NVIDIA has introduced the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, a new gaming GPU that delivers a big step up in performance and power efficiency for today’s most popular games. It is available now worldwide starting at $279.
Based on the 12th generation Turing GPU architecture, the GTX 1660 Ti takes advantage of all of Turing’s shader innovations to deliver 2x the TOPS of the previous-generation Pascal architecture. It supports concurrent floating point and integer operations, a unified cache architecture with 3x the L1 cache, and turbocharged performance using adaptive shading technology.
1.4x More Power Efficient Than Pascal
The Turing architecture delivers 1.5x instructions per clock and 1.4x the power efficiency of Pascal, which previously set the standard for power-efficient GPUs. As a result, with a power envelope of only 120 watts, the GTX 1660 Ti delivers the best performance per watt of any GPU in its class.
120 Frames per Second in Competitive Games
The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti outperforms prior-generation GPUs and excels in modern games with complex shaders. It is up to 1.5x faster than the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB and allows gamers to experience 120 frames per second at 1080p in popular online games such as Fortnite, PUBG and Apex Legends.
The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti features 1,536 CUDA cores, 6GB of the new GDDR6 memory running at 12Gbps and a boost clock of almost 1.8 GHz, which can be easily overclocked for further performance.
With more than two-thirds of current gamers still playing on GPUs that only have the performance — or lower — of a GTX 960-class GPU that came out in 2014, the GTX 1660 Ti delivers up to 3x performance, making it an excellent and cost-effective upgrade for those who want to enjoy dramatically faster frame rates in their favorite titles.
The GTX 1660 Ti also includes GeForce Experience, an application that makes PC gaming more accessible and provides unique, easy-to-use in-game features such as:
- NVIDIA Highlights — which automatically captures the best gaming moments. More than 35 games already support Highlights, including Metro Exodus, Fortnite, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, War Thunder, Shadow of Tomb Raider, Ring of Elysium, Escape from Tarkov, Hitman 2, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Hunt: Showdown, Final Fantasy XV and Tekken 7.
- NVIDIA Ansel — which lets gamers take stunning in-game photos. More than 70 games already support Ansel, including Metro Exodus, Battlefield V, Hitman 2, Shadow of Tomb Raider, For Honor, Star Wars: Battlefront II and Final Fantasy XV. Gamers can share their favorite photos and participate in monthly photo contests on Shot with GeForce.
- NVIDIA Freestyle — which lets gamers customize their games’ appearance with post-processing technology. The latest filters can convert gameplay or photos into an oil painting or a watercolor, or deliver an appearance that is right out of a movie or a retro 1980’s look.
