Today we share full, confirmed specifications of the upcoming SUPER series.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 16 SUPER Series
NVIDIA has provided the full specifications of smaller Turing Super series to the press under an embargo. The new series will utilize new GDDR6 memory technology as opposed to GDDR5 found in a lower-spec GTX 16 variants.
The picture above is a mockup. There are no Founders Edition/reference designs of the GTX 16 SUPER series.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER – 5 Watts more for GDDR6 support
The GTX 1660 SUPER will feature 12nm Turing TU116 graphics processor with 1408 CUDA cores, 88 TMUs, and 48 ROPs. This model will sport 6GB GDDR6 memory across a 192-bit memory bus. This corresponds to 336 GB/s of maximum theoretical bandwidth. That’s even more than GTX 1660 Ti (thanks to 14 Gbps memory chips).
The card will not be available as a reference design, the GTX 1660S can only be purchased from NVIDIA board partners. For that reason, NVIDIA is not providing the specs for display and power connectors in the spec sheet. Although it is mentioned that it will require at least one 8-pin power connector.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER – Actually a good upgrade?
The rumors pointed towards 1024-1152 CUDA specs, but in reality, the GTX 1650 SUPER will be equipped with 1280 CUDA cores, which is the same as the GTX 1060 series. This model will be based on TU116 GPU.
NVIDIA’s cheapest SUPER model will have 4GB GDDR6 memory onboard. The card will keep 1650’s 128-bit memory bus and 32 ROP count. The higher specs will come at a cost of 25W higher TDP, as the GTX1650S will now require 100W of power. This model will also be clocked 50-60 MHz higher than the non-Super variant.
TURING NVENC Support
Since GTX 1650S is also based on TU116 processor, both cards will support Turing NVENC encoder. This is a new feature as GTX 1650 non-SUPER was utilizing VOLTA NVENC encoder.
NVIDIA will launch GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER on October 29th at the price of 229 USD. The GTX 1650 SUPER will be available next month, on November 22nd. NVIDIA has not yet provided pricing information for this SKU.
