NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti falls just short of the GTX Titan X in FFXV benchmark, to be priced at US$279 MSRP
We've seen the NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti first rear its head in a leaked AOTS benchmark last month. We've also seen a snapshot of the TU116 GPU core just a few days ago. Now, famed leakster TUM_APISAK has tweeted a screenshot of Final Fantasy XV benchmark scores, which lists the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU and the scores seem to be just short of a 'Maxwell' Titan X.
The reference to the GTX 1660 Ti now seems to be removed in the original database but from the screenshot, we see the GTX 1660 Ti scoring 5000 points — just short of the 5025 points scored by the Titan X (Maxwell). The GTX 1660 Ti is expected to replace the GTX 1070 (4954 points) and not the GTX 1070 Ti (5627 points). For perspective, the AMD Radeon VII is not too far away from the 1660 Ti at 5283 points.
The GTX 1660 Ti will be a non-RT Turing part with 1536 CUDA cores and 6 GB GDDR6 192-bit VRAM. The success of the card as a competent mid-range gaming solution depends a lot on the pricing, which seems to be a wee-bit on the higher side at US$279 for not much of a performance difference from the 'Pascal' GTX 1070.
Of course, the FFXV benchmark is not really a proper tool to assess performance across GPUs, but it does give us some sense of perspective. Also, we might get to see improved performance numbers with final drivers as we near closer to launch date on February 22.
