Nvidia's GTX 1660 Ti is coming; it's hard to deny it at this point. Leak after Leak after Leak has landed, leaving very little up to our imaginations. Now, courtesy of Videocardz, we have our first look at Nvidia's new TU116 core design, as well as MSI's GTX 1660 Ti Ventus XS. 

To our eye, the GTX 1660 Ti appears to offer the same cooler and a similar PCB design as the RTX 2060 Ventus XS (eXtra Small), which makes a lot of sense given the PCB's visible space for eight GDDR6 memory chips, instead of the six that the graphics card uses to achieve its alleged 6GB VRAM capacity.   

The graphics card also uses a GPU core that is smaller than the TU106-400 chip used to create the RTX 2070 and RTX 2060, which makes sense given the GTX 1660 Ti's rumoured CUDA core count and rumoured lack of support for both DLSS and RTX Ray Tracing. The GTX 1660 Ti uses Nvidia's new TU116-400 silicon, assuming that what's pictured below is, in fact, a GTX 1660 Ti. 

Videocardz has reported that the GTX 1660 Ti will launch on February 22nd.

Looking at the PCB, we can see that MSI's GTX 1660 Ti Ventus uses an 8-pin PCIe power connector and sports six memory chips, which seemingly add up to 6GB of GDDR6 memory. We can also see a display output configuration that is undoubtedly three DisplayPorts and a single HDMI 2.0 connection.
