Nvidia has introduced a new mid-range GPU – the GeFotce GTX 1660 Ti that is intended for gamers looking for an affordable option for reviving their older gaming system’s performance. According to the company the new GPU is 3x faster than a GTX 960, 1.5x faster than a GTX 1060, and offers comparable performance to a GTX 1070. So if it is comparable in terms of performance to GTX 1070, then why release a new GPU? Well, the new GTX 1660 Ti is built on the latest Turing architecture (still not named RTX and 2xxx series, but GTX and 1xxx series), which debuted with the top GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPUs. It also features the new GDDR6 video memory with a 192-bit wide memory bus at jus 120W of TDP. With the new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti you can get an up to date GPU that is more affordable than the GTX 1070 with recommended prices starting at $279 USD.

Although the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is intended for gamers with a more limited budgets looking for upgrading their aging mid-range gaming graphics, it might turn out to be an interesting choice for mining as well. If it manages to offer good performance for crypto mining similar or even better than that of the older GTX 1070 with the lower power usage and price range it might spark some interest. Of course for that to happen we need to see some movement in the profitability of GPU mining following some good and strong signs of crypto market recovery, prior to that the new GPU might not be deemed as very attractive by miners. Still we need to see some crypto miming results to get a good idea on what to expect in terms of actual performance…
