Turing technology for US$219: Nvidia announces the GeForce GTX 1660

On sale today for a starting price of £199, the GTX 1660 comes with 1,408 CUDA cores, 6GB of GDDR5 video memory with a bandwidth of 192GBps, and has a boost clock speed of 1.8GHz; Nvidia noted that clock speed could easily be increased with some overclocking. The GTX 1660 Ti's superiority is clearly demonstrated in the memory specifications. 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.

We knew it was coming, and it's finally officially here: Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660. Most cards will need a single 8-pin PCIe power connector which is pretty much overkill, allowing the card to draw up to 225W, which will allow Nvidia AIC partners to pull a bit more MHz on the GPU Boost front. 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. In the United Kingdom, the price will start at £199. Priced at Rs. 21,500, the 1660 is all set to take over the mid-range market from the GTX 1060 and 1070 quite smoothly.


There are plenty of reviews around and you can check out some of them below.

We were informed that GTX 1660 will be made available through NVIDIA GeForce Official Store on Lazada Malaysia soon as well. For instance, in February's Steam Hardware & Software Survey the fifth most popular card was the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 which came out in 2014.
