The 'SUPER' variant of Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 GPU is rumored to be launching on October 29, and as is often the case with a product launch, a few performance numbers almost always manage to pop up before the official embargo is lifted. The 1660 SUPER is no exception with the GPU seemingly making an appearance in the Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition benchmark database. The graphics card was measured at 2560x1440 resolution using the high quality preset. It has managed to score 4794 points making it significantly faster than the vanilla 1660 and is nearly as fast as the GTX 1660 Ti.
- GTX 1660 Super (4794 points) vs GTX 1660(4165 points): approx. +15%
- GTX 1660 Super (4794 points) vs GTX 1660 Ti(4879 points): approx. -1.8%
The 1660 SUPER allegedly has the same number of CUDA cores as its non-Super counterpart, so most of the improvement seen here can be attributed to the higher bandwidth provided by the addition of GDDR6 memory. It is important, however, to note that such gains may not be seen in every title.
Unfortunately, Final Fantasy XV tends to favor Nvidia GPUs quite heavily so it's best not to draw any comparisons with Radeon cards from this benchmark.
