Gaming at 2560 x 1440

We also ran the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XC Black Gaming through our suite at 2560 x 1440. In some games, quality settings that worked well at 1920 x 1080 were still viable. In others, we needed to dial back the detail.

After a bit of tuning, we ended up with a suite-wide average of 66.4 FPS from EVGA’s entry-level GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition, for comparison, achieved 68.1 FPS—a lead of less than 3 percent.

    In that review they added a link to this review, which should have been the initial link/review for this post IMO:

    Yea this is odd, it should of been 1660 ti > 1660 Super >1650 Super over the last few months.

    Edit: Here's a 1660 ti TH review from May.

    I also noticed that the i5 9600K review article says it was posted today, and has a new comments section.

    That EVGA GPU is one of the cutest-looking GPU I've seen in a while, I'm thinking of picking one up just from the way it looks
