensure good ventilation and reduce the risks of overheating.

As mentioned, the Phoenix card is not only compactly build, but very compact on the whole. It’s a short single-fan card that will fit in most small form factor mITX builds. In terms of design, this card is not much to look at. There are no LEDs and the design is a non-descript black with a white stripe.

The display outputs on the Phoenix GTX 1660 OC include 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort, and 1x HDMI. A single 8-pin PCIe power connector is required.

Performance and Features

There’s no reference design of the GTX 1660, but most manufacturers have used their own standard designs. So, the cooling solutions and feature sets look fairly similar to other GPUs from the same manufacturer, respectively. Asus’ Phoenix design has been reused for several mid-range GPUs.

Since the GTX 1660 is based on Nvidia’s Turing architecture from 2019, it should be highly efficient and quite well suited for a compact form factor. Asus has still been careful to not turn up the clocks too much. In spite of the “OC” in the name, the GPU boost clock has only been increased by about 1%. Performance (out of the box) is therefore comparable to cards using the default clocks.

These results are averages from a variety of systems running the above cards. They should nevertheless correspond well to actual relative GPU performance.

Competing cards: EVGA GTX 1660 XC (Black) – Similar form factor.
