Tron’s investment of $100 million in its Tron Arcade could be deemed as a good investment, since a lot of gaming, entertainment firms and developers are attracted to the Tron blockchain through it.

The current addition is OxGames, an investment firm based in Cyprus that helps in the development of games. Tron blockchain is one of the fastest blockchains with high scalability which is the reason for their choice.

In a tweet, Tron Arcade wrote:

“The 0xGames team has now set its sights on using TRON’s technology to improve their decentralized gaming experiences.”

Commenting on this development, CEO of OxGames, Sergey Kopov said that:

“Apps based on blockchain that could boast really high popularity haven’t been released yet. What we’ve seen over the recent months is that trading and mining enjoyed less demand due to the cryptocurrencies’ downward trends, however, decentralized games have certainly been on the rise.

What you need to know about the rumored Nvidia GTX 1660 and GTX 1660 Ti

Based on rumors, some people expected a GTX 1160, but that became dead tales as Nvidia announced at its press conference at CES 2019 the RTX 2060. Nevertheless, that has sparked up other stories about a 1660 and a 1660 Ti.

This might be true as with more significant competition from AMD’s aging Polaris RX 500 GPUs, Nvidia’s are pushed to replace its last-generation GTX 1060 and other entry-level GPUs.

Nvidia’s next-generation of graphics cards lean toward a market segment above their predecessors which turns out to be a mutual aspect. The GTX 1660 can be close in competences to a GTX 1070, as the new RTX 2060 outdo the GTX 1070 Ti and explicitly, a GTX 1060 appearing similar to a speculated GTX 1650, etc.

Many stories going around tells that, the performance of GTX 1660 might be weaker than that of the RTX 2060 and if the rumors of it prices are correct then, a card that is 25% faster than a GTX 1060 would make a lot of sense.

Videocardz’s assumed performance figures supports this notion, although as limited to the notoriously difficult-to-compare Ashes of the Singularity benchmark, it seems not a solid stand to hold all the graphics cards.

It is quite clear that Nvidia’s GTX 16-series will be designed to canter AMD’s existing RX 500 series if Nvidia don not put RTX cards below that of the RTX 2060 and everything that Navi may be able to do. In any case, we are anticipating a similar performance to ensure the GTX 1660 Ti is still a workable substitute.

In spite of reports from the latter part of 2018, which proposed an argue of CES 2019 for a new-generation of non-RTX Turing graphics cards, yet, the said date has past and nothing happened. Therefore, we look to what’s to come. According to HardOCP’s sources, the GTX 1660 Ti will be launched on February 15 this year, priced at $279. They likewise trust that the rumored GTX 1660 will make a big appearance toward the beginning of March with a cost of $229 and after a $179 GTX 1650 later that month. GTX 1660 is expected to be priced well below that a $349 floor on the RTX 2060

Anyway, a $279 bodes well as that sets the 1660 Ti well within the price range of the AMD RX 590 which is the best mid-range card AMD currently offers. That additionally prevents Nvidia from quickly taking out its residual overstock of GTX 1060s, caused by the so-called, “crypto-hangover” from 2017’s major shortages.
