We are only a couple of weeks removed from the launch of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and NVIDIA is already at it again. This time around, we have yet another affordably-priced, Turing-based GPU to show you all, the GeForce GTX 1660 – sans Ti. As its naming suggest, the new GeForce GTX 1660 is very similar to its more-powerful counterpart; they’re both based on the same GPU, but a few cores and other components have been disabled in the GTX 1660. A handful of other changes have been made with the GeForce GTX 1660 as well, which push the card down a rung in terms of performance, but also bring down the price. We have a couple of GeForce GTX 1660 cards on tap for you here, one from EVGA... Read more...
The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti was one of the worst kept secrets in the tech industry, as specs and retail card leaks kept leaking on a continual basis. Last week, we were finally able to get a true glimpse of what this "budget" card can do and it dominates the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1060 while offering comparable performance to the GeForce GTX 1070. However, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti isn't the only cut-down Turing-based card coming from NVIDIA. Word on the street is that it will be joined by the lower-spec’d GeForce GTX 1660 and GeForce GTX 1650. A new report from DigiTimes claims that is has confirmed not only the pricing of the news new gaming cards, but also their launch... Read more...
This is shaping up to be an interesting month in graphics. AMD is about to launch its Radeon VII to retail, and unofficially, NVIDIA is rumored to have a couple of non-RTX Turing cards up its sleeve—GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660. While not yet official, the Ti model is already starting to show up at retail sites in Russia. Unless everything has been a smoke screen up to this point, both cards will feature a Turing GPU inside, but without dedicated RT cores enabled (or perhaps even present) for real-time ray tracing. NVIDIA could go about this by disabling the RT cores, or launching a new Turing GPU altogether. We also suspect that DLSS support will be a no-go as well. The goal... Read more...
Here’s a rather big bombshell that could shake up the graphics market. A new report has alleged pricing for the rumored NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card, and it looks quite appealing. According to sources that have spoken with HardOCP, the GeForce RTX 1660 Ti, which is said to be based on a de-contented version of NVIDIA's Turing GPU, will have an MSRP of $279. The graphics card is reportedly set to launch on February 15th. But that's not all, those same sources indicate that a standard GeForce GTX 1660 will arrive a month later priced at $229, while an even lower spec’d GeForce GTX 1650 will arrive priced at $179. While all of these cards will feature a Turing... Read more...
NVIDIA has not yet formally introduced its upcoming GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660 graphics cards to the public at large, but lest anyone is still skeptical that they exist (and are coming), a picture of a recent presentation might convince them otherwise. It appears to show NVIDIA discussing the new cards with its hardware partners. Click to Enlarge (Source: gamer.com.tw) The picture was originally posted to a web forum in Taiwan with the claim that it was taken in China. In it, we see NVIDIA giving a presentation on the new cards. The slide in the background says, "One more thing, new GTX Turing," and shows a partial shot of the GeForce GTX 1660 or GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (the picture... Read more...
Oftentimes where there is smoke, there is also fire. Well, there has been plenty of figurative smoke signals suggesting that NVIDIA is readying a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card with Turing underneath the hood, but without real-time ray tracing hardware. There has also been mention of a non-Ti variant, along with some details about the memory configuration of each card. First, let's talk about why the rumor is plausible. From our perspective, it seems like a foregone conclusion that NVIDIA will eventually release a batch of new generation GPUs that lack real-time ray tracing capabilities, for gamers who want to upgrade without paying a premium for a feature they might not be interested in....

Dating back to even before NVIDIA launched its GeForce RTX series, there were rumors that some of its next-generation cards (which are now current generation) would lack real-time ray tracing hardware, and carry the "GTX" moniker instead of RTX. We haven't seen that yet, though a fresh rumor suggests that more GTX cards are actually being developed. Early speculation suggested NVIDIA might release a GeForce GTX 2060 model with the RT cores disabled. The logic behind the idea was that the lower end GPU wouldn't be have enough muscle to process real-time ray tracing effects even with the RT cores enabled, though that might not be the case. It now looks like there will be a GeForce RTX 2060 instead... Read more...
