Nvidia may split its gaming GPU lineup into RTX and GTX series, including a new GTX 1160 Ti, according to reports. Videocardz suggests that a new card, the 1160 Ti, may launch around the same time as the rumored RTX 2060.

Videocardz points to a Chinese site called 
Expreview, which is only available behind a password, so we can't directly verify it, so you should take this news with big grains of salt. It suggests that the new GPU may be called the 1660 Ti, though the Videocardz tipster suggests 1160 is the branding.

According to the reports, the new series will still use Nvidia's Turing GPUs. The sites suggest that the RTX 2060 will use a TU106-200 GPU, while the GTX 1160 will have a TU116. The marketing also mentions "Turing Shaders," which would likely Ray Tracing exclusive to the RTX line. 

Additionally, the site says that there will be no RTX 2050, and that entry level cards will all be part of the 11 series.

 

NVIDIA Allegedly Launching GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce GTX 1160 in January – Both RTX (Ray Tracing) and GTX (Non-Ray Tracing) Lineups To Co-Exist

 

It looks like NVIDIA is planning to offer mainstream and entry-level graphics cards in both GeForce RTX and GeForce GTX options. The information comes straight from Videocardz who report that a new mainstream lineup of GPUs is being created that would be labeled under the GeForce GTX 11 series and co-exist with the GeForce RTX 20 series cards.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 To Be The Entry Level Ray Tracing Options – All Non-Ray Tracing Cards Allegedly Being Branded Under the GeForce GTX 11 Series Family

We have been hearing multiple reports for a while that NVIDIA is soon going to introduce their new GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card. Featuring the same TU106 GPU core that is featured on the RTX 2070, the RTX 2060 will feature a slightly cut down core configuration along with 6GB GDDR6 VRAM that will run across a 192-bit bus interface. We are expecting 1920 CUDA cores for the card and an entry-level Ray Tracing performance while being near GTX 1070 Ti in terms of overall performance.

 

Now it is being reported that while the GeForce RTX 2060 launches next month, it would be the entry level Turing RTX options. NVIDIA is allegedly planning to extend their Turing GPUs to the mainstream category but they would be branded under a different family which will continue to use the GeForce GTX label. This would be known as the GeForce 11 series and a continuation from the GeForce 10 series Pascal cards.

While these cards would be based on the Turing architecture, the Ray Tracing cores will be non-existent as the performance wouldn’t be of a suitable caliber to offer such a graphics performance impacting feature such as ray tracing itself. Also, we have seen that Ray Tracing GPUs are generally more expensive to manufacture on the 12nm process node as it makes the die bigger than their predecessors which is something NVIDIA would want to avoid with the sub $250 US graphics cards

The prices I have heard about newer nVidia cards, it's going to be a good thing this.

The 20 series hasn't been too successful. What i feel is that the so called ray-tracing is more of a marketing gimmick than anything useful. With ray tracing ON none of the games perform any better than 10 series counterpart. I have a gtx1070 and will just skip 20 series and see what nvidia brings with the 11 series. Dont have that insane amount of money anyway to purchase a 20 series GPU.
