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

The GTX 1660 sports 6GB of DDR5 VRAM, a boost clock speed of nearly 1.8 GHz, and 1408 CUDA cores. It also comes with 6GB of 8Gbps GDDR5 memory on a 192-bit memory interface. 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.

Just like the GTX 1660 Ti, the new GTX 1660 is also equipped with TU116 GPU which is created to provide a balance between performance, power consumption, and cost. There isn't any support for real-time ray tracing in the GTX 1660, but that's okay because it more than makes up for that missing feature in its price. The GTX 1660 Ti's superiority is clearly demonstrated in the memory specifications. 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. That said, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 India price starts at Rs. 21,500 with a release date of March 14.

"So the deluge of rumours were true; a GeForce GTX 1660 has actually been launched". The barrier has now been lowered further with the unveiling of GeForce GTX 1660 graphics cards.
