The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is pretty much a given now, there have been numerous leaks over the past few weeks.
The latest is multiple Russian websites listing the cards, though at the moment there is no pricing on the pages.
The launch of the new card makes some sense, the RTX range of cards are great, but the entry price point has shot up in comparison to previous generations. There will always be a large market in the affordable to
A lot of the previous leaks have been confirmed by these new listings. This GPU will indeed feature 6GB of GDDR6 memory, but potentially clocked at a slightly slower 12Gbps memory clock.
The reference speeds of the GTX 1660 Ti also seem to sit between 1,500MHz and 1,770MHz. Lastly, the graphics card is supposedly listed to include 1,536 CUDA cores and 96 texture units.
The new card will lack the Ray Tracing and DLSS features that the RTX range introduces and for many gamers this is welcome news and it is something that is not needed on a lower end card.
There is a good chance this new card will offer similar performance to the GTX1070 but that is speculation at the moment.
Older rumours have suggested that Nvidia's GTX 1660 Ti will launch in mid-February for a price tag of $279(about £215) and that a lower-end GTX 1660 will launch in March for around $229.
