Put on your shocked faces, people, the Nvidia GTX 1660 has arrived and we’re all meant to act surprised that a month after the Ti card launched we’re getting a new version. Don’t look it square in the eyes and I reckon we can pull this off. If the GTX 1660 Ti was the worst kept secret in tech then the existence of the GTX 1660 makes it perhaps the most obvious graphics card ever made. But that’s not to say there aren’t some little surprises to be had with the new Nvidia GeForce GPU.

If that is what you are wondering then you should know that, according to reports, ASRock will be focusing on AMD graphics cards and it does not seem like AMD is looking to increase capacity with the introduction of another partner.

The boom in cryptocurrency prices and mining has dramatically affected recent graphics card prices. It's gotten so bad, that in the past week we've written about how it's a terrible time to buy a graphics card, and why it's currently a better deal to buy a pre-built PC. Even Nvidia has chimed in, suggesting retailers sell to gamers over cryptocurrency miners. But as we've looked a bit deeper into the price history of Nvidia's 10-series graphics cards, it's clear that the current astronomical prices are due to extremely inflated third-party sellers, as major retailers are completely sold out of stock.
