THE Nvidia announced two new video cards this Tuesday (29): the GeForce GTX 1660 Super is a small upgrade over its predecessor, while the GeForce GTX 1650 Super promises 50% more performance than the traditional GTX 1650 thanks to more CUDA cores and faster RAM.
As noted by Engadget, a GTX 1660 Super it is very similar to the GTX 1660 launched in March: it has 1,408 CUDA cores with a base frequency of 1,530 MHz that reach 1,785 MHz in boost. There are 6.6 billion transistors.
The main difference is in memory: there are 6 GB in the GTX 1660 Super, as in the predecessor, but it uses GDDR6 technology instead of GDDR5, and its data rate is 14 Gb / s (instead of 8 Gb / s) .
This takes the memory bandwidth to 336 GB / s (previously 192 GB / s) – it is the same value as the RTX 2060. According to Nvidia, the GTX 1660 Super offers a 10% to 20% increase in performance compared to predecessor in games like Fortnite and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.

In turn, the GTX 1650 Super it is a significant improvement over the GTX 1650 launched in April. There are 1,280 CUDA cores, base clock of 1,530 MHz and boost of 1,725 MHz; the predecessor has 896 cores and lower frequencies (1,485 MHz and 1,665 MHz boost).
We have 4 GB of RAM here, as in the previous generation, but it has been upgraded to GDDR6 technology with a higher rate of 12 Gb / s. The memory bandwidth increased by 50% to 192 GB / s.
According to Nvidia, the GTX 1650 Super has a 50% better performance than the standard GTX 1650: the processing power has grown to 4.4 teraflops in unique precision in the boost, against 3 teraflops from the predecessor. The TDP (maximum energy dissipated) also rose to 100 W.
The GTX 1650 Super and GTX 1660 Super graphics cards will not have the same performance in real-time ray tracing as an RTX or RTX Super, whose cores are made especially for this type of task. However, they are cheaper and provide good performance for games and graphics applications.
Nvidia launched the GeForce GTX 1660 Super in the US at a suggested price of $ 229; it will arrive “soon” in Brazil through partner manufacturers. In turn, the GTX 1650 Super will launch globally on November 22, with no set price – rumors say it will be $ 179.
