NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti Offering 3X Performance
New affordable graphic card are on the platter of NVIDIA’s GXT series. The latest one is the Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti coming with 6GB of GDDR6 RAM running at 12Gbps, 1,536 CUDA cores and a 1.8GHz boost clock speed that allows further overclocking. It’ll deliver 1.5 times the performance of the GTX 1060 6GB card, with 1.4 times the power efficiency. Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti to be based on the previous Pascal architecture, Nvidia is using its latest 12th-generation Turing GPU architecture instead. That means better performance and less power consumption, but since it’s not an RTX card, you won’t get Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super-Sampling (DLSS) or ray-tracing support.
With NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti and its obligatory siblings lacking support for NVIDIA’s RTX family of features, the company has decided to clarify their product naming in only a way that NVIDIA can. The end result is that along with keeping the GTX prefix rather than RTX – since these parts obviously lack RTX functionality – the company is also giving them a lower series number. Overall it’s probably for the best that NVIDIA didn’t include these cards with the 20 series, least we get another GeForce 4 situation.
Providing 120fps/1080p, Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti is suitable for online games like Fortnite, PUBG and Apex Legends. The Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti is also up to 1.5x faster than the GTX 1060 6GB version. It also boasts of providing 3X performance than its predecessor GXT 1070 costing even less. With a launch price of $279, the new card is launching at $30 above the GTX 1060 6GB it replaces. Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti has a very large performance advantage, but this may be a tough sell since the GTX 960 launched at a much cheaper $199 price point.
