The rumour mill is indicating there are two, possibly three variants of the Nvidia GTX 1660. These will supposedly be officially announced on the 22nd of February.

The top of the line Ti model has 1536 CUDA cores, 1.5GHz base clock boosting to 1.77GHz and 6Gb of GDDR6 memory with a 192 bit interface. There seem to be some benchmarks floating around for it putting it very close to a 1070.

The second model is the non-Ti variant with 1280 CUDA cores, 1.55GHz base clock boosting to 1.785GHz and 6Gb of GDDR5 memory with a 192 bit interface.

The possible 3rd model is a 3Gb version of the non-Ti but not much is known about it.

The Ti variant has been spotted in retail packaging from EVGA using a 2.75 slot width cooler with a single fan. Palit has one with a 2 slot width cooler also single fan. There was also a Galax branded one. All seem to be short cards.

Here's a picture of a custom 1660 Ti on this website.
And the website where there is some more info.

Update (11/02/2019): While you are reading this, Videocardz has posted more images of a few more custom models coming in from EVGA and Palit. The specific model is the EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XC (Black) and the Palit GeForce GTX 1660 Ti StormX. The EVGA cards come in a triple slot design with a seriously beefy heatsink and single fan cooler while the Palit variant comes in a dual-slot single fan design. The cards are said to launch officially on 22nd of February around the price points I previously mentioned below.

Saw them on Newegg today, several flavors around the $300 price point. The specs area is still missing a lot of detail on the one I looked at.

Interesting that it’s got an 8 pin power connector but the GTX 1060 had a 6 pin one. They’re both rated at 120 watts. Judging by the 3 slot cooler EVGA put on theirs I expect they get rather hot, or maybe they overclocked it a bit too much.

There doesn’t seem to be any mention of the non-Ti card, I expect they will come out later.

AMD meanwhile has dropped the price of the Vega 56 to compete, so if you’re in the market for Vega 56 cards now is the time to get them.

This is annoying, my main rig has a 1060 3Gb, which while fine for SETI, is not quite enough for my gaming.

So recently I was thinking of upgrading to a 1060 6Gb, then I see this!

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B07NXVKDLW/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

Just really out of my price range but very tempting!!!

I gave in and ordered a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB Boost Graphics Card for £278.60 ($363.67 - €320.65) from a firm in Bradford, seemed like a good price.

Due here Tuesday.

I saw 2 benchmark reviews of the GTX 1660Ti and the Vega 56 and the 1660Ti beat the Vega hands down. Also, if I remember correctly, the Vega 56 gets really hot and crashed in 2 benchmarks. The RTX 2060 was the only card to beat the GTX 1660Ti. I believe the GTX 1060 (Ti maybe) was the 4th card used. The Vega 56 beat it once, then was 4th in all other benchmarks, except the 2 that it crashed.

Have a great day! :)

The articles I have read seem to think a gtx 1070 would be competitive (in performance) with the Gtx 1660.

I also thought I read a benchmark article that said that some of it's benchmarking results were inconsistent with other results (spike in performance).
I will stop procrastinating tomorrow.

Yes, more or less, a 1660ti is on par with a 1070 for games performance.

The EVGA 1660TI card tested was running stock reference clocks. It is however rated at 130W TDP budget which is 10W more than reference by having a higher power limit. The 3 slot cooler is the just the outcome for producing a short form card for mini cases. It has the same surface area as the standard 2 slot, two fan cards.

It seems EVGA will have three versions of the 1660Ti according to their website.

The XC and XC Black have the 3 slot cooler with a single fan. XC Black boosts to 1770 MHz and the XC boosts to 1845 MHz. Both have 6 power phases.

The XC Ultra is longer with a dual slot cooler and dual fans. The XC Ultra boosts to 1860 MHz and has 8 power phases.

Nice, over here there are a few available on Amazon, one called the Phoenix from Asus looks good, it's $284.99 right now, but I have a car to fix on the 26th and 20 of the home's electrical plugs to replace, maybe in a few years or maybe not, I'll see when I get there.

People at GPUGRID tell me their application can't make use of Turing and Volta processors. But what is Volta? I knew only Maxwell, Pascal, and Turing.

I believe that was the Titan V
Quote from Wikipedia
The first graphics card to use it was the datacentre Tesla V100,... It has also been used in the Quadro GV100 and Titan V. There were no mainstream GeForce graphics cards based on Volta. Volta was succeeded by the Turing architecture.
