A Launch Worthy Of Baskin-Robbins!
The GTX 1660 SUPER has launched and it comes in an impressive array of flavours, as you can see just below the fold. Sebastian tested out MSI’s take on the base model of the GTX 1660 SUPER with a 1785 MHz Boost Clock and memory date rate 2Gbps higher than the 1660Ti, or almost twice that of the regular GTX 1660. The card comes very close to the 1660Ti but costs a mere $10 more than the base GTX 1660, though it does also produce a hair more more heat, at 125W compared to 120W.
The FPS Review on the other hand tested out the GIGABYTE GTX 1660 SUPER OC 6G with a 1830MHz Boost Clock, with memory specs matching the MSI model and with a current rebate will cost the same as the non-SUPER model! However, with the WINDFORCE 2x cooling system and GIGABYTE’s AORUS Engine software they cranked the power target up to 120%, the GPU voltage and fan up as high as possible and viola, 2061MHz solid.
The effects were immediately noticeable, as you can see in the full review.
Today NVIDIA is announcing and launching the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER. NVIDIA is also announcing (but not launching yet) the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER. The GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER won’t be available until November 22nd. Therefore, today we will focus on the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER.
