Meanwhile, my 7 1080ti mining rig is running 24/7, with great results for the last 5 years, at some point i almost got myself an new 10 000$ asic miner but ended up getting two used antminers l3+ for a decent price.

If it manages to be sold at MSRP. It's actually going to be one of the most solid cards out there.

The issue is managing that, though....

It's not a bad card technologically speaking. It's a 1660 super / 1660 ti with DLSS and Raytracing support. The issue is the price in this ridiculous market. Any other generation this would be a $170 or less GPU and it would be an incredible value and the jump in the budget market to finally make a large leap up from the GTX 1060 / RX 570 / RX 580 group, especially with DLSS making near GTX 1080 performance.

But the market is complete trash right now, and the 1660 ti came out 3 years ago at $280 and the 1660 super about 6 months after at $230....And 3 years later that level of native performance is being sold at the same price.... That's the issue.

Well crypto prices are tumbling, will hopefully mean more units of all models will get into gamers hands.
