NVIDIA’s GTX 1660 Gets The Super Treatment
The Card Everyone Expected Finally Offers A Sneaked Peek
Thanks to sharp eyes at The Inquirer and Twitter user momomo_us who spotted Chinese manufacturer Maxsun announcing a GTX 1660 Super Terminator 6G we can finally take a peek at the last of the Super cards we have been waiting on. It will come as no surprise that it’s performance will fall between the GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti, the hardware specified included 1,408 CUDA cores with 6GB of GDDR6 with a 192-bit bus. The Base clock speed will be 1400MHz with Boost of up to a possible 1,785MHz.
In comparison, the GTX 1660 Ti sports 1536 CUDA cores with essentially the same memory interface and GPU clock as this GTX 1660 Super, while the base GTX 1660 sports 1408 CUDA cores and 6GB of GDDR5. No word on pricing yet, but we should be hearing something soon.
Anyone looking to build a gaming machine with a limited budget but wants access to Nvidia's Turing architecture without forking out for a card from the GeForce RTX 20-series, then the GTX 1660 Super could be up for contention.
