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!
3DMark sure does have some interesting impressions sometimes. Despite the fact that the RX 590 sat at the bottom of twenty-one out of twenty-three charts, it somehow managed to place higher than that in both of the Fire Strike tests. Things shake up in the DirectX 12 test, reflecting expected scaling, at least up to the 2060 SUPER, since our real-world testing dictates that the 5700 XT leads most often.
In VRMark, the 1660 SUPER doesn’t manage to overtake the Ti, but it sure does come close. More importantly, it keeps ahead of the 1660, especially with the Cyan test. Unfortunately, the target frame rate for the Blue test is 110 (it’s 90 for Cyan), so all of these GPUs are still off the mark.
Superposition helps us wrap up our results, giving us similar scaling as seen throughout the testing. The 1660 SUPER overall places close to the Ti, and seems to justify its $10 premium over the GTX 1660 quite well.
