NVIDIA today launched the GeForce GTX 1660 6 GB graphics card, its successor to the immensely popular GTX 1060 6 GB. With prices starting at $219.99, the GTX 1660 is based on the same 12 nm "TU116" silicon as the GTX 1660 Ti launched last month; with fewer CUDA cores and a slower memory interface. NVIDIA carved the GTX 1660 out by disabling 2 out of 24 "Turing" SMs on the TU116, resulting in 1,408 CUDA cores, 88 TMUs, and 48 ROPs. The company is using 8 Gbps GDDR5 memory instead of 12 Gbps GDDR6, which makes its memory sub-system 33 percent slower. The GPU is clocked at 1530 MHz, with 1785 MHz boost, which are marginally higher than the GTX 1660 Ti. The GeForce GTX 1660 is a partner-driven launch, meaning that there won't be any reference-design cards, although NVIDIA made should every AIC partner has at least one product selling at the baseline price of $219.99.

Another perfect card for 1080p gaming and surely laptops/mobile too. Can't wait for Navi to spice things up when it finally lands but for now recommending the 1660's to people seems a no brainer if they're coming from say a 970 or slower.
