  • Nvidia's Ge Force GTX 1660 is available right now for £199

"We review a GeForce GTX 1660 that is priced spot on that 219 United States dollars marker, the MSRP of the new non-Ti model, meet the petite Palit GeForce GTX 1660 StormX OC edition".

All in all, that puts the GTX 1660 a little behind the more expensive GTX 1660 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1660 GPU leverages the impressive raster performance of the Turing architecture to provide an ideal foundation for AAA 1080p gaming, or a plugand-play upgrade for aging systems. While both cards come with 6GB of VRAM, the GTX 1660 utilizes GDDR5 memory instead of GDDR6 as per GTX 1660 Ti. As with the 1660 Ti, there will not be a Founders Edition card from NVIDIA.

As to performance, the GTX 1660 6GB fits nicely in Nvidia's latest lineup and, according to Nvidia, should be 15 percent faster than the GTX 1060 6GB model at 1080p resolution. 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. It actually packs a slightly faster clock and boost clock speed, however, at 1,530 Mhz and 1,785 Mhz, compared to 1,500 and 1,770 Mhz on the GTX 1660 Ti. 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. 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. 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.
