A new report by HardOCP claims that NVIDIA will be releasing a new Turing lineup without the RTCores after all. As per the outlet, these SKUs will be known as the GTX 16 series of graphics cards and will compete with AMD’s budget offerings like the Radeon RX 580, RX 570, etc.
The top-tier GTX 16 series card is supposed to be the GTX 1660 Ti which will be priced at $279 with a release window of 15th Feb. The GPU will pack 1536 CUDA cores, paired with 6GB of GDDR6 memory using a 192-bit bus.
The second card, called the GTX 1660 will drop the GDDR6 memory and lose a few cores to arrive at a fairly lower price of $229. The GTX 1660 is speculated to hit the market by early March. Lastly, the GTX 1650 is the third card expected to launch by the end of the third quarter. There’s no word on the specs or TDP, but as per HardOCP, the GTX 1650 will be available for a rather affordable price of $179.
NVIDIA is going to release something for the budget market soon, but the details are still pretty murky. However, there’s no doubt that we’ll soon see cheaper variants of the Turing architecture without the RTCores.
