Dell Ends up Leaking Mobile GTX 1660 Ti Trying to Refute RTX 2050 "Typo"

Dell inadvertently confirmed that a mobile version of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics processor is in the works and coming to one of its G5 15 laptop models. The best part? The company was refuting the leak of another unannounced product, the "RTX 2050. " Calling it a typo, the company in a pop-up message for its G5 15 variant configurator. Apparently there are two main variants of this notebook, one with USB-C that has Thunderbolt, USB 3.1, and DisplayPort wiring; and another variant with just USB-C with USB 3.1 and DisplayPort minus Thunderbolt.

The company originally mentioned that variants with RTX 2060 and above get Thunderbolt, while those with "RTX 2050" only get USB 3.1 and DisplayPort out of their USB-C ports. In its correction, the company replaced "RTX 2050" with "GTX 1660 Ti." What the webmasters don't know is that mobile GTX 1660 Ti is unannounced, and it's unlikely that Dell is using a desktop GTX 1660 Ti on a notebook of this form-factor (this isn't one of those Eurocom-made desktop-replacement monstrosities).

The moniker RTX2050 may have been only a placeholder until the name was officially designated.
Releasing an entry level RTX card would have eaten in to the market space of similarly priced Nvidia GTX cards, so it's a no brainer to bin that idea and market only the one card.

Rtx 2050? In ray tracing it's the best cuz you get a lot of time in-between frames to admire the graphics~

*Grump Alert*

Eurocom at best puts on stickers and/or better cooling paste. Their laptops are still just clevo barebones.

Also dissapointed they drop thunderbolt for lower-end cards.

Still, at least now we might have seen what a "rtx2050" would be: a gtx 1660 ti with raytracing added back in.

What's with all this glueing nowadays?

Yeah I would not read too much for that. Remember Lenovo leaked gtx 1160 before any RTX card and that ended up about nothing.

Dell laptops are on pre-order too. So what are you upset about? That they did not mention "your" country? You didn't either. With English language sites if you want to add something constructive.

Maybe targeted resolution is HD. Yay, 768p RTX on...

...Will be interesting to see how nvidia is restricting those. gtx1660ti should be awful close to RTX 2060 due to higher clocks, if they are with the same TDP.

Well there you go lol - that is indeed what it was initially planned to be.

Nvidia is now selling xx50-class GPU's for xx60 Ti prices. Hahaha it's just so sad...

Given that this is the most power efficient / best performance per watt GPU.. perhaps ever? it's a perfect match up for laptops, especially given how capable it is at 1080/1440p. I'm willing to bet they can yet dial down the power usage for the mobile form factor while keeping the vast majority of the chips performance. Laptop makers would be fools to not offer it.
