NVIDIA GTX series is adding a new graphics card named NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti to the bunch. Just like the others in the ‘GTX Ti’ series, will be the successor of the GeForce GTX 1660, which was one of the top-end GPUs of NIVIDA. The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will be powered by 12th Generation Turing Architecture. And according to the company the GTX 1660 Ti is up to 3 times faster than the GTX 960 and 1.5 faster than its predecessor, the GeForce GTX 1660. The newly launched GPU will be priced at $279 (approx. Rs 19,818) and is available to purchase internationally.
The company has promised that it is capable of handling most of the AAA game titles of today. Based on the 12th generation Turning GPU architecture it takes advantage of all the Turing’s shader innovations. It supports concurrent floating points along with integer operations. The Turing architecture used in this GPU is more power efficient and delivers 1.5 times instructions per clock than the previous Pascal architecture.
The newly launched GPU is capable of giving up to 120FPS (frames per second) on most of the modern games. Popular battle royale games like PUBG, Fortnite and Apex Legends run smoothly at 1080p resolution, 120FPS.
The GTX 1660 Ti has 1,536 CUDA cores and has 6GB GDDR6 RAM, which runs at 12Gbps and has a boost clock of almost 1.8 GHz. It is also capable of supporting concurrent floating point and integer operations and has a unified cache architecture with 3 times L1 cache.
Besides the technical specifications of the new NVIDIA GPU it comes with GeForce Experience that is an application capable of making gaming on PC more accessible. With the GeForce Experience the users can access features like NVIDIA Highlights, NVIDIA Ansel and NVIDIA Freestyle.
