NVIDIA launched their GeForce GTX 1660 Ti late last week at $279, which makes it the most affordable discrete graphics card based on NVIDIA’s “Turing” architecture so far. The 16-Series from NVIDIA are based on 12 mm “Turing” chips, but these lack RT cores for real-time ray tracing and tensor cores to take advantage of DLSS. NVIDIA is working on two more affordable additions to the GTX 16-Series which will come out in March and April.
So following the GTX 1660 Ti will be the GeForce GTX 1660 (non-Ti), which is said to launch on March 15th 2019. This model is likely to be based on the same “TU116” silicon as the GTX 1660 Ti, but will have fewer CUDA cores and possibly slower or less memory. NVIDIA will price this card $50 cheaper than the GTX 1660 Ti at $229.99.
After the GTX 1660 (non-Ti) you’ll see the GeForce GTX 1650 which is set to release on April 30th 2019 at $179.99, which is $50 cheaper than the GTX 1660. This card is expected to be based on the smaller “TU117” silicon. Both of these launches will more than likely be partner-driven with no reference cards from NVIDIA.
