Zotac GeForce GTX 1660 Ti AMP Turing Gaming Card Breaks Cover Early
The only thing getting leaked more often than Samsung's Galaxy S10 lineup (which launches today) is NVIDIA's rumored GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card. Well, technically it is a rumored model, but it seems pretty clear it exists at this point. Adding to the list of leaks is yet another set of press renders depicting the unannounced card.
In addition to various others that we have seen so far, Zotac is also readying a couple of new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti cards, a Twin Fan edition and an Amp model. Both cards feature a Turing GPU underneath the hood, though it's presumably a new version that lacks RT cores and Tensor cores, hence the GTX designation instead of RTX.
It's said the Amp edition uses a different printed circuit board (PCB) than the Twin Fan model, though detailed specs are not known at this time. Otherwise, we can see that both cards sport custom coolers with two fans, and take up two expansion slots.
They also share the same selection of outputs, which consists of three DisplayPort connectors and a single HDMI port. It looks as though the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will draw power from a single 8-pin PCI Express power connector.
We have seen various other leaked press assets, including ones from EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, and Palit. There's also a photo of an actual retail box from a Galax model that has made the rounds online. All of the packaging we have seen make references to Turing Shaders and 6GB of of GDDR6 memory.
Leaked benchmarks suggest the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will be quite a bit faster than a GeForce GTX 1060, though not as peppy as a GeForce GTX 1070. Time will tell how it all actually shakes out, though, and perhaps very soon—it's rumored NVIDIA will announce its GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660 models this Friday.
