Based on the Turing architecture, the PNY Technologies GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER XLR8 Gaming Overclocked Edition Graphics Card provides improvements in performance, memory bandwidth, and power efficiency over its predecessor, the high-performance Pascal architecture.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs, such as DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, and DVI-D. The GTX 1660 SUPER is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU’s 1408 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA and other APIs. For cooling, PNY implemented a dual fan cooler.
NVIDIA GPU Boost 4.0
Boosts the card’s clock speed in real-time based on the target temperature. If the card is running below the set target temperature, GPU Boost 4.0 will increase the clock speed to improve performance. The target temperature can be reset depending on your preference so you can have the card run more quietly for everyday tasks and older games, and run at full tilt during intense high-resolution gaming sequences.
With Ansel, gamers can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction and from any vantage point within a gaming world. They can capture screenshots at up to 32 times the screen resolution, and then zoom in where they choose without losing fidelity. With photo-filters, they can add effects in real-time before taking the shot. And they can capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing in a VR headset or Google Cardboard.
NVIDIA’s parallel computing platform which enables an increase in computing performance by harnessing the parallel nature of GPU processing. CUDA-compatible applications can assign intensive parallel computing tasks, such as real-time video rendering, to the GPU to process, freeing up the computer’s CPU to run other tasks.
When used with a monitor that has G-SYNC hardware installed, the monitor’s refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card’s output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-SYNC is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
