Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti appears at Retail - Specifications Leaked

Nvidia's GTX 1660 Ti has appeared at several Russian retailers, revealing the specifications of Nvidia next graphics card, a GPU that delivers more compute units than the GTX 1060, boosted memory bandwidth and the computational benefits offered by the company's Turing architecture. 

Palit's Geforce GTX 1660 Ti Storm X has been listed by two Russian retailers, as spotted by Videocardz, revealing a CUDA core count of 1,536MHz 6GB of GDDR6 memory and a boost clock of 1770MHz. 

On top of these specifications, Nvidia's GTX 1660 Ti packs GDDR6 memory that's slower than the higher-end RTX 2060, dropping its speeds from 14Gbps to 12Gbps. Even with this decrease, the GTX 1660 Ti's memory offers 50% more bandwidth than 8Gbps GDDR5, delivering bandwidth levels that easily surpassed both the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070. 

It is worth noting that Nvidia's Turing architecture offers a myriad of computational benefits on modern game renderers, thanks to the architecture's independent integer and floating point execution pipelines. This upgrade provides notable performance benefits in game engines that are typically considered AMD-friendly such as Frostbite, the RE Engine and id Tech 6.

I hope this card makes into TTL towers for testing and I also hope there will be a 1070 on the charts for comparison

Sadly, DLSS is done by the tensor cores, right? Would've loved to see a cheaper new card without RayTracing capabilities, but with DLSS.Quote

Do we know if this drops the Tensor cores yet?Quote

GTX would probably dictate? no idea.

It would be useless for 4k any way.Quote

it will be a 1070. Hope it's cheap enough to be a good buy.Quote

If not, I'm going for a used 1070.
Or 1070 Ti, if I can find one locally...Quote
