We have an exclusive first look at GeForce GTX 1660 Ti from MSI.


There are two Ventus models coming, the XS and non-XS. The XS shares the PCB with GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X, which is 4+2 VRM design.

The card features TU116-400 GPU with 1536 CUDA cores and 6GB of GDDR6 memory. This model is the first installment in GTX Turing series, NVIDIA’s offer lacking raytracing features exclusive to RTX series.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will be released on February 22nd. The SKU will be followed by GTX 1660 non-Ti probably next month.


The GPU is not based on TU106 silicon, as speculated. Below is a comparison between “400” variants of the two (TU106 image credit to TPU):
