NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX lineup accomplished with the GeForce RTX 2060 and NVIDIA is now shifting to supply extra inexpensive graphics playing cards below their GeForce GTX household. That includes the identical Turing GPU structure, the brand new GeForce GTX graphics playing cards will exclude Ray Tracing however function sooner shading efficiency by the improved GPU design whereas using the 12nm course of node.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Customized Designs, Specs Leak Out As Card Will get Listed On-line By Retailers
Replace (11/02/2019): When you are studying this, Videocardz has posted extra photos of some extra customized fashions coming in from EVGA and Palit. The particular mannequin is the EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XC (Black) and the Palit GeForce GTX 1660 Ti StormX. The EVGA playing cards are available in a triple slot design with a significantly beefy heatsink and single fan cooler whereas the Palit variant is available in a dual-slot single fan design. The playing cards are stated to launch formally of 22nd of February across the value factors I beforehand talked about under. The customized fashions are prone to value a bit additional whereas supplying you with greater manufacturing unit overclocks.
The most recent leaks come from Videocardz who haven’t solely managed to trace some on-line listings but in addition obtained photos of the primary packaging of a customized design from an APAC AIB (Add-in-board) associate. The cardboard in query is the GALAX GeForce GTX 1660 Ti which is a customized mannequin providing twin fan cooler and OC capabilities. The cardboard is talked about to function 6 GB GDDR6 VRAM, DirectX 12 help, ANSEL help and likewise has “Turing Shaders” which just about confirms that these playing cards will make the most of the prevailing Turing GPU structure.
What’s fascinating right here is that the packaging doesn’t point out ray tracing in any respect which was a high-light on GeForce RTX sequence packagings. This additionally confirms the second element we knew about these playing cards that they gained’t function Ray Tracing cores or gained’t have the required energy to run video games with ray tracing enabled.
Different specs embrace the show configuration which comes with DVI-D, HDMI, and Show Port. You possibly can be aware the shortage of the USB Kind-C (Digital Hyperlink) connector however that was additionally not provided on many customized RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 playing cards. There isn’t a lot to see on the again aspect of the field however not less than this leak confirms that we’ll get customized fashions prepared for launch.
In different information, we additionally obtained to see retailer listings on-line a couple of days in the past with customized fashions from varied AIBs being listed on retailer web sites. Beforehand identified specs resembling the bottom clock of 1500 MHz, enhance clock of 1770 MHz and a reminiscence frequency of 12.Zero Gbps are confirmed. The itemizing additionally confirms 1536 CUDA cores, 96 TMUs, and a single eight pin energy connector in addition up the cardboard.

Now what’s fascinating right here is that the explanation NVIDIA merely didn’t need core parity with the RTX 2060 would’ve been that the GTX 1660 Ti would have cannibalized the RTX brethren’s gross sales. If NVIDIA had gone for 1920 Cores with the one function missing over the RTX 2060 being the ray tracing cores, the GTX 1660 Ti would’ve been a a lot better choice for mainstream customers, given it might’ve value much less and delivered nearly the identical efficiency. And with RTX nonetheless not being applied in lots of titles, shoppers would’ve ended up shopping for extra GTX 1660 Ti playing cards over the RTX 2060.
Speaking particularly about shading efficiency which would be the important know-how and structure function of the GeForce GTX playing cards, it appears to be like like we’re taking a look at a median 50% improved shading efficiency per core in comparison with Pascal. This isn’t the general efficiency improve however slightly the speed at which Turing improves upon its predecessor in shader efficiency. Some leaks earlier confirmed a 20-30% improve in efficiency over the GTX 1060 however we must wait for more information to see the ultimate efficiency outcomes.
The phrase from Chinese language sources is that the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, the quickest of the 2 TU116 variants, shall be launching in February for a value round 2399 RMB which is roughly round $350 US. The GeForce GTX 1660 shall be out there a month later in March and would fall round $250 – $300 US.
