    I think this is the longest we've had to wait for a GPU review in a while. :D

    This is quite consistently beating Radeon 580. AMD can't get Navi out soon enough. It's not like they could lower the prices much anymore, yet their old products have lost the performance race for good now.

    That ought to be GTX 1660. Such confusing numbering, to be honest. Nobody can be blamed for mistyping occasionally.

    That was already fixed, but thanks. And yeah, the numbering is a bit of a drag with this series.

    Did you ever notice coil whine on any of the Zotac cards that you tested? Or any other brand for that matter? I guess it will also be situation specific, like very high FPS on an in-game menu for instance....hopefully not during actual game-play.

    Lot's of high-end Zotacs had coil whine as I noted in all the reviews. This one, however, did not have any substantial enough whine. Mind you that any card given an extremely high-FPS will make a bit of it.

    Though sell here in Denmark, 40 € cheaper then a Vega 56, but the Vega has 3 games in the box, so essentially the same price, if you want the games.

    Vega56 is also a much faster card.

    this card is an easy sale to system builders. you can do a proper 1080p, which is as mainstream as it gets and the price is in the right neighborhood. Nvidia really must want the cash as there are no games bundled...which imho comes off as arrogant. the games don't even have to be good...i won't be surprised to see Fortnite editions (or the similar) w/rgb for extra money.

    Great review Hilbert , nice read thank you. Not bad for 1080p gaming and i see temps and low tdp helps a lot on this video card but i believe price should be lower in my opinion.

    Good to know thanks Hilbert (PS : I don't always have time to read every review word for word, but I try ;) )
