NVIDIA's GTX 1660 lowers the high-performance gaming price barrier

Nvidia Ge Force GTX 1660 Price in India Release Date Revealed

It was only a few weeks ago that NVIDIA has launched the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti which has lowered the access price for Turing-based cards. It also comes with 6GB of 8Gbps GDDR5 memory on a 192-bit memory interface.

We knew it was coming, and it's finally officially here: Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660. There are 1,408 CUDA cores, 6GB of GDDR5 memory for a combined memory bandwidth of 192GB/Sec and a boost clock of nearly 1.8GHz, plus overclocking potential.

Bucks' Malcolm Brogdon Diagnosed With Minor Plantar Fascia Tear in Right Foot
The Heat's lead over Orlando and Charlotte for the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference was trimmed to just one game. Heat: It was the fourth time in franchise history that Miami lost when leading by 20 or more at the half.

The GTX 1660 shows Turing's power efficiency at its best, and with a TDP of 120W, you can expect an average power consumption of around 100W. But at the £200 price mark, it looks to be a good mid-range GPU that will rival the likes of AMD's Radeon RX 590 and will be a direct replacement for the excellent but now oldish GeForce GTX 1060. Move forward three years to today and that problem is fairly mute, considering NVIDIA has just released the VR-ready GeForce GTX 1660 starting from £199.

The Phoenix GeForce GTX 1660 has one large 100mm fan that's packed full of technology to increase durability and performance while maintaining a small footprint. It promises to be 130 percent faster than the GTX 960 and 35 percent faster than the GTX 1060 3GB at 1080p according to Nvidia, which should make it a decent option for 1080p gaming if it holds true in real world tests. Nvidia has given the GTX 1660 an MSRP of US$219, and Newegg now has boards from ZOTAC, Gigabyte, MSI, and EVGA selling for US$219.99.
