It will be November 29th when the NVIDIA GTX 1660 Super arrives, which only changes the memories and will have a price of 229 dollars.

NVIDIA Makes GTX 1660​ 

During the last weeks we have talked a lot about the GTX 1660 Super. This new NVIDIA graphics card is intended for the entry-level range and will be the most powerful if Ray Tracing. This model will hit the market next October 29th and will have a base price of 229 dollars. Everything suggests that we will not see model assembler, directly we will see custom models.


The Turing architecture is divided into two families. We have the GTX 16 Series that lack RT Cores and Tensor Cores, therefore, does not support Ray Tracing. For those who want Ray Tracing there are the GTX 20 Series, which have RT Cores and Tensor Cores. The company has clearly differentiated two families, according to Ray Tracing.

This new graphics card has silicon TU116-300 which has 1 408 CUDA Cores. This graphics card works at 1 530MHz and will reach 1 785MHz in Boost mode. So far the data is the same as the current GTX 1660, it doesn't change anything. The change comes in the memories, going from 6GB GDDR5 @ 8Gbps to 6GB @ 14Gbps of the GTX 1660 Super. It has a 192bits bus and a 336GB/s bandwidth.


It increases only 10 dollars the price of the graph with the change of the memory. The performance improvement should not be excessive, perhaps 5% at best. Those who already have a GTX 1660, changing it is silly, but those who want a powerful gaming solution for 1080p, have in this graph a great ally.


We'll have to wait a few days to see how this graphics card performs, but we don't expect much. The positive thing is that the refried ones don't arrive renamed as a new family, as it was done by everyone until now.
