Rumour suggests Nvidia could be planning a GTX 1060Ti

Over the last few weeks, we have been hearing a lot about the impending launch of the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 Pascal graphics cards from Nvidia. However, we haven’t heard much about GPUs coming later down the line, until today, as a new report has revealed some potential information about the GTX 1060.

This particular leak comes from the same person that revealed the first GP104 die image a short while ago. According to the leaker (via Videocardz), the GTX 1060 will feature a GP104-150 GPU with 6GB of GDDR5 memory. This would make it a more cut down version than the GP104-200 that is said to feature on the GTX 1070. The GTX 1080 is said to be using a GP104-400 chip.

Interestingly enough, if this latest rumour turns out to be accurate, then it is possible that Nvidia might be planning a new X60 Ti card, as back in the Kepler days, the GTX 660Ti used a GK104 chip, while the GTX 660 used a GK106. So Nvidia could be returning to a similar line-up with Pascal.

It might be too soon to know much about Nvidia’s plans beyond the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, which will reportedly be shown to press as soon as next week, with a public launch scheduled for sometime before the end of May. However, these rumours are interesting to take into account nonetheless.

KitGuru Says: The GTX 660Ti was a very popular card and was an excellent performer for its price at the time. Did any of you own a GTX 660Ti or even a 560Ti? Would you like to see Nvidia bring back the X60 Ti series with Pascal?

    I’ve never really gotten the point of x60 Ti’s. What market does it fill?

  • Si C

    Mainly the 1080p crown who don’t mind running without AA or dropping a couple of settings

    I still use my 560ti, lovely card, enjoyed it for four or five years now.

  • I love the x60ti, I never buy them but if you have an EVGA x60 long enough for them to stop making them and it breaks, BAM! you have yourself a free upgrade to a x60ti or x70 under warranty. I’ve had my GTX 560 ti replaced with a 570 than it broke and they gave me a 660ti… wtf, I was amazed.

    Aka average gamer’s

  • Si C

    Yup

  • davem

    Possibly the cheapest they can build a card that still sneaks into the VR ready power range, it will be significantly cheaper than a x70 so it will expand the market.

  • Mikael74A

    Why not a GTX 1070Ti as well?
