Nvidia officially launches the Geforce GTX 1660

ASUS today announced GeForce GTX 1660 graphics cards, adding new products into the TUF Gaming and Phoenix lineups.

All in all, that puts the GTX 1660 a little behind the more expensive GTX 1660 Ti. It also comes with 6GB of 8Gbps GDDR5 memory on a 192-bit memory interface.

China's home price growth slips to 10-month low as economy slows
China is grappling with a decline in global demand - most notably from the United States , which launched a trade war past year . Retail sales rose 9 percent from one year earlier to 38.1 trillion yuan (about 5.7 trillion USA dollars) in 2018.

NVIDIA claims that the GTX 1660 is an impressive 130% faster than the GTX 960, so if you've got one of those cards in your rig and you've been thinking of upgrading, this might be a good way to get some extra power without going broke. 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. 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. While NVIDIA says that it offers a 35% speed boost over the 3GB GTX 1060 while playing games at 1080p, the real gains become obvious when the 1660 is compared to older Maxwell cards. That said, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 India price starts at Rs. 21,500 with a release date of March 14. The barrier has now been lowered further with the unveiling of GeForce GTX 1660 graphics cards.

Sebastian has given you a look at the triple slot EVGA GTX 1660 XC Black as well as the dual fan and dual slot MSI GTX 1660 GAMING X, both doing well in benchmarks especially when overclocked.
