NVIDIA has revealed the GTX 1660 and 1650 Super confirming the recent rumors. The Super variants will offer up to 50% more performance boost as compared to the current-gen cards and up to 2X more performance compared to the 10-series cards. They will also feature many of NVIDIAs gaming-specific features for a better experience.
The GTX 1660 and the 1650 Super are both based on the turing architecture. Both now feature GDDR6 memory, which is a huge step up from the non-super variants. The 1660 Super will feature 14GB/s while the 1650 Super 12GB/s memory. Moreover, both will also include boost clocks close to 1.8GHz. This means that the 1650 Super is a substantial upgrade over the GTX 1650. The 1660 Super has the exact same specs as the GTX 1660 except the memory. Compared to the 1660Ti, the 1650 Super has the same memory and boost-clock specs while the 1660 SUper pulls further ahead.
Both also include NVIDIA’s game-specific features:
- ReShade: It injects post-processing in games to make way for lively shaders. It is supported by a wide modding community and is easy to apply.
- NULL mode: NVIDIA Ultra-Low Latency is supported on G-SYNC certified monitors and helps reduce screen tear in games.
- The NVIDIA Control Panel gives the user control over pretty much all aspects of a game. You can use sharpening sliders to determine the best fit between performance and quality.
- Both the Super variants include the Turing Encoder (NVENC) that supports streaming applications like OBS and XSplit. With support for more integrations, it makes streaming a smoother experience.
