Nvidia has announced the GeForce 1660 TI which plans to slot into the middle of the 10 series range somewhere between the 1060 and the 1070, but at the very reasonable price of £259
This is fantastic news for PC Gamers all over, as the announcement of the RTX 20 series at Gamescom last year left many people scratching their heads as the prices for graphics cards keeps going up and up.
The cards are available right at this very moment from your favourite brands including the
Palit GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Storm X at Overclockers, or the
Asus GeForce GTX Phoenix OC and
MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ventus XS OC over at
The 1660 TI is based upon the 12th generation Turing architecture making it much more power efficient than the previous Pascal version. The 1660 TI is said to be up to 3x faster than the GTX 960 and 1.5x faster than the GTX 1060.
The card will feature 1,536 CUDA cores, 6GB of the new GDDR6 memory running at 12gbps and a boost clock approaching 1.8Ghz which will be overclocked easily for increased performance.
This card looks to be a breath of fresh air for those looking for a more reasonably priced upgrade and should currently run almost every game on the market at a very respectable frame rate.
This is generally fantastic news as it sees PC gaming hardware perhaps take on a new, more reasonably priced trend after years of inflated prices due to cryptocurrency mining and a host of other factors.
