The always-great VideoCardz is on point with the leaks, with the GeForce GTX 1660 expected to launch on March 14 starting at $219, with 6GB of GDDR5 memory (not GDDR6 like its higher-end GTX 1660 Ti bigger sibling).

EVGA will also have the GeForce GTX 1660 XC BLACK which will arrive as a thicker triple-slot card, but will drop a fan down to a single-fan cooler.

The single-fan cooler should keep the TU116 cool, but the ULTRA variant will definitely have more oomph when it comes to overclocking and cooling.

The triple-slot design is not that great IMO, considering this is a lower-end card, but still it'll perform well.
