Ever since late last year, rumors about a Turing GPU without any ray tracing capabilities have been swirling. Some say it will feature GDDR6 memory on a 192 bit bus, while others claim the "Geforce GTX 1660 TI" will feature a TU116 GPU that's based on different silicon than the RTX 2060.

Now, HardOCP's sources tell us that the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will launch on February 15, with an MSRP of $279. The GTX 1660 will launch in early March at $229, while the GTX 1650 will go on sale for $179 in late March. Additionally, Nvidia will continue to supply the 1050 TI to retailers, and its price will drop to keep it competitive. The exact launch prices are still in flux, and any performance figures that show up on the web need to be taken with a grain of salt until independent testers like us get the cards in our labs. But if Nvidia's RTX lineup is too pricey for you, and if you're having trouble finding GTX 10 series cards in stock at major retailers, some cheaper alternatives from Nvidia should be here soon.
