Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least another year? Nvidia is ending production of almost all mid-range graphics cards.

Nvidia has decided to completely stop the production of several models of video cards of past generations.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least another year?  Nvidia is ending production of almost all mid-range graphics cards.

We are talking about the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2060, GTX 1660 Super and GTX 1660 cards. The source does not have any details, but we already know that there is an RTX 3050 to replace the RTX 2060/2060 Super, but the GTX 1660 cards there are simply no replacements. The source doesn’t mention the GTX 1660 Ti, though, so it’s possible Nvidia is keeping this card alone to close the hole in the sub-$300 segment.

In particular, in Europe now for the GTX 1660/1660 Super/1660 Ti they are asking for about the same money: from about 230-240 euros. At the same time, the cheapest RTX 3050 now costs 300 euros. No more affordable cards will appear in the RTX 30 line, and it’s not worth waiting for cheap RTX 40 cards in the foreseeable future, because even the RTX 4060 is supposedly released only next summer.

For comparison, AMD has a modern Radeon RX 6600 in the sub-$300/Euro segment, which is much more powerful than any GTX 1660, and along with the RTX 3050.

AMD Ryzen 7000 processors have fallen in price in the

AMD Ryzen 7000 processors continue to get cheaper in the US, and from different retailers, and not somewhere in one place. So, prices have decreased on Amazon, and at Microcenter, and on the Newegg site.

AMD Ryzen 7000 processors have fallen in price in the US.  8-core Ryzen 7700X drops $104, top-end 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X drops $210

The best deal on the Ryzen 7 7700X is $345. The processor dropped 104 dollars from the official price. For comparison, for its rival in the face of the Core i7-13700K in the US they ask for $418.

The 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X has fallen in price more – by $ 132: the cost has decreased from the official $ 550 to $ 418. That is, there is just price parity with the Core i7-13700K.

The top 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X dropped $211 from $800 to $589. For the Core i9-13900K in the US, they ask for only a little more – $ 598.

These are prices on the Amazon site, but Microcenter has about the same discounts. At the same time, the Newegg and Microcenter sites have already fallen in price and the latest 65-watt Ryzen 7700 – by $ 10, but nonetheless. Recall that the Ryzen 7000 (without the X index) was presented only in early January.

But the maximum data transfer rates for sequential reading and writing are known – 10 and 9.5 GB / s, respectively. In the picture below, Corsair even compared its current top-end MP600 Pro XT SSD to the MP700. The difference is noticeable.

However, the MP700 will be able to fully realize its high-speed potential only on the latest platforms from AMD (with processor socket AM5) and Intel (based on 600 and 700 series chipsets). The creators talk about the use of 3D TLC NAND memory chips in the SSD and support for NVMe 2.0 M.2.

AMD promised SSDs with PCIe 5.0 support back in November last year, but in fact there are only a few such models on sale.

Obviously, due to its compact size, the cooler’s ability to dissipate heat is seriously limited – it is suitable for cooling Ryzen 7000 processors with a TDP of 65W. The design is a low radiator with two heat pipes and a fan with a diameter of 92 mm. The regular version of the NH-L9a is priced at $45, while the all-black version costs $10 more.
