Will the GTX 1660 Ti cards have the same exact performance of the GTX 1070?
After NVIDIA had catastrophic losses in the stock market, much due to the crash of the market of GTX 1070 mining, but also because of the ‘Fail’ that the RTX 20 series have been.
Here’s the bet in the mid-range where, after all, that’s where brands really make money.
Firstly, NVIDIA introduced the RTX 2060, an exciting offer but deep down, it’s still too expensive for the vast majority of gamers.
Subsequently, began to reach the Internet, several indications, that the GTX 1660 Ti was almost to come!
If you do not know, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is a mid-range card based on the new NVIDIA Turing architecture. That is, based on the same architecture, which gave rise to the RTX 2080 Ti.
Apparently, this new offer from NVIDIA is even to dominate the midrange, with the graphics card reaching the market, between 300-350€ in Europe, and in the US, it will be between $250-300.
In the prospect, an exciting offer, if we consider the performance leaks!
That indicates a board that is arguably less powerful than the RTX 2060, but still perfectly capable of delivering performance at the level of the old ‘best seller’ GTX 1070.
Interestingly, this demonstrates the evolution of architectures.
After all, the old GTX 1070 ‘Pascal,’ has 1920 CUDA cores. While the new GTX 1660 Ti ‘Turing’ has significantly less, with 1536 cores at its core.
GTX 1660 Ti – In short, an increase in the IPC and clock frequencies was enough for the mid-range to reach one of the most popular graphics cards of the last generation.
However, it must be taken into account that the GTX 1070 has more memory. With 8GB instead of the 6GB of the GTX 1660 Ti.
Still, the new card has GDDR6 memory instead of GDDR5. The NVIDIA graphics card that is expected to reign the mid-range in the coming times arrives at the end of the month!
But attention, despite being based on the ‘Turing’ architecture … It does not have any RTX or DLSS capability, so you have to look more up in that range of cards if looking for that new technology.
NVIDIA is also launching GTX 1660 Ti 3GB graphics cards, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 3GB.
It seems like, as it did with the GTX 1060, NVIDIA is planning to release a 3GB version of its upcoming graphics cards.
How do we know this? Thanks to a leak coming from the website of the Eurasian Economic Commission.
That now also has already listed the upcoming graphics cards based on the Turing architecture, no RTX or DLSS capabilities.
It seems that NVIDIA might have some success with the GTX 1660 Ti of 3GB… And so it will bet again on this mid-range graphics formula.
