"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". Built on the same 6th generation Turing architecture as the GTX 1660 Ti and the RTX series, the new GTX 1660 starts at $219, making it the cheapest Turing based GPU so far. Obviously, there are differences in the GPU engine, with the Ti version having more CUDA cores (1536 vs. 1408). The memory itself is now 6GB GDDR5 instead of 6GB GDDR6.

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).

NVIDIA also notes that because the GTX 1660 is 120 watts anyone who owns a GTX 960 or GTX 970 card should be able to upgrade without changing their power supply, so long as they have an 8-pin power connector. 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. According to Nvidia, it's 35% faster than the GTX 1060 and 130% faster than the GTX 960.
