Starting off with the SUPER Edition releases of RTX 2060 – RTX 2070 & 2080. Which featured VRAM Upgrades along with memory frequency boost.
*NVIDIA released the all new Geforce GTX 1660 Super – while it is surely a stunning news, there’s more to it than meets the eye.The release was kind of confusing as it looked like a light refresh like the GTX 1660 Ti replaces the 1660 with more cuda cores and higher base and boost clocks out of the box.
*Here, the GTX 1660 Super still has the same 6GB VRAM – but this time the memory type is upgraded to GDDR6 instead of GDDR5 on the GTX 1660 With changes to the data rate which is now 14Gbps, while it is 8Gbps on the GTX 1660 and memory bandwidth updated from 192GB/sec to 336 GB/sec Which makes It higher than the GTX 1660Ti and sub-par with the RTX 2060.
*Increase in bandwidth is surely an significant improvement but how much it affects performance is tough to imagine.Though NVIDIA suggested that the VRAM change will provide marginal improvement of 10-20% increase over the GTX 1660 .
For example here is the benchmark comparing GTX 1660 Super GTX 1660 and GTX 1060.
While GTX 1660 was revision to the original GTX 1060 this isn’t true for the GTX 1660 Super and it is surely the biggest upgrade to the super series in terms to price to performance ratio.Well if you’re planning to buy GTX 1660 Or GTX 1660 Super – we’re giving away one NVIDIA GeForce Tshirts to each and everyone who buys an GTX 1660 Or GTX 1660 Super.
