Sticking to its veteran product lineup technique, Nvidia launched its GeForce GTX 1660 mid-entry-level model of its present Turing-generation graphics playing cards to fill the $200-$220 value band at the moment occupied by its GTX 1060. That offers it two graphics playing cards with the Turing structure within the $200-$300 vary after Februrary’s 1660 Ti launch.

While there are rumors of a GTX 1650/1650 Ti, which might be the true entry-level playing cards for populating price range gaming techniques at the moment utilizing the GTX 1050/1050 Ti, there’s been no official phrase. No rumbles a couple of 1670 as but.

Both 1660-model playing cards are focused at delivering respectable 1080p gaming efficiency. As Tom’s Hardware’s take a look at outcomes present, it pushes some extra video games over the 60fps line the place the 1060 it replaces fell quick — it seems just like the hole is wider for DirectX12 than DirectX 11 — but when you are going to need to step as much as 1440p within the close to future, it in all probability will not serve you very effectively and the Ti model can be a greater choice.
