Nvidia has given the GeForce GTX 16-series graphics cards a ‘Super’ upgrade. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super is now available at a starting price of Rs 20,500 with the GTX 1650 Super coming out on 22 November.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super and 1650 Super features
A successor to the GTX 1660, the Super version of the graphics card is based on the same Turing architecture and aimed at 1440p gaming whereas the GTX 1650 Super will be targeted towards 1080p gaming. Nvidia claims that both Super variants are twice as powerful as the previous-generation GTX 10-series GPUs and offers up to 50 percent more performance compared to the original GTX 16-series GPUs, its predecessors.
The GTX 1660 Super and 1650 Super are the latest graphics cards to join the GTX 1660 Ti, GTX 1660, and the GTX 1650 in the GeForce GTX 16-series family. Based on the Turing architecture, the GTX 16-series don't have the ray tracing hardware as seen on the more expensive RTX 20-series of graphics cards.
Nvidia says that the graphics cards will be able to handle popular games like Apex Legends, Fortnite, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) with better performance. The new Nvidia driver brings graphics features such as ReShade for post-processing filters in games, Nvidia Ultra Low Latency for G-Sync monitors, Enhanced Customisable Image Sharpening, and support for the Turing-based NVENC video encoder for better performance in video streaming.
