GeForce RTX 20 vs GeForce GTX 11

Yesterday I received I tip that NVIDIA is set to launch GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce GTX 1160 mid-January. Today, Chinese website Expreview claims that this might indeed be true.

According to Expreview, this model is called GTX 1660 Ti, but from what I heard it’s just 1160. 

NVIDIA would split branding into GeForce RTX and GeForce GTX series, the former would stick to 20xx naming scheme, while the latter would use 11xx. This is partially what some GPU enthusiasts were expecting months ago.

The new series would still feature Turing GPUs, but their different variants. It is said that GeForce RTX 2060 will feature TU106-200 GPU, while the GeForce GTX 1160 would feature TU116 instead.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti marketing material posted by Expreview mentions ‘Turing Shaders’, instead of ‘Ray Tracing’, which should remain exclusive to RTX series.

More importantly, it is said that there will be no GeForce RTX 2050 model. The mid-range and entry-level models will be part of GeForce 11 series only.
