NVIDIA just released the GTX 1660 Ti graphics card last week, but this is just the beginning of the GTX 16 series, which will soon be followed by GTX 1660 and GTX 1650, which will use the same Turing Core as the GTX 1660 Ti without RT Core and will not support ray tracing and DLSS.

Digitimes has released the release dates and prices for the GTX 1660 and GTX 1650. NVIDIA will release the GTX 1660 on March 15, starting at $229, or about 1,500 yuan, while the GTX 1650 will be released on April 30, starting at $179, or about 1,200 yuan.
If nothing else, GTX 1660 will use TU116 core just like GTX 1660 Ti, but it will definitely be streamlined. It is expected to have only 1280 CUDA units and 192bit/6GB of video memory. However, it is likely not to use GDDR6 video memory, and it may be replaced by GDDR5 or GDDR5X, which should have better performance than the current GTX 1060.
Previously, there was a GPU with SM unit of SM group on GeekBench, which was estimated to be GTX 1650, the number of CUDA units was 896, and the memory capacity was 4GB. It was speculated that the GTX 1650 was only 128bit bit wide. If the GTX 1050 Ti was not intended for external use, its performance would be better than the current GTX 1050 Ti.
After released on April 30th GTX 1650, NVIDIA Turing family will layout and RTX Ti, GTX 1660, 2060, the GTX 1660 GTX 1650 four kind of mid-range graphics will cause great pressure to AMD, AMD also ready, of course, RX Vega 56, RX 590 and RX 580 recently, pricing in 7 nm Navi card before the arrival of AMD graphics market penetration could be further compression.
