GeForce GTX 1660 Spotted in Presentation - TU116 with GDDR5 and GDDR6 inbound

Published by


It seems there cannot pass a single day not talking about the non Raytracing GeForce GTX 1660. A photo of a presentation surfaced, and check out what is showing in the backgound, yes .. the GeForce GTX 1660.

So yes, the GeForce GTX 1660 is arriving rather sooner than later. If you look closer at the slide you can see a reference model with the model number. Next to the card is the text "one more thing - new GTX Turing". That implies that at least one chip with the new Turing architecture will arrive. There would be two video cards based on the chip, namely the GTX 1660 and the 1660 Ti. The Ti variant will very likely get GDDR6 graphics memory, the non-Ti would get GDDR5 graphics memory as well as a 6GB and 3GB configuration. The 1660 series would not have raytracing cores. It remains unknown if tensor cores are present. We expect the cards to occupy the 200 to 300 USD price domain.

This is the rumored deck of cards you might see:
