Nvidia Puts GeForce GTX To Rest As GTX 16 Series Support Ends

Expert Verified By

End of An Era!

The GeForce GTX 16 series is now expected to reach its discontinuation phase, at which point new cards based on the non-RTX Turing architecture will not be manufactured. After the remaining GTX 16 stock runs out, no additional cards with the Turing architecture will be shipped to partners, distributors, retailers, or gamers.

The most recent product roadmap reportedly reveals that the series has been discontinued and won’t be restocked. According to reports on the Chinese Board Channel Forums, Nvidia has made plans to abandon the last generation of its GeForce GTX series.

GTX 1660 Super Graphics Card

A variety of graphics cards are part of the GeForce GTX 16 family, including the GTX 1660 Ti, GTX 1660, GTX 1650 Ti, GTX 1650 SUPER, and GTX 1630. These graphics cards are widely used in the mainstream and low-end market segments, providing a reasonable and respectable gaming experience for the price.

The news comes after speculations from December of last year that Nvidia planned to completely abandon its popular mid-range series, which did not feature DLSS acceleration or ray tracing.

Additionally, those cards were the final versions of the GTX series since Nvidia has now switched completely to the RTX branding. Therefore, this means that decades of legacy have been put to rest as the GTX branding reaches the end of its life.

However, Nvidia will continue releasing new drivers for these graphics cards.  A number of vendors are currently offering great discounts on the Nvidia GeForce GTX 16 series family of graphics cards, and AIB partners will keep selling these cards until their stock runs out.

Hence, the RTX 20 and 30 series will become the entry-level model in the Nvidia range. This includes the new 6 GB variant of GeForce RTX 3060 for desktop and GeForce RTX 2050 for mobile gaming.
