NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super wird am 29. Oktober veröffentlicht


Chinese website ITHome has new info on the release of NVIDA's GeForce GTX 1660 Super graphics cards. According to their website, the release is expected for October 22nd, which seems credible, considering NVIDIA always launches on a Tuesday. As expected, the card will be built around the Turing TU116 graphics processor, which also powers the GTX 1660 and GTX 1660 Ti. Shader counts should either be 1472, because NVIDIA wants to position their card between GTX 1660 (1408 cores) and GTX 1660 Ti (1536 cores). The memory size will be either 4 GB or 6 GB. Specifications of the memory are somewhat vague, it is rumored that NVIDIA's GTX 1660 Super will use GDDR6 chips, just like GTX 1660 Ti - the plain GTX 1660 uses GDDR5 memory. Another possibility is that shader count matches GTX 1660, and the only difference (other than clock speeds) is that GTX 1660 Super uses GDDR6 VRAM.

Der chinesische Preis wird voraussichtlich bei 1100 Yuan liegen, was sich in 150 US-Dollar verwandelt - überraschend niedrig, wenn man bedenkt, dass der Preis für GTX 1660 bei 210 US-Dollar und für GTX 1660 Ti bei 275 US-Dollar liegt. Möglicherweise passt NVIDIA die Preise an, um AMDs kommende Radeon RX 5500/5600-Serie vorwegzunehmen. Videocardz hat dieses Gerücht separat mit seinen Quellen bei ASUS Taiwan bestätigt, von denen erwartet wird, dass sie mindestens drei SKUs basierend auf dem neuen NVIDIA-Angebot einführen, darunter die Serien DUAL EVO, Phoenix und TUF3.
