GeForce GTX 1660 Ti AOTS Benchmarks Show Big Performance Gains Over GTX 1060

At this point, it’s not a matter of if, but when NVIDIA will drop its GeForce GTX 1660 Ti on the gaming community. We’ve seen the leaked specifications, board shots, up close TU116 Turing GPU images, retail boxes and even limited benchmarks.

Now we’re receiving another round of benchmarks for the unreleased graphics card courtesy of hardware leaker TUM_APISAK. He took to Twitter to post the following benchmark results for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti in Ashes of the Singularity (AOTS). With all cards running at 1080p resolution with the “Crazy” preset, this is how they stacked up:

  • GeForce GTX 1660 Ti: 4800
  • GeForce RTX 2060: 5500
  • GeForce GTX 1060 :3800
  • GeForce GTX 1070: 4900

While the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is no match for the entry-level ray tracing card -- the GeForce RTX 2060 -- it is roughly 25 percent faster than the GeForce GTX 1060. In addition, its performance is just ever so slightly behind the GeForce GTX 1070.

The performance figures join the leaked Final Fantasy XV benchmarks that we reported on over the weekend (also supplied by TUM_APISAK). In those benchmarks the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti was shown to be on part with the GeForce GTX 1070, while outpacing the GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB) by around 40 percent at 2560x1440 resolution (High Quality).

At this point, these are the rumored specifications for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and its non-Ti sibling:

  • GeForce GTX 1660 Ti: 1,536 CUDA cores, 96 Texture Units, 1,500MHz base clock, 1,770MHz boost clock, 6GB GDDR6 memory, 192-bit memory bus, 6,000MHz memory clock
  • GeForce GTX 1660: 1,280 CUDA cores, 80 Texture Units, 1,530MHz base clock, 1,785MHz boost clock, 6GB GDDR5 memory, 192-bit memory bus, 4,000MHz memory clock

If the previously leaked information is accurate, NVIDIA will announce the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660 on February 22nd priced at $279 and $229 respectively.
