The GeForce GTX 1660 is a GPU from NVIDIA released in 2019.
This chip has a good gaming score at 35% in our GPU benchmark.
The GeForce GTX 1660 has 6 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 187 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 192 bits. When choosing a GPU, plan ahead and select a model with enough memory for your needs. High resolutions such as 4K require significantly more memory than 1080p as there is more data to display on the screen.
In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 1660 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1530 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1785 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.
As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 1660 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.
Power and thermals for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 120 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
