The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is official: Turing up to 120fps but without RTX or Tensor Cores from 279 dollars
Finally the rumors are over . Today Nvidia has just made official its new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti , a GPU that brings us an interesting approach to its catalog by offering a GPU with features cut but with the latest technology, all at an affordable price that seeks to dominate the mid-range .
And finally the rumors were confirmed, this GeForce GTX 1660 Ti keeps the GTX denomination by not having ray-tracing nor with Tensor Cores , so we can forget about artificial intelligence features, such as Deep Learning Super-Sampling (DLSS ). So let’s see what you have to offer this new Nvidia graphic.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, technical specifications
NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1660 TI
|ARCHITECTURE||12th generation Turing|
|BASE FREQUENCY / BOOST||1500/1770 MHz|
|MEMORY BANDWIDTH||288 Gbps|
|TENSOR CORES||DO NOT|
|PRICE||$ 279/299 euros|
The new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is based on the 12th generation Turing architecture and, according to Nvidia, offers twice the TOPS with respect to Pascal . According to specifications, this GPU is 1.4 times more efficient in energy consumption when compared to the previous generation architecture, so its performance would be the best in its category. Sure, this on paper, we’ll see when we do the respective analysis.
For this GPU we have a TU116 chip manufactured by TSMC using the latest 12 nm Turing architecture, it will only be available with 6GB of GDDR6 RAM at 12Gbps. We also find 1536 CUDA and overclock cores of up to 1.8 GHz, which in theory will offer up to 1.5 times the performance of the GTX 1060 6GB, which is enough to play ‘Fortnite’, ‘PUBG’ and ‘Apex Legends’ at 120fps over 1080p resolution .
The theoretical yield in FP32 is 5,437 GFLOPs. This GPU will include in the reference model a double-slot design, with a total length of 229 millimeters, TDP of 120 watts and an eight-pin connector . As well as a DVI port, an HDMI and three DisplayPort. In addition to support for DX 12.1, OpenGL 4.6, OpenCL 1.2, Vulkan 1.1.96, CUDA 7.5 and Shader Model 6.3, all under a PCIe 3.0 X16 interface.
The GTX 1660 Ti also includes GeForce Experience , with features such as NVIDIA Highlights, NVIDIA Ansel and NVIDIA Freestyle. Broadly speaking, Nvidia compares this GTX 1660 Ti with the GTX 1070 but with significant improvements and a lower price,
