Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 is available right now for £199

NVIDIA GTX 1660 brings Turing to Battle Royale fans on a budget

The GTX 1660 uses the same TU116 Turing GPU as the 1660 Ti but has 6GB of DDR5, rather than DDR6 memory. It also comes with 6GB of 8Gbps GDDR5 memory on a 192-bit memory interface.

Nvidia has announced the GeForce GTX 1660 India price and release date. 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. Obviously, there are differences in the GPU engine, with the Ti version having more CUDA cores (1536 vs. 1408). As with the 1660 Ti, there will not be a Founders Edition card from NVIDIA.


Both cards have a TDP of 120W and can be powered from a single 8-pin connector. While NVIDIA says that it offers a 35% speed boost over the 3GB GTX 1060 while playing games at 1080p, the real gains become obvious when the 1660 is compared to older Maxwell cards. 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.

"So the deluge of rumours were true; a GeForce GTX 1660 has actually been launched". 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. Fret not though, plenty of NVIDIA add-in board partners have come out with their own take on GTX 1660 including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, GIGABYTE, Inno3d, MSI, Palit, and ZOTAC.
