NVIDIA's GeForce RTX series has been completed with the GeForce RTX 2060. NVIDIA now offers lower-priced graphics cards for their GeForce GTX family. Using the same Turing GPU architecture, the new GeForce GTX graphics cards eliminate ray tracing, but offer faster shading performance thanks to the improved GPU design when using the 12nm process node.
Custom NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti specifications, card leakage specifications listed online by retailers
The latest leaks come from Videocardz, who not only tracked down some online entries, but also captured images of the first packaging of a custom design from one APAC AIB (Add-in-Board) partner. The card in question is the GALAX GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, a custom model with dual fan coolers and OC capabilities. The card is said to offer 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM, DirectX 12 support, ANSEL support, and also "Turing shaders," almost confirming that these cards will use the existing Turing GPU architecture.
Interestingly, here is the packaging at all No ray-tracing mentioned, which was a special highlight Packaging of the GeForce RTX series. This also confirms the second detail that we knew about these cards, that they do not have ray-tracing cores or that they do not have the power to run games with Ray-Tracing enabled.
Other specifications include the display configuration, which includes DVI-D, HDMI and display connection. You may find that there is no USB Type-C (Virtual Link) port, but it has not been offered on many RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 custom cards. There is not much to see on the back of the box, but at least this leak confirms that we will be preparing custom models for the launch.
In other news, we also saw merchant lists online a few days ago Custom models from various AIBs listed on retailer websites. Previously known specifications such as the base clock of 1500 MHz, the boost clock of 1770 MHz and a memory frequency of 12.0 Gbit / s are confirmed. The list also confirms 1536 CUDA cores, 96 TMUs and a single 8-pin power connector to power up the card.

659009] Now it's interesting that NVIDIA simply did not want core parity with the RTX 2060 because the GTX 1660 Ti had weakened sales of RTX brothers. If NVIDIA had waived 1920 cores and the only feature the RTX 2060 can not do is the ray-tracing cores, the GTX 1660 Ti would have been a better choice for mainstream users, as it would have cost less and that same performance And since RTX is still not implemented in many titles, consumers would eventually have bought more GTX 1660 Ti cards via the RTX 2060.
Especially about the shading performance that will be the key technology and architectural features of the GeForce GTX cards It looks like we're seeing an average 50% better shading performance per core compared to Pascal. This is not the overall performance improvement, but rather the speed with which Turing improves its predecessor in shader performance. With some failures, the performance increased by 20 to 30% compared to the GTX 1060. However, we will have to wait for more information to see the final performance results.
According to Chinese sources, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is the fastest. The two TU116 variants will be launched in February at a price of around 2399 RMB (about 350 US dollars). The GeForce GTX 1660 will be available a month later in March and would drop $ 250 to $ 300.
