About this deal

Featuring concurrent execution of floating point and integer operations, adaptive shading technology, and a new unified memory architecture with twice the cache of its predecessor, Turing shaders enable awesome performance increases on today’s games. To set a baseline for how the GTX 1660 Super gains its "super" status, I've charted out how the base specs for the non-Super GPU stack up side-by-side against the Zotac version of the Super.

Testing with The Division 2 sees the 1660 Super land right between the base model 1660 and the Ti version. com and PC Magazine are among the federally registered trademarks of Ziff Davis and may not be used by third parties without explicit permission.This isn't exactly a graphics card that you're going to run 10 displays off of, but we would have liked to see Nvidia drop the DVI port and add in either a second HDMI or maybe even a USB-C port. Sorry VirtualLink hopefuls; you'll have to connect your VR headset the old-fashioned way on this one. The GTX 1660 Super upgrades the original GTX 1660 from GDDR5 memory to GDDR6, while nearly doubling its clock speed from 8Gbps to 14Gbps and increasing its bandwidth from 192GBps to 336GBps. GIGABYTE turns the adjacent fans in the opposite direction, so that the airflow direction between the two fans is the same, reducing the turbulence and enhancing the airflow pressure.

I have to admit, when rumors started circulating several months back of a 'Super' refresh of the 1660 and 1650, I thought they were bunk. For this review, Nvidia shipped me the EVGA GTX 1660 Super Ultra SC, which means it comes with a modest factory overclock. During that period, the card maxed out at 73 degrees C, off a resting idle temperature of 34 degrees C.

As expected, the performance uplift isn't universal, but we saw enough gains for this new GPU to get the 'Super' moniker.
