Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super Review

That initial budget plan graphics card was the response to individuals who were trying to find a graphics card under 250 dollars or quid that might deal with 1080p video gaming at high settings, without needing to catch console-like efficiency.

This bump as much as GDDR6 goes a long method to bridging the space between the GTX 1660 and the GTX 1660 Ti, but it doesn’t rather go all the method.

You can’t anticipate a graphics card in this weight class to contend with graphics cards that cost two times as much.

If you do select this graphics card up, you will need external power to make it run, in this case, an 8-pin PCIe power port.

A month later on, we got the basic 1660, and we had absolutely nothing bad to state about it, not even anything from another negative place. 1660 was an excellent worth offering from Nvidia, and it entirely erased the GTX 1060 series together with the RX 580 and 590, though the 1660 Ti looked after the 590.

To match the worth of the RX 590, the brand-new GTX 1660 Super might need to provide 1660 Ti-like efficiency.

On the other hand, we have 2 GTX 1660 Super designs, the MSI Video Gaming X and Gigabyte Video Gaming OC, and both provide the precise very same efficiency, normally running at 1965 MHz.

At $240, it might still be the ideal option for a lot of, but anything more than that, and you might argue highly for the RX 590 at $200.


When we initially saw the requirements for the GTX 1660 Super, we didn’t understand what to make from it. We also saw a lot of gains in the area of 7-13%, which is how we showed up at a 10% enhancement on average. For a simple $10 additional over the base 1660, we see this as a rewarding upgrade.

As anticipated, the efficiency uplift isn’t universal, though we saw adequate gains for this brand-new GPU to get the ‘Super ‘ name.

When compared to the AMD competitors, the GTX 1660 Super is an excellent bit quicker than the Radeon RX 590, beating it total by a 13% margin. The Radeon’s appeal is on prices, and that will figure out which method you need to go. Then we’d acquire it over a $200 RX 590, and that was most likely their intent all along if Nvidia does provide the 1660 Super at $230.
