Nvidia unveils GTX 1650 and GTX 1660 Super

Nvidia has revealed Super variants of its entry-level gaming cards, the GeForce GTX 1650 and GTX 1660.

The company first introduced the Super branding for improved editions of its high-performance RTX line-up.

The GeForce GTX 16 Series cards are intended for mainstream players looking for solid performance in 1080p gaming.

Hardware improvements

The GTX 1650 Super boasts more cores, higher base and boost clock speeds, and faster GDDR6 VRAM than the previous version.

The GTX 1660 Super keeps the same core count and clock speeds as the base model but adds higher-bandwidth GDDR6 memory.

With the upgrade to GDDR6, memory speeds are increased from 8Gbps to 12Gbps in the GTX 1650 Super and 14Gbps in the GTX 1660 Super.

Performance increases

Nvidia said the GTX 1660 Super will offer around double the performance of a GTX 1060 and a 50% performance increase over the GTX 1660.

Early benchmark tests of the GTX 1660 Super by TechRadar showed a performance increase of 15% in 3DMark Fire Strike compared to the GTX 1660.

The GTX 1660 Super is priced at $229 and is available now.

The GTX 1650 Super will be released in the third week of November, with pricing to be revealed.
