A SUPER Sweet Spot? NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER Review

by Rob Williams on November 28, 2019 in Graphics & Displays

NVIDIA’s SUPER series of GeForce cards has reached a total of five, thanks to the recent introduction of two GTX variants. We’re taking a look at the 1660 SUPER here, with a focus on 1080p for the bulk of our testing, and up to 4K for high-FPS esports titles. Let’s see how the extra memory bandwidth is put to use!

We’ve returned to normalcy, which in this case is the 1660 SUPER pulling a fair bit ahead of the non-SUPER, about 10 FPS. While only ahead by 5 FPS, this is one of the higher peak deltas we’ve seen from that card so far, but given the $50 price difference between the two cards, one of them is looking really SUPER at the moment.

The 1660 SUPER continues to leap a good distance ahead of the original 1660, and in this case completely matches the performance of the Ti. It’s an odd result, and one that stuck after retesting both cards right after one another. We wouldn’t be surprised if a retest on another day would give us better scaling.

The Division 2

There’s some nice scaling going on between the three 1660s here, but the 1660 SUPER is the definite best bang-for-the-buck of the group. The Radeon RX 590 deserves a shout-out, as well, since it keeps up to the bottom 1660, but costs a bit less, found right now for around $190~200.
