micron g5 on 1660 is not the same as the g5 on pascal. new d9vvr is far more better than old d9tcb.
the new g5 from micron has significant headroom for oc. unlike on pascal eg 1070 the micron g5 in general can oc ~150mhz only.
samsung highest g5 version is native 9gbps. while micron has 8gbps only. i was disspointed about nvidia not choosing the 9gbps from samsung but the new micron g5 shows it is capable to do 9gbps or even 10gbps although timings may be worse on micron g5.

so quick looking at the reviews and my local central eu prices and 1660 is cca 260eur and 1660ti is 300eur including VAT.

difference in performance seems cca 20% so those 40 eur more are very good value

I have the new 1660 up and running in my system and have a mild but stable oc of +250mhz on the memory.

Also back in the day, the D9 micron memory was the best DDR2 you could get. We'd get 2-2-2-6 timings on a good stick. Interesting that Micron has a similar nomenclature on their GDDR line of memory.

micron has the details on the datasheet about g5's timings that samsung wont provide it.
i may check the timings of these two version of g5 from micron to see whether there is any real improvement or just lossening the timings on new g5 for more frequency oc headroom.
