1660 vs 1660 super reddit DEFAULT


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.

GTX 1660 vs. GTX 1660 Super vs. GTX 1660 Ti vs. RTX 2060

Nvidia’s midrange graphics lineup is far more robust in 2020 than it was this time last year, with a much broader array of options for gamers on a budget. Being spoiled for choice does have its own drawbacks though, namely that picking the right graphics card for you is much harder.

To see how these cards stack up against one another, we’ve pitted the GTX 1660 against the GTX 1660 Super, GTX 1660 Ti, and the RTX 2060, comparing their specs and features. Which will offer the most bang for the buck?

Availability and pricing

All four of the cards we’re comparing are available for purchase right now and in a staggering array of options. The RTX 2060 is the most straightforward of the three with Nvidia’s Founders Edition acting as a firm baseline. When in stock it starts at $300 for the KO edition, while overclocked cards or those with fancy cooling solutions can cost up to $370

There are no Founders Editions for the GTX 1660 Ti and 1660 Super, but those cards debuted with a bewildering number of third-party alternatives. The former sells for between $280 and $320, while the latter starts at $230, with the most expensive versions priced at around $270. The standard 1660 is the most affordable with a starting price of $220, but as you’ll see below, that’s a hard sell considering how far it falls behind the competitively priced Super version.

There are tons to choose from when it comes to all of these Turing cards, offering different clock speeds, cooling options, and lighting features. Some are a better value than others, but the cheapest offer the best return on investment in terms of performance, as we’ll see below.


Acer Predator XB3 Gaming Monitor review

Nvidia has made a concerted effort to stagger its graphics card performance and the RTX 2060, GTX 1660 Ti, and 1660 occupy distinct price and performance brackets. A look at their raw specifications betrays the real-world performance of these cards as much almost as benchmarks have been able to do.

RTX 2060GTX 1660 TiGTX 1660 SuperGTX 1660
CUDA Cores1,9201,5361,4081,408
RT Cores30000
Tensor Cores240000

Memory Speed12Gbps12Gbps14Gbps8Gbps
Memory Bus Width192-bit192-bit192-bit192-bit
Memory Bandwidth336GBps288 GBps336GBps192GBps

Based on the specifications alone we can surmise that the most powerful of the three cards is the RTX 2060, followed by the GTX 1660 Ti, then GTX 1660 Super, with the GTX 1660 trailing in the rear. The steps from each card are a little different, however. While clock speeds are relatively comparable across all four cards (and actually a little higher on the lower-end cards), the drop in CUDA cores from the RTX 2060 to the 1660 Ti is the main differentiating factor in performance. While the 1660 does take a step down in CUDA cores too, its use of GDDR5 memory leads to a 33 percent reduction in memory bandwidth.

That’s also where the GTX 1660 Super makes up its lower CUDA core count. With faster memory, it is much closer in performance to the 1660 Ti than its other specifications might suggest.

These differences play out like you might expect in games, although there is some variation depending on your desired quality settings and resolution. In all tests the RTX 2060 comes out well ahead of its GTX Turing counterparts, offering performance comparable to a GTX 1070 Ti, if not sometimes higher. The 1660 Ti follows up with between 15 and 25 percent lower frame rates, though it does beat important AMD competitors like the RX 590. It even poses a real challenge to the Vega 56 in some cases.

The GTX 1660 Super is typically within only a few frames per second of the 1660 Ti, making it arguably the most competitive buy among the 1660s. Especially since its price is so close to that of the stock 1660.

The GTX 1660 has a strong showing against a number of cards, providing a 10-20 percent improvement over the GTX 1060 6GB in most cases. It too challenges or exceeds the RX 590 and 580 in a number of games at both 1080p and 1440p, but falls behind the 1660 Ti by between 10 and 25 percent depending on the game being tested.

Ray tracing and DLSS

Metro Exodus Review

Although the RTX 2060 has hardware-accelerated ray tracing support, the other cards do support it too, albeit in a limited capacity. Thanks to a driver update from Nvidia, all GTX cards from the 16 and 10-series can render ray tracing in-game, but without hardware acceleration using RT cores, performance isn’t great, even on high-end last-gen cards like the GTX 1080 Ti.

The difficulty with ray-traced lighting effects is that they are exceedingly GPU intensive to render. That’s why the RT cores are required and make such a difference on RTX cards; especially the higher-end ones. If you want to play ray traced games at comfortable frame rates, the RTX 2060 is the only card to opt for in this case, though it will still be limited to 1080p in most games. The GTX 16-series cards will let you get a look at what ray tracing looks like, but they won’t be able to play many ray-traced games at anything close to comfortable frame rates.

With that in mind, it’s unfortunate that deep learning super sampling support (DLSS) is restricted to RTX graphics cards. It requires Tensor cores to run and the GTX 1660, 1660 Super, and 1660 Ti just don’t have them, so they will not be able to use DLSS. The RTX 2060 can, and that could give it a further advantage when it comes to ray tracing, although the highly limited number of supported games right now makes it somewhat negligible. Furthermore, our experience of both features combined hasn’t been stellar so far.

You get what you pay for

GTX 1660 Super

If $300 – $350 is too high of a price tag for you, then the GTX 1660 Super is the best value option of the bunch. The 1660 Ti is only a worthwhile investment if you can find it at a comparable cost. The level of performance is so close between the two cards that the Super, with its typical $50 to $100 savings, is a much better buy. It almost invalidates the RX 590 from AMD, although we occasionally see some heavily discounted RX 590s, which makes it an attractive alternative.

While the GTX 1660 is a solid choice, we wouldn’t put it at the top of our list. We think that for the same price, the AMD offers superior performance. That said, the GTX 1660 has vastly improved from the previous GTX 1060 model. The RX 580 and RX 590 are both viable alternatives. They can also be notably cheaper in some cases, especially when you factor in AMD’s incredible game bundles. This is where the availability and packaging options can make or break a deal. Packages are almost always a smarter option (and a better deal) than standalone cards. It’s important to note that availability (and retailer sales) can also factor into the equation and impact pricing. If you are looking for something a little more affordable with a similar speed, check out the RX 5500 XT.

These days, we don’t recommend springing for the factory overclocked versions. Factory overclocked items and stock items currently function equally, so overclocked items no longer boast the superiority they did in past generations. The price difference between factory overclocked items and the 1660 Super is too close to make them worth it.

Overall, the RTX 2060 is the best buy of the three because of its impressive performance capabilities. It has also received the most five-star reviews. It’s the kind of quality product you’ll have to pay a pretty penny for, and we know that it might be out of your reach if you’re on a modest budget. It still blows the Turing product competition out of the water and provides far better value for the price. Over time, it’s worth the investment for the RTX 2060 — even if you have to spend some time saving up to buy it.

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. 

Alan has spent far too much of his life in World of Warcraft and playing Magic the Gathering to be a normal human being, which is why he has retreated to the warm embrace of gaming hardware.
