They'd just call the non-rt capable card GTX 2060 if they even plan to release one.

Didn't Huang make fun of the "wrong" 1100 series name though?

Notebook only perhaps?

The Turing chips so far aren't really very portable friendly and it'd avoid nasty duplication on the desktop.

Multiple, apparent, errors referring to a "1660" on that page.

They can call it whatever they want, as long as the new cards provide a decent jump in performance in the $200-300 segment. It's been far too long since we've seen a performance uplift at this price point.

The proposition is that they'll produce a 2060 with the ray tracing stuff included and a simpler/smaller chip without that.
Given how much the 2070 struggles to produce good frame rates with ray tracing, I can't see the point in trying to shoehorn it in to the 2060. You'd probably need to run it at 720p to get anything acceptable.

So different names needed.
They haven't had problems reusing the same name in the past, even though it was a different product. Both the 1050 and 1060 got all manner of different versions of cards with very different performance characteristics that would be utterly confusing for consumers.

$200-300 lol. 2060 will be in 300 to 400 range. And considering you can get a 1070Ti for $400 please don't expect any performance jump in this segment,only expect a price jump.

I wonder if they will be releasing a 2050ti
I'm sure they will. 1060 like performance without any power connectors sounds great but price would probably be $200 so basically worse perf per dollar than the current deals on 570 and 580 cards that too six to 8 months from now. Pretty terrible right?

I think we can read the 2060 as existing from the various solid seeming rumours. It's reaching a bit perhaps but trains to exist.

Useful for various forms of development work I'd guess - maybe mainly for this even.

The tensor cores might well be worth it for DLSS if trying to run it at 4k.

The tray tracing might get 1080/30 for some games - indy stuff or maybe strategy/adventure games etc.

Still, if they do release an equivalent speed chip with everything striped out it'll target cheaper & lower TDP, and yes likely sell more to consumers.

Yea that does sound pretty terrible..

Doubt it will be so cheap for the 1160 or whatever it is called. It will be a long while for low profile models to be release anytime soon. Let hope the do not limit the features again like having continuously fan run while normal models are silent when not needed. Cannot wait to see the LP models of this card in 2021-2022!

I said in the other thread back in August,

You know what? This feels weird. I think Nvidia might release an 1100 series with GTX naming still...

Go ahead, pat me on the head...I mean back, and tell me congra-ju-lay-shawns.

I thought 1060 performing at 980 level was a really nice jump in that segment.

I think the problem (or why all of that went under-appreciated) was that due to the mining boom, the $300 segment actually spiked well above $300 for a long period of time, whereas historically prices would have come down quite a lot. I remember when I was considering getting a 4 GB 470 for $130 and decided to wait a few more months since I figured it would probably come down to around $100 which is what I felt was worth spending for it.

I probably should have bought it at $130, but only because shortly after that I could have turned around and sold it for well over twice that amount, maybe even closer to triple. The prices have come back down, but even now you still see those same cards selling above that price all of this time later. The 1060 didn't quite hit the same levels of stupidity in terms of price differences, but it still got swept up in it all the same.

Well, the 1060 DID get known for being a bang-for-buck, as well as a decent performance-per-watt option, for mining Etherium, once a CUDAMiner was developed.

I doubt the 1160 is a real thing, it would feel horribly out of place in NV's naming scheme and basically be "instantly out of date" thanks to the 20xx series naming. I mean they might have a sub 2060 card but they're not going to call it the 1160.

NV already has GTX/GT/MX naming schemes to fall back on for the non-RTX branded stuff.

I think it would be weird to see a GTX 1160 and an RTX 2060. I would rather see a GTX 2060 with no RT.

What I hope to see is no more cut down XX60 cards. I don't want to see a 3GB version.

How about a 1.5GB model to hit a lower price point?
