NVIDIA 16-series GTX models are now available in Nepal. Here, we are discussing the key specs of NVIDIA GTX 1660 Super and GTX 1650 Super, along with the specs, features, and price in Nepal.
NVIDIA GTX 16-series Graphics Cards
Originally, priced at $229, the GTX 1660 Super first hit the market on 22 November 2019. priced at $229. It was accompanied by the cheaper GTX 1650 super.
Talking about the GTX 1660 Super, the graphic card uses 1408 CUDA cores. That’s similar to the GTX 1660 model. Furthermore, their 1530MHz base speed and the 1785MHz boost clock speeds are also the same. Nevertheless, there is a difference between them. The major one being the use of a faster 14Gbps GDDR6 memory on GTX 1660 Super as compared to the GTX 1660 which uses 8Gbps GDDR5. Nvidia also claims that the GTX 1660 Super is 20% faster than the GTX 1660.
However, the GTX 1660 Super still lags behind the GTX 1660 Ti. On paper at least! Now, that might be primarily because it packs more CUDA cores. 1536 to be specific. However, that might not be the case in actuality. That’s because the GTX 1660 Ti is not that faster as the standard GTX 1660. Also, the GTX 1660 Super has a higher clocked memory. Thus, I do not think we will find the correct answer without putting them to test.
Moving on to the GTX 1650 Super, it comes as the extension of the standard GTX 1650. It packs 1280 CUDA cores. More than the 896 cores that the GTX 1650 uses. It also has a higher base clock of 1665MHz and also a higher boost clock of 1485MHz. Furthermore, it comes with 12Gbps GDDR6 memory. However, 4GB is its limitation. Per Nvidia, the upgrades, make the GTX 1650 Super 50% faster than the GTX 1650.
Now, these new graphics cards won’t bring you real-time ray tracing. That’s still limited to the RTX and the RTX Super models only. However, the 1660 Super offers two times better performance than the 10- series cards. Furthermore, these new cards come with the latest Nvidia drivers. This introduces features such as ReShade, Nvidia Ultra Low Latency, Turning Encoder, and many more.
