The 1660 might be ok, but I prefer to use it for Wieferich/Wall-Sun-Sun search currently and as Happy said, it'd need to be really fast to compete against the 12 cores of the Ryzen 9 3900X.

Btw, hijack all you want, I'm glad to hear about such things.
I agree, just using 6 cores on my 3800xt provides around 4-5 mp /s but using -G 2 - g40 (which seems to be the limit of improving efficiency for me) on a gtx 1650 with ddr6 only gives me around 1 mp/s.
