Observing this ‘Twin Fan’ model of the GTX 1660 SUPER, we have an extremely compact graphics card which measures a mere 173.4 x 111.15 x 35.3 mm. This design lends itself to fitting inside smaller cases, including SFF very well indeed. Viewing the card from a top-down angle reveals the reason ZOTAC has named this card ‘Twin Fan’, we have two cooling fans which are different sizes – a 70mm and an 80mm. Underneath these fans we have a one-piece alu heatsink which utilises 3x6mm copper heatpipes. The shroud which surrounds the fans on this model, is plastic.
Over on the reverse of our graphics card there is no metal backplate which is now a common inclusion on most models. Such a feature is usually a necessity due to the sheer weight and size of larger graphics cards, Twin Fan obviously doesn’t suffer from either of these drawbacks and so from a practical standpoint there isn’t a requirement for one.
As is standard for the GTX 1660 SUPER, there are three video outs supplied – 1x HDMI 2.0 (Up to 4K@60Hz) and 3x DisplayPort 1.4 (Up to 8K@60Hz). This will allow users to project to larger screens.
ZOTAC recommends a 450W PSU for effectively powering this model of the GTX 1660 SUPER and we therefore need a single 8-pin connector in order to achieve this. This isn’t very demanding and it also goes hand-in-hand with the SFF philosophy.
