The GeForce GTX 1660 is a performance graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2019. Built on the 12 nm process, and based on the TU116 graphics processor, in its TU116-300-A1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The TU116 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 284 mm² and 6,600 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, which uses the same GPU but has all 1536 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the GeForce GTX 1660 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 1408 shading units, 88 texture mapping units and 48 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 6,144 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 192-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1530 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1785 MHz, memory is running at 2001 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 draws power from 1x 8-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 120 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort. GeForce GTX 1660 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 229 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 219 US Dollars.
