It wasn’t long ago that the Nvidia GTX 2060 was rumored and people had a hard time believing it. However, more confirmation came forward and shortly after the card was launched at CES 2019. The exact same could be said for Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660Ti graphic card as well. The very first rumors regarding this card were first propagated by a Chinese website a couple of months ago, at the time they were not sure what the card would be called but the key factor of the card was said to be the absence of Ray tracing support even though the card would be based on turing architecture.
Turns out that Nvidia Geforce 1660TI is a real graphics card that is currently being manufactured. All the rumors have been put to rest as a benchmark of the card has recently surfaced online. The benchmark in question is a Ashes of the Singularity benchmark that is performed on an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660Ti GPU.

Thanks to videocardz, we finally have the first ever benchmark for the GTX 1660TI GPU. Granted this is a legit benchmark, we still ask you take it with a pinch of salt as the benchmark in question is highly dependent on CPU processing power and may not reflect the true potential of the GPU.
The Turing based GTX 1660TI would feature a TU116 GPU with 1536 CUDA cores paired with 6GB of GDDR6 memory. In the benchmark, the 1660TI managed to score 7400 points which is 1200 points higher than last year’s GTX 1060.

There are also rumors of there being a non-TI version of the graphics card which will also be unveiled alongside 1660TI. These cards will go for a price cheaper than the RTX 2060 which retails for around 350 USD.
