The rumor mill has Nvidia might prepping a couple of new graphics cards aimed at budget gamers. If the latest rumors are true, both a GeForce GTX 1660 Super and 1650 Ti are right around the corner.

MyDrivers.com claims the 1660 Super will get a boost over the regular 1660 from using faster 14Gbps GDDR6 memory in place of 8Gbps GDDR5 memory. However, it will stick with 6GB of memory, and feature the same number of stream processors/CUDA cores (1,408), according to the rumor.

It’s unknown if the GPU clocks would differ as well. A bump to faster memory would would help the 1660 performance , which lacks of GDDR6 memory at this time.

Rumored specs compare

  • 1660 Ti—1,536 CUDA cores, 6GB GDDR6 at 12Gbps, 192-bit bus, $279 MSRP
  • 1660 Super—1,408 CUDA cores, 6GB GDDR6 at 14Gbps, 192-bit bus, ??? MSRP
  • 1660—1,408 CUDA cores, 6GB GDDR5 at 8Gbps, 192-bit bus, $219 MSRP

Do note the rumor mill claims the 6GB of GDDR6 on the 1660 Super would be even faster than the 1660 Ti. The 1660 Ti would still hold the overall advantage due to the higher number of CUDA cores and potentially faster GPU clocks, but Nvidia still risks cannibalizing sales, depending on how the performance shakes out.

Here hoping most of this comes true!
