The truth is that apart from the official filtration of Lenovo, there is nothing tangible, at least for now.
In the same way it is being informed in front of any variance or rumor with foundation on which possibly they are the GPU star for notebooks.
Because it seems that it will be, the GTX 1660 should be aimed at the laptop market. although there are many rumors that say they will be wrongly called RTX 2060 without Ray Tracing or DLSS and that they will also reach the desktop market through a new PCB PG161 of 10 layers for the Titanium version (it would share the same as the RTX 2060) while the other two versions would arrive with a new PCB PG165 with only 6 layers and therefore much lower cost.
Nvidia 1660Ti vs 1660 comparison
In the same way, what is exposed here is a compilation of the rumors, leaks and in definite data. that we have been launching or they have been filtering or simply they arrive to us by our sources.
Obviously, none of them has obtained the approval of NVIDIA, although according to the dates that are being considered, we should be close to a pronouncement or declaration of intentions at least.
The truth is that the latest rumors cite these GTX 1660 at some point in the middle of next month. in February to be specific (we speak of the 15th day being specific), it has even been said that they would be launched shortly after for sale the Radeon VII (February 7).
These GPUs do not arrive to compete with this card of AMD, but they can hog similarly headlines, removing a little prominence to the reviews and data, that surely they are offered.
Let’s start with what will be the most powerful version of the three, the GTX 1660 Ti. which would get a new chip called TU116-400 with 1536 CUDA Cores at a base speed of 1500 MHz and a boost of 1770 MHz. without RT or TC. 96 TMUs and 6 GB of GDDR6 at 6 GHz with a 192-bit bus.
It would follow the GTX 1660 6 GB. which would carry a trimmed TU116-300 with 1280 CUDA Cores at a base frequency of 1530 MHz with a boost to 1785 MHz. also without RT and TC, but with 80 TMUs and 6 GB of GDDR5 to 4000 MHz sharing the same 192-bit bus.
Finally, the GTX 1660 3 GB. which would share TU116-300 with same characteristics as its big sister, but that would see its memory reduced to 3 GB of GDDR5 at the same speed.
The performances would be pretty close to the RTX 206 0, as it boasts a power of 6.45 TFLOPs. while the GTX 1660 Ti is estimated to be around 5.44 TFLOPs and the two versions of GTX 1660 on the 4.57 TFLOPs respectively.
The prices certainly would be the best of these cards, which, although still rumors and purely speculative, make us dream about $ 279 for the GTX 1660 Ti. so other versions of this card should have an even more competitive price and they would enter the direct price war with AMD for the first time in a long time.
