Once again, the manufacturer gave a spot by revealing this time the mobile GeForce GTX 1160, which is set to debut alongside the GeForce RTX 2060.
It is difficult to find detailed information about the card in the Lenovo entry, but it confirmed that Nvidia is preparing a really interesting approach to the middle segment. Legion Y530 / Y7000P notebooks will be offered with GTX 1160 cards in 3- and 6-gigabyte versions. Well, maybe the word “interesting” should be replaced with “non-standard”, but one thing is certain – the market will be flooded with many variants and models. I am talking about the division of the Turing architecture into the RTX 20XX and GTX 11XX series, which will be released in many versions. We know this from Gigabyte, who suggested that we will receive as many as six variants of the RTX 2060 card.
In contrast, the GTX 1160 will be based on the Turing architecture, but will not support the Nvidia RTX technology. So this something raises one question – what about Tensor and RT cores? Will these be present on the core or will they give way to more CUDA cores? In the first case, we would probably get some new technology using AI computing, and in the second, an additional injection of “raw power”.
