nvidia-gtx-1660-tiPowered by 12th-Gen Turing Architecture, GTX 1660 Ti up to 3x Faster Than GTX 960, 1.5x Than GTX 1060; Available Today

NVIDIA today introduced the GeForce® GTX® 1660 Ti, a new gaming GPU that delivers a big step up in performance and power efficiency for today’s most popular games. It is available now worldwide starting at $279.

Based on the 12th generation Turing™ GPU architecture, the GTX 1660 Ti takes advantage of all of Turing’s shader innovations to deliver 2x the TOPS of the previous-generation Pascal™ architecture. It supports concurrent floating point and integer operations, a unified cache architecture with 3x the L1 cache, and turbocharged performance using adaptive shading technology.

1.4x More Power Efficient Than Pascal

The Turing architecture delivers 1.5x instructions per clock and 1.4x the power efficiency of Pascal, which previously set the standard for power-efficient GPUs. As a result, with a power envelope of only 120 watts, the GTX 1660 Ti delivers the best performance per watt of any GPU in its class.

120 Frames per Second in Competitive Games

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti outperforms prior-generation GPUs and excels in modern games with complex shaders. It is up to 1.5x faster(1) than the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB and allows gamers to experience 120 frames per second at 1080p in popular online games such as Fortnite, PUBG and Apex Legends.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti features 1,536 CUDA® cores, 6GB of the new GDDR6 memory running at 12Gbps and a boost clock of almost 1.8 GHz, which can be easily overclocked for further performance.

With more than two-thirds of current gamers still playing on GPUs that only have the performance — or lower — of a GTX 960-class GPU that came out in 2014, the GTX 1660 Ti delivers up to 3x performance, making it an excellent and cost-effective upgrade for those who want to enjoy dramatically faster frame rates in their favorite titles.

Availability and Pricing

GeForce GTX 1660 Ti custom boards are available starting today from the world’s leading add-in card providers, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. Pricing starts at $279 and will vary based on partner designs, features and region.

NVIDIA today released GeForce 419.17 WHQL Game Ready drivers. These drivers introduce support for the new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card launched moments earlier. These are also the first “Game Ready” drivers that come with optimization for “Anthem” and “Far Cry: New Dawn.” The drivers also add NVIDIA SLI support for “Far Cry: New Dawn” and “Apex Legends.” NVIDIA also fixed a short list of bugs. Improper decal rendering in “Doom” (2016) and “Doom Eternal” are fixed. “Battlefield V” artifacting when texture filtering is set to “high” in NVIDIA Control Panel. Dynamic Super Resolution not being available for monitors with 4K2K timings has been fixed. NVIDIA also fixed a critical security vulnerability affecting access to GPU performance counters.

You can download the new GeForce 419.17 WHQL Game Ready drivers through GeForce Experience or via GeForce.com.

corsair-dominator-platinum-rgb-ddr4By Hilbert Hagedoorn @ Guru3D

In this article, we review the new RGB series Dominator Platinum RGB DDR4 memory from Corsair. Not only do these puppies look awesome, but they are also properly specced as well in a wide variety of options in frequency, volume and timings for you to choose from. We received a massive 4x8GB DDR4 kit rated 3600MHz CAS 16, so that is 32GB at your disposal for dual and even quad-channel memory configurations. This kit is aimed at the latest Intel platforms, but we’ll have a peek at Ryzen compatibility as well.

asus-tuf-z390-plus-gaming-wi-fi-moboBy Antony Leather @ Bit-Tech

There’s usually a lot of variation in terms of features as you dip down below £200 for an Intel Z-series motherboard, with manufacturers taking quite different approaches to cost cutting. MSI managed a fairly balanced approach with the MAG Z390 Tomahawk, dropping audio and Wi-Fi in favour of a fancy integrated I/O shield, USB 3.1 Type-C ports, plus the full complement of audio outputs. Today we’re looking at ASUS’ similarly-priced TUF Z390-Plus Gaming (Wi-Fi), which takes another very different approach.

antec-torque-midtowerBy Steven Lynch @ Tom’s Hardware

If “normal” isn’t your thing, the Antec Torque might be just what you are looking for. With its open-air design, aluminum alloy construction and superbike styling, it’s is safe to say this chassis will stand out, wherever you put it. It could be the foundation for an impressive high-performance system build, but you’ll need to look past several shortcomings, plus a price that’s much higher than similarly designed alternatives.
