NVIDIA Announces New GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER and 1650 SUPER Graphics Cards

This Tuesday (29) NVIDIA presented two new video cards: GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER and GeForce 1650 SUPER. The first model is the one that received more prominence from the manufacturer, being considered the successor to the GTX 1060, a best-selling GPU.

The company’s goal is to ensure more performance for those who play very popular titles today that are not necessarily the most demanding graphically, such as Fortnite, PUBG and Apex Legends.

To give you an idea of ​​the evolution, the GTX 1660 SUPER is up to 20% faster than the traditional GTX 1660 and surpasses 1.5x even the previous generation (GTX 1060 6 GB). Both cards have a series of features that make performance even more optimized. One of the secrets lies in the Turing architecture, which allows simultaneous execution of integers and floating point, a unified memory architecture and turbocharged performance thanks to Adaptive Shading.

In addition, the memories have been upgraded to the GDDR6 standard: the GTX 1660 Super has 6 GB and 14 Gbps rate against 4 GB and 12 Gbps for the 1650 SUPER. The cards are guaranteed in 1440p and 1080p configurations, respectively, and have clocks of almost 1.8 GHz, with easy overclocking and support for GeForce Experience.

Even more complete driver

NVIDIA took the opportunity to confirm its new Game Ready Driver, a configuration standard with support for hundreds of AAA titles. It includes four new gaming features: ReShade, NULL, Enhanced Customizable Image Sharpening and Turing encoders.

ReShade guarantees hundreds of filters compatible with NVIDIA Freestyle or Ansel, with the active participation of the modder community. The NVIDIA Ultra Low Latency (NULL) is a standard that now supports the G-SYNC, allowing visuals free of disruptions on the screen provided and fast response time.

Image-Sharpening is a filter that has now been incorporated into the NVIDIA Control Panel for faster performance and support for games with DirectX, from versions 9 to 12. Finally, the Turing Encoder (NVENC) is a technology of hardware designed for those who transmit on platforms like Twitch and Mixer. It guarantees professional-level image quality and maximum game performance during gameplay, including joint use with applications such as XSplit.


NVIDIA said that the cards will arrive “soon” to Brazil by partner manufacturers. In the US, the GTX 1660 Super costs $ 229. The 1650 SUPER hits stores outside late November, with speculation that it will sell for $ 179.
