- NVIDIA is working on a new mid-range GPU, say reports.
- The new GPU could be called GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.
- It uses the company's Turing architecture.
NVIDIA has been in the news quite a lot of late. The American technology company launched the much-awaited GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card at CES only a couple of weeks ago, as part of its new ray tracing-enabled GeForce RTX series. It also showcased its DRIVE AutoPilot system, an off-the-shelf self-driving system for cars. Now, there are reports of a new mid-range graphics card from NVIDIA: the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.
Graphics-card news website VideoCardz.com recently reported hearing from a couple of sources that NVIDIA may be working on a mid-range GTX-series graphics card called GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. If a report like this is to be believed, the upcoming card will become the company’s first GTX-series card to use the Turing architecture.

Not belonging to the RTX series—and therefore not supporting ray tracing—the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti should sell for a relatively lower price. But we’ll know if that’s true only when the card comes out. The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is supposedly powered by a 12-nanometre FF TU116 processor, which has 1,536 CUDA cores. Similar to the GeForce RTX 2060, the memory bandwidth is estimated to be 192-bit, and the GDDR6 RAM, 6GB.
Bear in mind that we haven’t got so much as a peep out of NVIDIA about the new graphics card; everything we know so far about the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti comes from reported stories. So, we don’t yet know when NVIDIA plans to launch the new card. When the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti comes out in the market, we expect its performance to be in and around that of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070. Only time will tell if all we predict and speculate is true.
