The new 16 Series cards had been the target of several leaks over the past few months, especially the more robust model, as it was being speculated to come with GDDR6 memory, which aims to give even more speed to the graphics equipment.
The upgrade made the devices have a performance pattern very similar to that performed by “Ti” GPUs, and the similarity in price is close to the practiced. According to the manufacturer’s presentation, the GTX 1660 Super was developed to be a successor to 1060.
In addition, it has a performance 50% higher than its direct predecessor, making the investment interesting for those with the hardware that is considered predecessor. It features new features from Nvidia such as ReShade, Ultra-Low Latency with G-Sync support, and image enhancement for custom sharpening.
Something that will not be accomplished by the GTX 1660 Super is the real-time ray tracing, which is present in the RTX and RTX Super line, making the decision to purchase the video card without this setting which gives the overall better quality for render images be the buyer’s decision.
