https://wccftech.com/nvidia-gtx-1660-ti-benchmark-leaked-20-faster-than-gtx-1060-launching-next-month/
 
NVIDIA is allegedly getting ready to introduce two brand new GeForce gaming graphics cards next month, the GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1660. Both graphics cards are said to be based on the Turing architecture, specifically the TU116 GPU, but without any of the fancy new racy tracing cores.
The cards are expected to slot in right below the $350 RTX 2060 in NVIDIA’s Turing product stack and cost noticeably less. If you don’t care about all that fancy RTX stuff, then these are going to be the cards for you.
 
Thanks to a leak on the AOTS database, we got a little bit of a glimpse into the performance that we should expect from the GTX 1660 Ti, and it’s nothing to snuff at! The card scored 7400 points, 1200 more than the GTX 1200 or equivalent to a 20% performance boost. his would put it close to being in somewhat of a similar league to the GTX 1070, although hopefully at a significantly lower price point. Sounds good for a mid range card.

Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 128GB Corsair RGB Vengeance Pro,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2070

    I really cant stand wccf anymore. I think they just wake up in the morning and make up stories at the breakfast table to put online. Why in the world would Nvidia take a new chip/arch and go backwards with the naming into a naming number scheme they've never used EVER?!? Just so stupid on so many points....

    I agree that it is a stupid naming scheme, but it was leaked at least a month ago, wasn't it? The leak stated that NVIDIA would release a turing non-RTX card/series under the 16xx series name. We'll see what turns out to be true.

    This is the first I heard of this specific scheme but I do remember us all discussing non rtx cards coming out that would keep the GT/gtx scheme at some point.

    WCCF is the creator of pure garbage, but they do include articles that are legit from other sources as a feeble attempt to mask in their piles of stink with the pure, raw uncut news.  In this particular case, Videocardz sources made the find.  Either way, I think the likelihood of a GPU launch with the RTX features disabled is likely in this case due to a defect in the Tensor cores which is a high possibility considering the seemingly higher than normal RTX cards that had issues and NVIDIA's recent announcement that 10xx series cards are close to selling out.

    In any case Nvidia needs at least something for the mid range, the death of Pascal means all Nvidia mid range cards will be too expensive for new builders and if they want to keep AMD at bay they would be smart to have a non RTX version of thier cards.
    Otherwise AMD is going to murder them on the entry level/midrange.

    Pretty sure Nvidia learned their lesson and are back in the hangar optimizing ray tracing and working closely with game developers regarding future implementation of this technology. They are also dedicating time to develop a response to AMD's upcoming flagship.
     
    There's no reason for them to waste time developing something like this given their existing portfolio, and the future endeavour taking shape as we speak.

    Well if they skimp on the midrange its going to be their own fault, thats what arrogance does.
    Yeah lets charge $350 on a midrange card and lets pretend that there are no Polaris cards left unsold.
    Yeah as i said this is going to be a great year for AMD, on the midrange/entry level at least :D
    Nvidia being nvidia will certainly piss off those who are just starting to build.

    Now here is an interesting rumour. Videocardz has reported that NVIDIA may release a GTX1160 GPU alongside the RTX2060 graphics card in mid-January. Since this is a rumour, I strongly suggest taking everything you are about to read with a grain of salt.

    NVIDIA may split branding into GeForce RTX and GeForce GTX series. As you’d suggest, the RTX series will be able to support Ray Tracing while the GTX series will be more “traditional” GPUs based on the Turing architecture. According to the rumour, the GeForce RTX 2060 will feature a TU106-200 GPU while the GeForce GTX 1160 will feature TU116.

    Last but not least, the GTX1160 will be called GeForce GTX 1660Ti and its marketing material mentions ‘Turing Shaders’ instead of ‘Ray Tracing’.

    2070/2060 are mid-range. Bit pricey but mid-range. AMD will hold ground lower mid-range with Polaris while the RTX cards overpower Vega 56, 64 and Radeon 7 at their respective tiers until Navi shows up.
     
    There is nothing to do for either company but wait and move around a little to prevent bedsores.

    I don't know if I'd consider $350-$500 as mid-range...just a few years ago $500 was the top GPU. GTX680 from 2012 has an MSRP of $500 which was the top end card. Now only 6 years later, $500 is mid-range? Has inflation doubled since 2012?

    The product is mid-range. The prices are inflated.

    The GTX 680 was actually a Kepler mid-range card that Nvidia dumped on us at a high-end card price because they were beating AMD so bad they could get away with it.
     
    When Nvidia finally did offer us a real Kepler high-end card it was the GTX 780 with a MSRP of $649.99. The GTX 780 Ti was $699.99 MSRP and they also offered the Titan and Titan Black for $999.99 MSRP and the Titan Z for $2,999.99 MSRP.
     
    The GTX 680 came out 7 years ago and the GTX 780 around 5 years ago. That's a long time ago and the cards Nvidia offers now makes those cards look silly in performance while offering features we didn't think would be out right now. Am I happy with Nvidia's pricing? No, but I understand their prices.
