ASUS TUF Gaming and Phoenix GeForce GTX 1660

MANILA, Philippines, March 14, 2019 — ASUS today announced GeForce® GTX 1660 graphics cards, adding new products into the TUF Gaming and Phoenix lineups. These new graphics cards follow on the heels of the recently announced GTX 1660 Ti, bringing even more competitive graphics card options for gamers.

The GeForce GTX 1660 GPU leverages the impressive raster performance of the Turing™ architecture to provide an ideal foundation for AAA 1080p gaming, or a plug-and-play upgrade for aging systems.

The 1660 brings a new variable into the market – will this be a phase out to the standing budget kings or will the difference be of significance in deciding on a card that will fit tight budgets. Eitherway, the 1660 will fit the gap of the 1070-1060 as the 1660ti filled the 1070ti-1070 hole when it was released. Only benchmarks can tell what shoes fit the 1660.

Built TUF

Subjected to a battery of compatibility tests with TUF Gaming motherboards, as well as a 144-hour validation program involving a variety of in-game and synthetic benchmarking, the TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1660 targets gamers that prefer a longer upgrade cycle.

To ensure long-term durability, each card is manufactured with ASUS Auto-Extreme technology and reinforced with a backplate. The cooler is also equipped with two 80mm fans that have dual ball bearings, which can last up to twice as long as sleeved designs.

Never Stop Gaming

The Phoenix GeForce GTX 1660 has one large 100mm fan that’s packed full of technology to increase durability and performance while maintaining a small footprint. Our patented Wing-blade fan design incorporates drooped tips to reduce drag, while an IP5X dust-resistant housing protects two sets of ball bearings to ensure a long lifespan.

Phoenix cards are also manufactured using Auto-Extreme technology, an automated production process that utilizes robots to enhance reliability.
