NVIDIA Readies GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Based on TU116, Sans RTX
It looks like RTX technology won't make it to sub-$250 market segments as the GPUs aren't fast enough to handle real-time raytracing, and it makes little economic sense for NVIDIA to add billions of additional transistors for RT cores. The company is hence carving out a sub-class of "Turing" GPUs under the TU11x ASIC series, which will power new GeForce GTX family SKUs, such as the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, and other GTX 1000-series SKUs. These chips offer "Turing Shaders," which are basically CUDA cores that have the IPC and clock-speeds rivaling existing "Turing" GPUs, but no RTX capabilities. To sweeten the deal, NVIDIA will equip these cards with GDDR6 memory. These GPUs could still have tensor cores which are needed to accelerate DLSS, a feature highly relevant to this market segment.

Please use the following process when submitting overclocking news to Overclock.net:
Use a VERY descriptive title, same as the article's if possible. If the title is literally too long to fit in the proper field of the thread when posting it, then you are free to truncate it to something as close as possible to the original. We simply ask that you do not make up your own title if it can be helped as this is often done to add a side to the story that only the posting member intended, not the article's author (else the source site's editorial staff would have done that for you).
Thank you for informing me sir. Next time, it will be in line with your rules. As for the repost, I checked it multiple times over but I somehow "managed" () to fail to notice the thread was already created. Furthermore, I didn't even notice it was a rumor. God, I was crazy tired, I guess. I beg your pardon.
