NVIDIA's upcoming "Turing" based GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card could carve itself a value proposition between the $250-300 mark that lets it coexist with both the GTX 1060 6 GB and the $350 RTX 2060, according to leaked "Final Fantasy XV" benchmarks scored by VideoCardz. In these benchmarks, the GTX 1660 Ti was found to perform roughly on par with the previous-generation GTX 1070 (non-Ti), which is plausible given that the 1,536 CUDA cores based on "Turing," architecture, with their higher IPC and higher GPU clocks, are likely to catch up with the 1,920 "Pascal" CUDA cores of the GTX 1070, while 12 Gbps 192-bit GDDR6 serves up more memory bandwidth than 8 Gbps 256-bit GDDR5 (288 GB/s vs. 256 GB/s). The GTX 1070 scores in memory size, with 8 GB of it. NVIDIA is expected to launch the GTX 1660 Ti later this month at USD $279. Unlike the RTX 20-series, these chips lack NVIDIA RTX real-time raytracing technology, and DLSS (deep-learning supersampling).

Are you sure about that? 1660ti is said to have 190 tensor cores

Would be great if they realise cards without the tensor cores for less, say a couple of hundred dollars less.

Oh, and how generous of Huang to let 1070 (how much those cost?) type of performance FOR LESS than 1070, and it hasn't been even 3 years since 1070 was released, eat that, haters!

I'd quite enjoy it being closer to 1070 in price.
But with sales diving (and "mining craze" blaming is an apparent BS in this context) there is only so much money you can squeeze out of customers.

Over priced...

I want 2008 prices again.

eg GTX X60 .. X60TI $300 AU for the full blown product not the 3GB version.

They are still closer to $400 for 1060's 6GB... Which is higher than the launch price.

In other words pull ya head out of your ass nvidia.....

AMD needs to do 2 home runs for that to happen.
Previously, they managed that kind of stuff by being better at new process node, but 7nm is probably the last major jump that we will get in years to come.
So, back to needing miracles.

unfortunally there isn't a cheaper alternative.
btw we also had expensive GPUs a decade, two decades ago, the 6600gt (which was decently priced compare to later GPUs i.e. 7800 at roughly 600$ or a radeon x850 xt that performed much worse at 700$ up to 1k) premium cards were selling for 250-260€, the gtx1060 started at same price range and today we still see it around that number.

If you want 2008 prices, build a time machine and go back to 2008. The rest of us have to deal with this little thing called "inflation".

what are you talking about? I already have faster variants of the GPU, if one of them breaks, I'll upgrade or downgrade. I don't care about the gaming numbers, I use computation capability of the gpu. wah wah wah.

Not without comprises at least.


https://www.in2013dollars.com/2008-dollars-in-2018
$100 in 2008 → $116.63 in 2018
More of a little thing called "price hikes due to lack of competition" with quite a bit of "lame excuses".
This is not only about inflation or lack of competition. The main reason is that manufacturing got more and more difficult and the chips that we have today are bigger than always. They have much tighter tolerances and they are much more complicated to develop, verify, build, etc.

So they're telling me it's gonna be priced the same as 1060 6gb? ~

That will certainly be good, RX570 and 580 undercut GTX1060 and 1050 TI big time and RX590 is a rather overpriced.

Actually you can get Vega 56 for £300 which is only a bit more than a (be optimistic) $280 1660Ti. It will be nearly 10% faster and you also get 3 games worth of $150-180. Vega 56 with the 3 game bundle is by far the best buying option in the mid-high segment IMO.

prices largely depend on the country.
here Vega 56 is slightly more expensive than rtx 2060,which performs on par with Vega 64.I suspect the same situation is mostly prevalent in other countries too.I mean you can find hot deals on all cards from all brands if a retailer offers a hefty discount,but these are for limited time and units. There's rtx 2060 cards being sold at 300 pounds too.

Just bought 2nd hand gtx 1080TI for 390€ to replace rx 570. I'm good for the next 2-3 years according to Ngreedia's willingness to give us zero price performance ratio increase on upper end of market segment after 3 years of waiting. In 3 years time gtx 1080TI, being 5 yo GPU by then, will most probably still offer mid range performance by 2021 standards. That's how little performance increase we're getting for our hard earned bucks... To the point It's getting ridiculous to buy new high end gpus.

Damn thats a good price for the 1080 Ti, congratz, enjoy the card. And yep I 100% agree high end GPUs this gen are just mediocre. I'm keeping my Rx 570 till next year or gonna see what Navi brings personally.

As for 1660Ti it's OK performance but I would like to see this card at or below £249 here. 1660 non Ti with GDDR5 and 6GB I think should be sub 200. Either way RX 590 is going to need a price cut as it simply won't compete with 1660 Ti or hold any value as it is £250 here. 590 for sub 200 with the game bundle and 8GB would be competitive. /mythoughts
