When NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti last month to replace the GTX 1070, rumors started surfacing that the company is going to come up with yet another mid-range GTX 16-series card to replace one of its most popular GPUs, the GTX 1060. The speculations are now more or less confirmed with the pictures of the upcoming GeForce GTX 1660 non-Ti being leaked.
The GeForce GTX 1660 will be based on NVIDIA’s Turing architecture and will feature TU116-300 GPU with a total of 1408 CUDA cores. The card is expected to be provided with 6 GB of GDDR5 VRAM unlike the GTX 1660 Ti which had GDDR6 memory. The memory on GTX 1660 is clocked at 8 Gbps.
The cards pictured are from MSI and there will be three different series, GAMING, ARMOR, and VENTUS. All of them will feature a single 8-pin power connector. Additionally, MSI will also be coming up with a VENTUS C and AERO ITX series, each in an OC and non-OC model.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 will have a reference clock speed of 1530/1785 MHz with custom models like GAMING X boosting up to 1860 MHz.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 is expected to launch on March 14th. The price is speculated to be $219 according to some sources.
