GTX 1660 Super’s Value Proposition

The base GTX 1660 actually was very well situated with regard to pricing and competing products. Both the RX 580 and RX 590 from the red camp were close but not enough to warrant a purchase. Surprisingly, if you look at reviews the GTX 1660 Super has a negligible performance difference with the GTX 1660 Ti and this launch makes the Ti variant obsolete given the 40$ difference. At a $230 US launch price, the GTX 1660 Super delivers great value sweeping both the GTX 1660 and the GTX 1660 Ti at their current price points.

At $230 US, the GTX 1660 Super redefines performance in the sub 250$ budget market. Viable options from the Red camp will be non-existent unless we see new cards or the current ones undergo a massive price reduction. The base GTX 1660 will be affected as well and we will probably see a significant price cut on the card, as for the 1660 Ti, it will probably be phased out after stocks deplete.

Launch Dates

The ROG Strix, ASUS TUF Gaming, Dual EVO, and Phoenix GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER graphics cards
will be available worldwide from October 29th.
