The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER underlines its value for money in latest gaming benchmark
The GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER has reared its head again, following on from a Final Fantasy XV benchmark listing posted earlier this week. To recap, the GTX 1660 SUPER currently looks set to be a GTX 1660 but with GDDR6 VRAM. According to information published by Videocardz, the GTX 1660 SUPER will run on the same TU116-300 GPU as its sibling, along with also having the same volume of CUDA cores. The two cards will share identical base clock and boost clock speeds too. However, the GDDR6 VRAM of the GTX 1660 SUPER will run at 14 Gbps, giving it a higher memory bandwidth than even the GTX 1660 Ti.
A new Ashes of the Singularity benchmark listing underlines how close the performance of the GTX 1660 SUPER looks to be the GTX 1660 Ti. While not as close as the gap in the Final Fantasy XV benchmark on which we reported earlier this week, the GTX 1660 SUPER scored just 8% less than the GTX 1660 Ti in the Crazy preset benchmark. By contrast, the regular GTX 1660 Ti outscores the regular GTX 1660 by around 23%.
It is worth keeping that GTX 1660 SUPER cards are expected to retail for US$229, approximately 20% less than their GTX 1660 Ti counterparts. Moreover, the GTX 1660 SUPER should only cost around 5% more than the regular GTX 1660, while probably offering at least 10% better performance. Videocardz and comparable early benchmarks about RTX 20 SUPER cards were on the money, but we would still exercise caution before reviewers publish multiple benchmark results. NVIDIA is expected to announce the GTX 1660 SUPER on October 29.
