Good ol' Videocardz has done it again. WhyCry has leaked that NVIDIA has apparently told the press that both GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER and GTX 1650 SUPER models are coming very soon. The Geforce GTX 1660 SUPER is launching next week on the 29th of October while the GTX 1650 SUPER is launching next month on the 22nd of November. The Geforce GTX 1660 SUPER and GTX 1650 SUPER are both going to feature GDDR 6 memory and will have higher clock rates than their vanilla counterparts as well.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 and GTX 1650 graphics cards launch dates confirmed
While both cards will feature GDDR6 memory, not all GDDR6 is born equal and the memory clock on the GTX 1660 SUPER is going to be much higher than the GTX 1650 SUPER. According to Videocardz, the GTX 1660 SUPER is going to be clocked at 14 Gbps while the GTX 1650 SUPER s going to be clocked at 12 Gbps.
The GTX 1660 SUPER also has had its specifications confirmed. It will feature 1408 CUDA cores clocked at a turbo of 1785 MHz (for a theoretical peak compute of 5 TFLOPS). Considering NVIDIA cards usually overclock themselves higher than the rated turbo, you are likely going to see clocks much higher than this. A 192-bit bus is going to be fed by a 14 Gbps GDDR6 (6GB in total) memory for a total bandwidth of 336 GB/s. The graphics card is going to be priced at $229 USD and will be launching on the 29 of October.
The GTX 1650 SUPER, on the other hand, is still a bit grey right now. Thanks to WhyCry, we do know it's going to feature 12 Gbps GDDR6 memory (a total of 4GB) coupled with a 128-bit bus. Total bandwidth is going to be 192 GB/s and the launch date is 22nd November. Considering the pricing old GTX 1650 was $149, we are expecting the GTX 1650 SUPER to be priced at $159 - since that's the premium NVIDIA seems to be charging for what is essentially an upgrade to GDDR6 memory.
