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. Like the 1660 Ti, the standard 1660 is built on NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture, so it shares something with the company's top-of-the-line RTX cards. It also comes with 6GB of 8Gbps GDDR5 memory on a 192-bit memory interface.
ASUS Announces ROG Strix, ASUS Dual, TUF Gaming, and Phoenix GeForce GTX 1660 Ti - 02/22/2019 04:59 PMASUS today announced four new flavors of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card, spanning the ROG Strix, ASUS Dual, TUF Gaming, and Phoenix product lines.

Nvidia touted that the GTX 1660 offers 15 per cent faster performance than the 6GB GTX 1060 at 1080p resolution. Pricing starts from £199 and NVIDIA won't be making a Founders Edition of the GPU. 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.
