NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super utgivelser 29. oktober

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.

Den kinesiske prisfastsettelsen er forventet rundt 1100 Yuan, som konverteres til $ 150 - overraskende lav, med tanke på at GTX 1660-retails til $ 210 og GTX 1660 Ti er priset til $ 275. Kanskje justerer NVIDIA prisene for å forhindre AMDs kommende Radeon RX 5500/5600-serie. Videocardz har separat bekreftet dette ryktet med sine kilder på ASUS Taiwan, som antas å lansere minst tre SKUer basert på det nye NVIDIA-tilbudet, blant dem DUAL EVO, Phoenix og TUF3-serien.
