If you thought the 1600 series was a strange naming scheme for Nvidia when it launched at the start of the year then you are really going to think it is weird with the SUPER designation that a lot of Nvidia’s lineup has been getting as they have been refreshing things. The GTX 1660 SUPER launched a few weeks ago. Well, today I’m going to check out the GTX 1660 SUPER Gaming OC from Gigabyte. The GTX 1660 super isn’t a huge change from the previous 1660, but it does have GDDR6 over the original GTX 1660’s GDDR5 and offers a rare look at what the newer memory offers for performance when everything else is the same. The Gaming OC adds an overclock up to 1860 MHz on the core clock from the 1785 MHz reference. So I’m excited to see how the Gaming OC performs compared to a few other cards new and old in that range.

As always I do confirm clock speeds with the specifications using GPUz. So the reference speed of the GTX 1660 SUPER is 1785 MHz, the Gaming OC comes in at 1860 MHz and that can be seen as the boost clock in GPUz. Also for reference our original GTX 1660 from Zotac runs at the stock 1785 MHz in the comparison testing. GPUz also documents the driver used (which was the 1650 SUPER launch driver) and the BIOS version of the card should any questions come up later as well.
