It is reported that Nvidia is expanding its Super series of refreshed GPUs with the new GeForce GTX 1660 Super and GeForce GTX 1650 Super. Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super is positioned between GeForce GTX 1660 and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, while Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super is positioned above GeForce GTX 1650.
Just like their siblings in the GeForce RTX Super series which was announced earlier this year, the new GeForce GTX Super GPUs offer better performance than their non Super counterparts.
GeForce GTX 1660 Super based graphics cards will come with a price tag starting from INR 20500 (US $ 219 in the US). It should be noted that the price is, in fact, lower than the INR 21500 which is the official price of the GeForce GTX 1660 when it was first introduced.
On the other hand, the pricing of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super has not yet been announced but the company confirmed that cards with this GPU will go on sale from 22nd November.
With these two models, there will be no reference design from Nvidia and all cards in the market will feature custom-designed coolers.
Nvidia confirmed that non Super cards will continue to be available at reduced prices. Experts are considering that these cards will go on sale immediately as soon as they are launched because similar products from companies like Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, Zotac, EVGA, Galax, Palit, and others will go on sale from 29th October.
In GeForce GTX 1660 Super, the GPU itself is unchanged but it uses a faster 14 Gbps GDDR6 rather than 8 Gbps GDDR5 memory which results in improved memory bandwidth.
On the other hand, GeForce GTX 1650 Super comes with better specifications than its non Super counterpart which 12 Gbps GDDR6 memory.
The company is claiming up to 1.5x the performance of non Super GeForce GTX 16 series graphics cards and up to 2x the performance of the previous generation GeForce GTX 10The series.
Just a few days ago, the company confirmed that both the new products are based on Turing architecture. The company is also emphasizing that both new GPUs feature its Turing-based NVENC video encoder which will enable higher quality video streaming without impacting performance.
