If you’ve been debating whether or not to acquire a mainstream video card for 1080p gaming, the GeForce GTX 1660 Super could be the catalyst you need. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER is quite comparable to the GTX 1660 it replaces. The biggest differences are in the memory configuration, which has been updated to quicker GDDR6 technology in the former. The GTX 1660 SUPER’s performance should improve by roughly 10% as a result of this.
We tested it in Zotac’s $239 GeForce GTX 1660 Super Twin Fan configuration, and while it’s only a little upgrade over the non-Super GTX 1660, it’s still powerful enough to keep esports fans and 1080p-bound AAA gamers playing late into the night.
The new GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER isn’t just about performance; it’s also about adding additional value to the equation. In this review, we’ll examine at ZOTAC’s new GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER and see how it performs.

- Core Clock: 1785 Mhz
- Memory Type: GDDR6
- Memory Bus: 192 bit
- Memory Size: 6 GB
- Card Bus: PCI-E 3.0X16
- Power Connector: 1 X 8 pin
- TDP: 125 W
Design of Zotac GeForce GTX 1660 Super Twin
The ZOTAC GAMING GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER Twin Fan is a relatively small graphics card. This double-slot-width card has a black plastic shroud that carries two fans inside a housing that is 6.8 inches long, comparable to any other card in the Zotac Twin Fan series. That’s a little card by most measures, and it’s small enough to slot into many compact setups if desired.
Three DisplayPort 1.4b connections and one HDMI 2.0 port are located on the rear of the board. When we examine the card more closely, we can see that the GPU core, memory chips, and MOSFETs are all in direct contact with the heat sink. This implies that any excess heat created by these critical components will be dealt with. Three heat pipes have been added to the heatsink, which will aid to properly disperse heat away from the GPU core. If you have an older monitor, DVI is also missing.
We wanted to see if there was a performance difference between the new GTX 1660 SUPER and the 8-month-old GTX 1660 in our testing. Because the GTX 1660 SUPER is likely to cost a little more than the GTX 1660, it’ll be a strong indicator of which graphics card offers greater value to customers. In terms of technology, we can observe how much performance improvement can be achieved simply by improving video memory technology.
We have also run some tests on pc games to find out the performance and speed of GeForce GTX 1660 Super Twin. In Final Fantasy XV, During the 4K test, the GTX 1660 Super actually outperformed the GTX 1660 Ti, indicating that this game in particular is better at taking use of the faster memory frequency on offer.
Now if we talk about overclocking, the performance of this card is quite appreciating. Because Super versions already reflect the top-end of the power curve a given GPU chip can handle, there may be less space for overclocking. But there was a pleasant surprise in store: the Zotac 1660 Super Twin Fan remained steady well past the point where I expected it to begin to wobble during our overclocking testing.
