NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Offers VR-Ready Gaming for Only £199

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

Just like the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti which was released last month, the new GeForce GTX 1660 aims to replace the GeForce GTX 1060 by offering NVIDIA's 12 generation Turing GPU architecture, just without the Ray Tracing and Tensor Cores found in the more expensive Geforce RTX series.

Nvidia has announced the GeForce GTX 1660 India price and release date. The memory itself is now 6GB GDDR5 instead of 6GB GDDR6. Obviously, there are differences in the GPU engine, with the Ti version having more CUDA cores (1536 vs. 1408). 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.

With the GTX 1660, NVIDIA claims you will see a performance improvement of 35% over the GTX 1060 3GB at 1080p and over 130% over the GTX 960.

The GTX 1660 offers similar features to the GTX 1660 Ti in terms of API support, G-Sync compatibility, GPU Boost, and Ansel (photo mode for game screenshots).
