It actually packs a slightly faster clock and boost clock speed, however, at 1,530 Mhz and 1,785 Mhz, compared to 1,500 and 1,770 Mhz on the GTX 1660 Ti. In Europe, the GTX 1660 should go for around €190 excl. tax, which is around €220-230, depending on the region. In the United Kingdom, the price will start at £199.
