Less than a week after MSI’s iterations of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1660 Ti cards were leaked, Gigabyte is now the latest brand to have its cards outed online. Unlike its competitor, it appears that the brand may only have one SKU prepared.
It comes as no surprise the leaked image made its way online via leakster site Videocardz. The model in question seems to just be a Gigabyte OC model, which is essentially the brand’s lowest-tier SKU that doesn’t come with brand of its usual Gaming or AORUS branding.
Much like MSI’s own SKUs, Gigabyte’s own custom-cooled variant of the GTX 1660 Ti will be based on NVIDIA’s current 12nm Turing GPU architecture. The card will have 6GB GDDR6 memory, 1536 CUDA cores, but no RT Cores or Tensors cores. Negating the card’s ability to perform any form of real-time ray-tracing or DLSS like NVIDIA’s more premium GeForce RTX series graphics cards.
Interestingly, the Final Fantasy XV benchmarks shows that the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti’s performance is more or less on par with NVIDIA’s GeForce TITAN X. A card that was released back in 2015, and built around the older Maxwell GPU architecture.
Gigabyte has yet to officially announce the existence of the card, so we do ask that you take this news with a pinch of salt. At least, up until the rumoured 22 February deadline.
