GTX 1660 SUPER Takes Baton from GTX 1060, The World’s Most Popular GPU
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the latest addition to its GeForce® GTX® family of gaming GPUs, NVIDIA today unveiled the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER -- the successor to its most successful GPU ever -- as well as the GeForce 1650 SUPER.
Designed to deliver even more horsepower for today’s most popular games, including Fortnite, PUBG and Apex Legends, the pair deliver up to 2X the performance of the prior generation GTX 10-series GPUs and up to 50 percent more performance over the original GTX 16-series. The new GPUs are powered by the Turing architecture and ship with superfast GDDR6 memory.
Along with the new GPUs, NVIDIA is releasing its latest Game Ready Driver, which delivers Day 0 support for hundreds of AAA titles and four new gaming features -- ReShade, NVIDIA Ultra Low Latency, Enhanced Customizable Image Sharpening, and Turing Encoder -- which are described below.
ReShade Filters Come to GeForce Experience
With over 3 million downloads last year, ReShade benefits from a vibrant modding community that creates amazing post-processing shaders for PC gaming. With the latest Game Ready Driver and GeForce Experience update, GeForce gamers can tap into hundreds of ReShade filters and easily apply them in their favorite games using NVIDIA Freestyle or Ansel.
Ultra Low Latency Mode for G-SYNC Displays: Responsive, Smooth, Tear-Free Gaming
The NVIDIA Ultra Low Latency (NULL) mode has been enhanced with support for G-SYNC variable rate technology support, so gamers can enjoy the tear-free visuals provided by G-SYNC, along with the benefit of quick response time that lower latency provides in games.
Enhanced Customizable Image Sharpening For Hundreds of Games
NVIDIA has also integrated an improved image-sharpening filter in the NVIDIA Control Panel for even faster performance and support for all DirectX 9, 11 and 12 games. It has adjustable sharpening sliders and offers a per-game profile, so gamers can custom tailor the level of sharpness for each of their favorite games.
Turing Encoder Built for Gaming and Broadcasting
Designed for gamers who like to stream on platforms like Twitch and Mixer, the new GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER and 1650 SUPER GPUs feature the latest Turing Encoder (NVENC), which enables professional-level image quality and maximum game performance. With support from top streaming applications like Open Broadcaster Software and XSplit, GeForce users can benefit from new and improved NVENC integrations, making it easier than ever to start streaming their gameplay.
Specifications and Additional Features
The new GPUs take advantage of many of Turing’s modern architecture innovations, including concurrent floating point and integer operations, a unified cache architecture and deliver turbocharged performance using adaptive shading technology.
The 1660 SUPER and 1650 SUPER GPUs use new GDDR6 memory running at 14 Gbps and 12 Gbps. They are designed to play games at 1440p and 1080p, respectively, and have boost clocks of almost 1.8 GHz, which can be easily overclocked for even more performance. They also support GeForce Experience™, the NVIDIA gaming application that provides unique, easy-to-use in-game features such as:
- NVIDIA Highlights — automatically captures the best gaming moments. Close to 50 games already support Highlights, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Fortnite, and PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS.
- NVIDIA Ansel — lets gamers take stunning in-game photos in more than 80 games and share their favorite photos and participate in monthly photo contests on Shot with GeForce.
- NVIDIA Freestyle — lets gamers customize the appearance of more than 650 games using post-processing technology. The latest filters can convert gameplay or photos into an oil painting or watercolor, or deliver an appearance that is right out of a movie or a retro 1980s environment.
