1660 Super vs 1660 Ti: Which Is Better And Why? (2022)

Nvidia has been making headlines with the release of the new 1660 super vs 1660 Ti GPUs. Since they’re relatively new cards, many gamers wonder how different these two models are from one another. In this article, MedCPU will compare these two great cards to help you decide which is the best fit.

About Graphics Cards

A graphics card is hardware that enhances your computer’s graphics. It’s also known by the name GPU or video card. These are the features of Graphics Cards:

  • It can increase your system’s video memory.
  • It is required to improve visuals and video quality.
  • Can make your computer faster and more powerful by allowing you to do the most complex tasks without slowing your computer down.
  • Can be used for video editing, graphics production, and mining cryptocurrency.

The GTX 1660 Ti and 1660 Ti were launched in early 2019. Their apparent differences were their 9% differences in CUDA cores and the significantly faster memory of the Ti. The GTX 1660 Super is a more gap-bridging GPU than the 1660 Ti.

It has a slightly higher TDP, slightly higher clock speeds, and more memory. It has the same GPU core and CUDA core count as the standard 1660. This puts it slightly below the 1660 Ti in raw performance, but it’s a close race.

This results in an oddly stacked graphics card lineup. While the GTX 1660 Ti and 1660 Ti are the top and bottom cards in this trio, the GTX 1660 Super is as strong as the 1660 Ti. We’ve seen it perform as low as 2% less in some tests. This is a small difference, but it’s still significant. The Ti has a nearly $50 price difference, which is quite dramatic at this pricing level.

It all depends on what game you are playing. The 1660 Super is a better choice than the regular and Ti versions in Resident Evil 2. However, the Ti version can compete with the Super in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The two are almost identical in Battlefield V. Even though it performs slightly lower than the Super or Ti variants, it is consistent.

Although the prices of the various factory overclocked or cooled versions may be comparable, the GTX 1660 Super is significantly more expensive than the 1660 Ti, leaving it with very little breathing room.

Video editing

A graphics card can be used for rendering or video editing. Video editing is not as fast, efficient, or powerful as mining and gaming. GTX1660 ti is faster than GTX 1660super, but it has more CUDA Cores. GTX 1660 Super is faster than GTX 1660 Ti in memory clock speed, memory bandwidth, and improved clock speed.

GTX 1660 Super is more affordable and offers raw video editing performance. You can edit 4k videos with GTX 1660 Super.

Pricing

GTX 1660 Super was released after 1660 Ti. It was slightly less expensive than the Nvidia GeForce 1660 Ti. This graphics card cost $229 at launch. Due to COVID-19, however, raw materials were in short supply, increasing the price. The price rose to $810 as more people used it for gaming and mining.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti cost $279 at launch. This card was among the most affordable. Due to the COVID-19 shortage, its price rose to $980.

Conclusion

The  Nvidia GeForce 1660 ti is slightly faster, but there is no real difference in the specifications and performance. All in all, 1660 Super is a better deal than 1660 ti, and it’s a worthy upgrade if you’re planning to build a new PC. The 1660 ti and 1660 Super both offer excellent performance and similar pricing.

The only real difference comes down to clock speeds and heat generation, which is why we recommend the 1660 Super. Did you find this article helpful? Could you drop a comment below and let us know?
