Nvidia releases GTX 1660 SUPER, GTX 1650 SUPER to launch on November 22
Nvidia has given the GeForce GTX 16-series graphics cards a “SUPER” treatment by expanding it with the new GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER and GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER.
Nvidia has added support for both the cards with a new driver release that brings a significant number of features like ReShade Filters, Improved Customizable Image Sharpening, Nvidia Ultra-Low Latency Mode for G-Sync Displays, and Turing Encoder for Gaming and Broadcasting.
Nvidia’s press release claims that “the pair [of new Super cards] delivers up to 2X the performance of the prior generation GTX 10-series GPUs and up to 50-percent more performance over the original GTX 16-series.”
THE GTX 1660 SUPER
A successor to the GTX 1660, the GTX 1660 SUPER is based on Nvidia’s TU116-300 graphics chip. The GTX 1660 SUPER features a 6GB of GDDR6 memory at 14 Gbps, which has increased the bandwidth from 192.1 GB/s to 331 GB/s (a 75% improvement over the GeForce GTX 1660’s 8 Gbps 192 GB/s GDDR5 VRAM).
Further, the GTX 1660 SUPER is designed for high-fidelity 1920×1080 gaming. It is up to 1.5x faster than a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, and is significantly faster than older, still-popular GPUs like the GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
“The GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER is up to 20% faster than the original GTX 1660 and up to 1.5X faster than the previous-generation GTX 1060 6GB. Powered by the award-winning NVIDIA Turing architecture and ultra-fast GDDR6 memory, it’s a supercharger for today’s most popular games. Time to gear up and get SUPER.”
The new GPU comes with 1408 CUDA cores along with a base and boost clock of 1530 MHz and 1785 MHz respectively.
The GTX 1660 SUPER is launching at $229 in the U.S. and is available through its partners including Asus, Gigabyte, Colorful, MSI, Zotac, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Innovision 3D, Palit, and PNY.
THE GTX 1650 SUPER
The GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER offers entry-level gamers on a limited budget a significant boost in performance and access to our ecosystem of critically acclaimed Nvidia technology.
Based on Nvidia’s TU116 graphics processor, the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER comes with a faster 4GB of GDDR6 memory onboard at 12Gbps. Further, the core clocks of the GPU have increased to 1530 MHz base and 1725 MHz boost, which is quite significant. The card also comes with bumped CUDA cores of 1,280 (compared to the original’s 896) along with a peak bandwidth of 192GB/s.
“The GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER is up to 50% faster than the original GTX 1650 and up to 2X faster than the previous-generation GTX 1050. Powered by the award-winning NVIDIA Turing™ architecture and ultra-fast GDDR6 memory, it’s a supercharger for today’s most popular games. Time to gear up and get SUPER.”
While the pricing of the GeForce GTX 1650 Super has not been revealed yet, the cards with this GPU will be available for sale from November 22nd.
