So far we have seen numerous leaks on the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, some of them could turn out to be actually true, some were confirmed wrong. But we had never seen any leaked benchmark score for the GTX 1660 Ti, until now.
Twitter User TUM_APISAK spotted the Turing based NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti on the Final Fantasy XV benchmark database and tweeted the screenshot. This benchmark does not always translate to the actual real-life performance, but it does show how GTX 1660 Ti will be very slightly faster than the previous generation GeForce GTX 1070. The database also shows that GTX 1660 Ti will at par with the GeForce TITAN X.
NVIDIA is known to delay the release of final drivers to avoid performance leaks like this. So we can expect the performance to improve once the final drivers are released.
If you look at the table, the GTX 1660 Ti scored 5000 points, that’s 25 less than the GTX TITAN X which scored 5025 points. One thing to note is that the GTX 1660 Ti is clearly meant to replace only the GTX 1070 because GTX 1070 Ti still leads it by 627 points. AMD’s flagship graphics card, the Radeon VII has a lead of just 283 points from the 1660 Ti.
If these leaked benchmarks are to be believed, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti could become quite popular in the mid-range market. It delivers quite decent performance for a mid-range card. The pricing NVIDIA chooses for this will be the absolute key. RTX cards delivered great performance on a PC but didn’t perform as well in the market just because of their high prices.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is going to have 1536 CUDA Cores along with 6 GB of GDDR6 VRAM. It will be based on NVIDIA’s Turing architecture. The card is expected to be officially launched on 22nd February.
