Nvidia is reportedly working on a GTX 1660 Ti/GTX 1160

Rumours regarding the future of Nvidia's future Turing graphics cards have been running rampant across the web, leaving in its wake a lot of uncertainty regarding graphics card launches after the RTX 2060. 

Expreview (via Videocardz) has reported that Nvidia is working on a graphics card called the GTX 1660 Ti, which will split Nvidia's current generation graphics lineup into GTX 11/16 series and RTX 20 series offerings, with the GTX 11/16 series offering "Turing Shaders" while the RTX 20 series provides support for RTX Ray Tracing.

Videocardz has reported that Nvidia won't be releasing an RTX 2050 series graphics card, opting to release a TU116-based GTX 1160, which is thought to be the same GPU as Expreview's GTX 1660 Ti. It is possible that Nvidia has not finalised the name of this graphics card, or that one or both sources are false. 

If Expreview's information is correct, Nvidia plans to release Turing-based graphics cards without the company's RT cores, leaving Ray Tracing support as a high-end-only feature.

OR both sources are true and nvidia is truely working on a 1160 AND 1660 Ti. Definitely somewhat confusing, but I like the idea of not having to spend huge amounts of dosh for raytracing when I don't necessarily need it.

Is DLSS also done by the RT-Cores or could that/those card/s be supporting DLSS as well? Then this might be a nice addition.Quote

I think the naming scheme is fine, tbh. I just hope these are not totally derped and over priced but I don't think my hope will carry any weight. I still reckon they'll be derped and expensive.Quote

Nvidia has a huge supply of gtx 1060's 3gb and 6gb unsold. They need to get rid of them before opting to create a 2060. The creation of 2060 would absolutely destroy their movement to sell all the remaining gtx 1060.

I would NEVER buy this cards unless it's a bargain (which talking about nvidia, will never occur).

Nvidia just wants to scamm people.Quote

DLSS is done with Tensor cores, not the RT cores.Quote

I wouldn't be surprised if remaining 1060 inventory got a 1160 rebrand/reconfiguration possibly like the 600 series -> 700 series changes. Assuming the RTX2060 is the lower binned version of TU106(given the 2070's a full/perfect implementation), I guess it's also possible they'd want to create an RT-less version of TU106 to get the same traditional shader performance with minimal die space(And therefore cost) and power use, which will presumably eventually also come in both "perfect" and "imperfect" bins, which could be the 1660 Ti with an eventual non-Ti (Using the rumoured TU116 die).Quote
