GTX 1660 Super arrives on October 22nd! – If you happen to be aware of AMD launches, you know that the new RX 5300/5400 and 5500 are about to hit the shelves to attack the 'budget' market, where NVIDIA is still queen and lady…
However, it seems no one is sleeping in the GeForce domain! After all, NVIDIA is also preparing a new graphics card to maintain its advantage in this curious market segment.
Welcome to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super! The answer to AMD is ready, and it will arrive on October 22
Therefore, according to the Chinese website ITHome, the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super graphics card will be available on October 22nd. That is, in less than a month! Date that curiously even fell in line with the day that the company likes so much for its releases, a Thursday.
That said, the GTX 1660 Super graphics card should be based on the TU116 GPU, which also already brings the GTX 1660 and GTX 1660 Ti to life. Thus, the number of stream processors should be 1472, so that the graphics card is between the GTX 1660 (1408) and the more equipped GTX 1660 Ti (1536).
However, at the memory level, we must find 4GB or 6GB models of GDDR6 memory.
After all, the GTX 1660 'Normal' uses GDDR5 memory, while the Ti model uses GDDR6 memory. However, according to the latest information, NVIDIA is very likely to decide on the latest and fastest memory to motivate consumers to buy the product. (At the expense of AMD's offer, of course.)
Finally, regarding the price, the site states that the card will hit the market around 1100 Yuan (~ 150 $).
Which makes us think that NVIDIA may adjust this price a little to be able to more effectively rival the new Radeon RX 5500/5600. That should serve as a strong bet from AMD in the low end market.
