It appears that the first benchmarks for the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce GTX1660Ti have been leaked online. These first tests come from Final Fantasy XV and Ashes of the Singularity and show this upcoming GPU performing as fast as the NVIDIA GTX 1070 and 25% faster than the GTX1060.
Now I’d like to make it crystal clear that these benchmarks do not 100% reflect the in-game performance gains that you can expect from this new graphics card. As such, we’ll have to wait for the first gaming benchmarks until we can draw any conclusions. Still, they will give you a vague idea of how this new GPU will perform.
From what we know so far, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX1660Ti will release on February 22nd, will be based on the Turing architecture, will not support ray tracing and will be priced at $279 MSRP.
So far we’ve seen numerous third-party partners preparing their own custom models for this upcoming GPU so yes; this is a real GPU. Surprisingly enough, NVIDIA hasn’t officially announced anything yet, so my guess is that the GTX1660Ti will be stealthily launched on February 22nd (with reviews most likely coming out on launch day… or at the very least one-two days prior to it).
Kudos to our reader ‘Metal Messiah’ for bringing these to our attention!
