ASUS Slides The GeForce GTX 1660 Into TUF Gaming and Phoenix Lineups
TAIPEI, Taiwan, 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.
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 utilises robots to enhance reliability.
