Nvidia GTX 1660 graphics card model had limited memory problems, which prevented the GPU from reaching its full potential with its 1408 CUDA cores. Therefore, Nvidia GTX 1660 Super promises to improve framerate by up to 20 percent, without any change in the GTX 1660 GPU core, reports Overclock3D.
GTX 1660 Super still has 1408 CUDA cores, with the same base/boost speeds as the standard GTX 1660 model, meaning that all performance improvements to the Super model come through GDDR6 memory implementation.
The 14Gbps GDDR6 memory upgrade enables up to 75% improvement in total memory bandwidth, enabling the GTX 1660 Super to have better memory performance than the GTX 1660 Ti. Nvidia believes that this memory update is enough to enable the GTX 1660 Super to achieve a 50 percent performance improvement over the GTX 1060.
In addition to the GTX 1660 Super model, Nvidia also introduced the GTX 1650 Super model, which also has GDDR6 memory and uses a newer version of the Nvidia GTX 1660 core. This enables the GTX 1650 Super graphics card to have 1280 CUDA cores (same as the GTX 1060), and enables access to Turing NVENC encoding, an option not available on the GTX 1650.
Nvidia GTX 1660 Super graphics cards are already available at a base price of $229, and will be offered by almost all Nvidia partners. The price for the GTX 1650 Super has not been announced.
