So what is this, 1070 performance for 1070ti pricing.


SLI Voodoo 2 - > GeForce4 MX 420 -> GF 6600GT -> GF 6800GT -> GF 8800Ultra -> AMD 4870 -> AMD 4890 -> CF AMD 5820 -> CF AMD 6850 -> CF AMD 7970 -> SLI GF 680 -> SLI GF 780 -> CF AMD 290X -> GF 980ti -> SLI GF 980ti -> GF 1080ti -> SLI GF 1080ti -> <- RTX 2080ti (DOA/Refunded)

Sure if you call $300 a "budget" card (my speculation on the price)

Well, they jumped from the 10 series with Pascal to the 20 series with Turing, so this one, to avoid the RTX moniker, is being put in a lower series. It could have been the 11 series, but 11 doesn't sound as nice or distinctive and is closer to Pascal than Turing in number, so 16, which resonates with the x60 midrange numbering, it is.

1536 CUDA cores is 80% of a RTX 2060 (which is roughly a GTX 1070 Ti). It's probably a GTX 1070 level of performance, a card released to combat the RX 590/RX580.

You're probably right on almost everything. Nvdia didn't release any card this generation with a decent price, and considering that they expect the 1060 to be sold out in "several weeks" and that the RX 590 is winning on performance, this 1660 Ti without RTX will slot right into the $250 price bracket to compete with the AMD card. I don't think that they will have the gall to price it at $299, especially as the AMD card is already on the market, so they will look good after all the RTX drama by displacing it at a lower price. As to the performance, it will probably land lower than the 1070 still, maybe up to it when overclocked.

a $200-$250 msrp would make a nice budget option.

They probably didnt anticipate it to be this bad. So in a way their over confident lead to them unable to come out a plan B.

Most likely we will see them having a backup plan in 7nm GPUs. I am probably guessing this is one way to split their lineup


GX100/102: CUDA + RT + TENSOR cores - Ultra premium pricing
GX104/106/107: CUDA cores only (Purely rasterization) - High end to budget pricing


The GX name is just a placeholder based on past Geforce codename, it could be TX or anything that NV seem fit to name it.

Just like how they split their compute Tesla chip from Geforce, RTX will end up going down the same path thanks to its extreme cost to make. Hence all these will be limited to the "BIG" die family.

I dont think that they expected higher rtx sales at that prices.
What about they rised the price so high to sell the remaining pascal cards and after that they can lower the price?

This is Nvidia we're talking about and they know they're the big game in town. Businesses by and large have the mentality that if a customer wants something they'll buy it whatever it's priced at - and that if the customer wants more performance they'll pay more for it. I work in manufacturing doing product design and frequently hear this from the higher ups.

This sounds to me like it's aimed at the upcoming NAVI ~$300 offering, not the RX590.

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.

It's close to impossible. It's 80% of a RTX 2080 in CUDA cores , same memory size and bus with no RTX features.

Truth is I believe Nvidia is concerned. Sales are hurt due to extreme pricing, it's been out a fair amount of time now and there's still what..... 2 to 3 games that actually utilise RTX. That's damn right appalling. Probably one of the most over
When HDR AA feature was brand new only literally the Titan class GPU were able to use that feature at acceptable performance, and only a few games supported the feature.

That's completely normal, only Nvidia bashers stating this meaningless argument.
