Should I buy an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super?

The RTX 3080 may be a phenomenal GPU, but it's still an incredibly expensive card. If your budget is a lot tighter, should you be eyeing up the GeForce GTX 1660 Super instead? And if yes, what sort of cash should you be looking at?

With Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday weekend imminent, you'll soon find yourself checking whether you've budgeted for a system upgrade, and if you're gaming at 1080p, then there's a lot to like about this value-oriented card. If the price is right, it can potentially offer the kind of bang for your buck that Ampere simply can't right now.

We are waiting on new cards from AMD and the rest of Nvidia's Ampere stack should make an appearance either at the end of this year, or at the start of the next. Even so they're all going to be more-expensive offerings—we don't expect to see any challengers for budget graphics cards any time soon.

What is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super?

GeForce GTX 1660 Super Specs

Release date - October 2019
GPU - Turing TU116
Lithography - 12nm
CUDA cores - 1,408
Base clock - 1,530 MHz
Boost clock - 1785 MHz
Memory capacity - 6GB GDDR6
Launch price - $229

The Nvidia GTX 1660 Super is the best 16-series card in Nvidia's Turing line-up, being ever so slightly slower (3-5 percent) than the GTX 1660 Ti, but offering much better bang for your buck in the process. With 6GB of GDDR6, it is well-equipped to handle the games of tomorrow as well. 

You're going to be able to run most games at Ultra settings and still hit smooth frame rates at 1080p. You may even be able to drive a 1440p panel with this card if you're ok turning down some of the more exacting settings. 

What are the alternatives to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super?

This end of the graphics card market is packed with great value GPUs, and if your budget can stretch a little further, then the AMD Radeon 5600 XT is a worthy consideration. That card is going to be much more capable of driving a 1440p if that's what you've got in mind.

Alternatively if you want to get in on the ray tracing game, then the RTX 2060 super is the most affordable way of doing that, although even now such cards certainly are not cheap. We are expecting the RTX 3060 to drop at some point too, so it's probably worth holding off if this is your goal. 

Should I buy the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super and at what price?

The big graphics cards released this year have all been at the top end of the market, which means that not a lot has changed at this more-affordable level. In that context the 1660 Super is still an incredible value proposition if you're looking to game at 1080p with the setting maxed, or close to. It's still a card definitely worth buying. 

As for the price, various GTX 1660 Super cards can be picked up for around $240 (which is slightly more than they launched at), although stock is still tight, so you may need to shop around a bit for specific models. Prices have been as low as $220 over the last year, so anything close to that would make sense. We don't imagine they'll hit $200 even at the height of the sales though—if they do, grab one.

NVIDIA is expanding its GeForceGTX family of graphics cards today, with a pair of new Turing-based GPUs. As their branding suggests, the new GeForce GTX 1660 Super and GeForce GTX 1650 Super sit above their “non-Super” branded counterparts in NVIDIA’s line-up, but a notch below GeForce GTX Ti variants. It is only the GeForce GTX 1660 Super that is arriving on store shelves today, however. The GeForce GTX 1650 Super will be arriving at little later in November. NVIDIA is introducing some new driver and GeForce Experience-related features today too, which we will cover in a just bit.

We’ve got a couple of GeForce GTX 1660 Super cards on hand, one from Gigabyteand the other from ASUS. They are both in-house proprietary designs, as are all of the other 1660 Supers due to arrive – NVIDIA is leaving all of the designs up to their board partners this time around. NVIDIA did lay down a reference specification though, which we’ll break-down for you right here...

Specifications & Features

According to NVIDIA’s reference specifications, the GeForce GTX 1660 Super is somewhat of a cross of a standard GTX 1660 and a 1660 Ti. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super has a similar number of CUDAcores and texture units to the GTX 1660, but with GDDR6 memory like the Ti. Note, however, that the GeForce GTX 1660 Super has higher GPU and memory frequencies than the 1660 Ti. The GeForce GTX 1600 Super is also outfitted with faster 14 Gbps GDDR6memory, which results in 336GB/sec of peak bandwidth versus the GTX 1660’s 192GB/sec and the 1660 Ti’s 288.1GB/s. That means in memory bandwidth bound circumstances, the GeForce GTX 1660 Super may outrun the Ti, even though the latter has more GPU compute and texturing resources available.

Both the Gigabyte and ASUS cards we’ll be featuring here stick to NVIDIA’s spec for their memory, but push the GPU base and boost clocks upward to further improve performance. Before we get to the cards though, we should talk about some new features NVIDIA is enabling as well.

New GeForce Software Features In-Bound

Launching alongside the GeForce GTX 1660 Super are some enhanced image sharpening and scaling features, integrated support for ReShade filters into GeForce Experience, and an expansion of NVIDIA’s Ultra Low Latency Mode, which will now work with G-SYNC displays.

nvidia image sharpening

The Image Sharpening post-processing filter that was released with NVIDIA Freestyle a little while back has now been added directly into the driver control panel, along with some controls for fine tuning its output. The Image Sharpening tool will offer per-game profiles, so you can tailor the level of sharpness for each game. The Image Sharpening tool also offers GPU upscaling, which uses your GPU to render at a lower resolution and then scale the output to the display’s native resolution to improve performance. The Image Sharpening tool supports all DirectX 9/11/12 games, though NVIDIA tells us Vulkanand OpenGLsupport is coming soon in a future driver update.

nvidia reshade

NVIDIA is also integrating ReShade post-processing shaders into GeForce Experience and making them accessible via Freestyle or Ansel. For those unfamiliar, ReShade is an open-source, post-processing injector for games and video software developed by Crosier. ReShade gives users the ability to access both frame color and depth information and apply virtually any combination of shaders and effects. It is not available with some competitive games, however. Here’s exactly how NVIDIA has set things up...

  • Freestyle Support: The original 14 filters included in the Game Ready Driver are supported for all games. The officially supported ReShade filters are available on non-competitive games, but only a subset are available on competitive games. Custom ReShade filters are available on non-competitive games, but not available on competitive games.

  • Ansel Support: With developer integrated Ansel titles in which the game is paused, users are able to use all ReShade filters. For non-developer integrated Ansel titles, we offer support for over 30 filters.
There is a matrix of which filters are supported with which games available here.

NVIDIA is also enabling Ultra-Low Latency Mode support for G-SYNC displays, with the Game Ready drivers that will be launching with GeForce GTX 1660 Super, so that gamers with these panels can enjoy the smooth, tear-free animation provided by G-SYNC, along with lower latency, even though V-SYNC is enabled.

A Tale Of Two GeForce GTX 1660 Supers

As mentioned, we have two GeForce GTX 1660 Super cards to show you here, specifically the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB OC and the ASUS Dual GeForce GTX 1660 Super EVO OC. Gigabyte's up first...

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB OC

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB OC looks much like a handful of other GPUs from the company that feature the Windforce 3X cooler design, but with a customized PCB for the TU116. The PCB used on this card is longer than the ASUS offering, as you’ll see in a moment, but the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB OC is thinner. This card requires only two slots, while the ASUS card is 2.7 slots wide.

Gigabyte goosed the boost clock for the GPU to 1,860MHz – the reference spec calls for 1,785MHz. The 6GB of GDDR6 memory on the card operates at 14Gbps, however.

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB OC also features customizable RGBlighting, which can be controlled via Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion tool. Over and above tweaking the color, the lighting on the card can be set to a number of different modes – like blinking, cycling, solid, etc. There are a couple of LEDs tucked away near the power connectors on the card, to indicate whether power from the PSU is connected and functioning properly as well.

Gigabyte’s Windforce 3X cooler features three 80mm fans, with ribbed fan blades to add rigidity and reduce noise. And those fans spin in alternate directions to minimize turbulence and maximize air-flow through the heatsink’s fins. Speaking of the heatsink, there is a heat-plate under the assembly that makes contact with the card’s VRM and the memory, along with a larger array of thin-fins, linked together via composite heat pipes and a copper heat plate, which makes direct contact with the GPU. The overall design is only 2-slots wide, which is nice to see in era where more and more cards essentially require 3 slots locations.

The outputs on the GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB OC consist of a trio of full-sized DisplayPorts (v1.4) in addition to an HDMI port (2.0b). And there is a single 8-pin power connector on the card.

ASUS Dual GeForce GTX 1660 Super EVO OC

The ASUS Dual GeForce GTX 1660 Super EVO OC has a shorter PCB than the Gigabyte card, with a thicker cooler, but it too has higher GPU clocks than NVIDIA’s recommend specifications. There are actually two mode of operation available, a game mode that jacks-up the GPU base clock to 1,530MHz and the boost clock to 1,830MHz and an OC mode that takes that boost clock to 1,860MHz (we tested the card in OC mode). The 6GB of on-board GDDR6 memory runs at an effective data rate of 14Gbs.

The cooler on the card features a pair of axial fans, with some subtle design tweaks to improve performance. The hub on the fans are slightly smaller than usual, which allows the fan blades to be a bit longer. And there is a ring that runs around the blades to add some rigidity and reportedly increase downward air pressure.

The heatsink underneath those fans is outfitted with a pair of copper heat-pipes, sandwiched between a large array of aluminum thin-fins. Those heat-pipes are flattened in the base and make direct contact with the GPU as well; ASUS calls this feature ‘DirectCU II’.

There is a bit of subtle RGBlighting on the Asus Dual GeForce GTX 1660 Super EVO OC too. That ‘slash’ between the logos and branding on the top of the card lights up and can be customized via Asus’ included software.

asus 1660 super back

The outputs on the Asus Dual GeForce GTX 1660 Super EVO OC are somewhat different than most other recently-released GPUs. The card features one DisplayPort, one HDMI port, and a DVI port. There is a single 8-pin power connector on-board as well.

We should note that both Gigabyte and ASUS have an array of GeForce GTX 1660 Super cards coming down the pipeline, with varied designs and clock speeds. These are but two cards in what will be an extensive line-up.

Now, let’s see how they perform...

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super is a fantastic card for budget gamers. It builds on the GTX 1660 to take the power up a notch. Yet, it offers that boost in performance while still staying in the budget graphics card range that makes a card like this so attractive. Essentially, you don’t have to spend much more for that extra bit of performance.

Finding that sweet spot of solid 1080p gaming for a reasonable price is not the easiest task for budget gamers. Most of the GPUs available these days are just too pricey. That’s where the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super comes in. With its improved speed and video memory compared to the original 1660, it’s the perfect card for anyone building or taking their budget gaming PC to the next level.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super stands somewhere between the GTX 1660 and GTX 1660 Ti in terms of performance and price. As such, it’s a welcome part of the Nvidia Turing line up. Considering what it offers in terms of overall value, it might just be the best graphics card for you.

Price and availability

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super is available today, starting at $229 (about £180, AU$330). This puts the GTX 1660 Super above the original GTX 1660 by just $10 (about £8, AU$15). But, with the faster GDDR6 memory, you're getting a significant boost in performance for that slight price increase. 

Plus, at this price point it kind of pushes the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti out of relevance. You can get similar performance with the GTX 1660 Super, but for $50 (about £40, AU$70) less. A few months ago, we would have recommended the GTX 1660 Ti without even giving a second thought, but with the GTX 1660 Super, that card doesn't really have a reason to exist anymore. 

Features and chipset

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super is based on the same TU116 GPU as both the GTX 1660 and the GTX 1660 Ti, but has the same 1,408 CUDA cores as the original 1660.  The big difference over the original graphics card is the bump up to GDDR6 video memory, resulting in a boost in memory speed from 8Gbps to 14Gbps – that's just as fast as the VRAM in the massively powerful RTX 2080 Ti. 

This bump up to GDDR6 goes a long way to bridging the gap between the GTX 1660 and the GTX 1660 Ti, but it doesn't quite go all the way. 

And, it's also important to note that this GPU doesn't have the RT and Tensor cores that the RTX 20-series of Turing graphics cards have. This means that while you can technically enable ray tracing, it's going to turn whatever game you try to enable it on into a slideshow – more so than it does on any other graphics card. During our testing, we accidentally left ray tracing on in Metro Exodus, and even the menu was nigh-unusable. 

But, really, at the end of the day you can't expect a graphics card in this weight class to compete with graphics cards that cost twice as much. The GTX 1660 doesn't have RT cores, nor does the GTX 1660 Ti, so it only makes sense for the GTX 1660 Super to be limited here. 

One thing you should be aware of is that the ports are a bit limited on the GeForce GTX 1660 Super. We tested the EVGA GTX 1660 Super SC Ultra, and it's limited to DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort. 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. 

Finally, if you do pick this graphics card up, you will need external power to make it run, in this case an 8-pin PCIe power connector. This means that the GTX 1660 Super does draw 127.4W alone in the most taxing situations, so you should make sure you have at least a 500W power supply.

Frankly, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super is one hell of a graphics card, especially compared to its counterparts. In Time Spy, the GTX 1660 Super was about 5% slower than the GTX 1660 Ti that costs significantly more, and was a whopping 14% faster than the GTX 1660 that it essentially replaces. In Fire Strike, the difference was even more narrow – its just 2% slower than the GTX 1660 Ti. 

These performance wins continued over into gaming, too. In Metro Exodus at 1080p, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super averaged 41 frames per second (fps), compared to the 38 scored by the vanilla GTX 1660 and the 44 scored by the 1660 Ti. That might look like a marginal performance difference, but it still matters.
