Gigabyte GTX 1660 SUPER GAMING OC review: Top 1660 SUPER capable of leapfrogging challenges
By Charisse French 2020-02-07 2176 25
This year, Lao Huang's Dao Fa Xiu Xiaobian made my scalp numb. I just cut a new card. This is not the case. Four models have been born in the TU116 core alone. As can be seen in the picture above, there is little difference in specifications between GTX 1660 Super and GTX 1660 Ti. In theory, as long as manufacturers make more efforts on frequency and heat dissipation, it is not difficult to make 1660 Super exceed 1660 Ti.
Gigabyte GTX 1660 SUPER GAMING OC frequency has reached 1530 Ti 1860 MHz, does this frequency have the strength to exceed 1660 MHz? We have to keep looking down to find out.
Performance test: Super surpasses Ti, frame to win!
In the theoretical performance test, we chose the most commonly used test scenarios, FireStrike Ultra, FireStrike Extreme, Time Spy to test the performance of the graphics card DX 12, and Port Royal to test the performance of the light pursuit test.
The above test results are obvious. This gigabyte 1660 SUPER non-public graphics card has very strong performance, surpassing all tested graphics cards, and individual games can have a lead of more than 5 percent over the public version. Compared with the 1060 that many people still use, it is even more crushed, surpassing 34%, and the frame can win.
I don't know if all of you are amazed at this performance. This is already 1070 of the performance of that year, and it is also the strongest GTX 1660 SUPER.
User experience test-three fans are reliable
Compared with the performance of graphics cards, what kind of user experience graphics cards will bring may be what we pay more attention to when we buy graphics cards now. this link mainly examines the performance of graphics cards in several aspects that can directly affect our user experience, such as noise, temperature and power consumption control. In order to make the chart beautiful, the name of the graphics card has been abbreviated.
Power consumption test:
Gigabyte GTX 1660 SUPER frequency is so high, the performance is a little higher than 1660 Ti, so it is understandable that the power consumption is a little higher than 1660 Ti.
However, the power consumption of the graphics card is small, and a single 450W power supply can be used.
We use 3DMark's FireStrike Ultra stress test to conduct a rigorous audit of the graphics card, and the passing rate of 97% of the test is passed. Gigabyte has no problem with the stability of the graphics card, and it just passes the test with a score of 97.0% by default, indicating that the stability of the video card is reliable. Click on the big picture, we can find that the main peak frequency of the graphics card reached 1995MHz, this frequency is very high.
Horizontal comparison of stress test pass rate.
Gigabyte GTX 1660 SUPER temperature control ability does not need to be emphasized.
The noise of 53 decibels is so comfortable that it can hardly be heard unless you deliberately get close to it.
Comprehensive temperature and noise tests, have to praise gigabyte this Sanfeng fan radiator, the temperature can be so low, the noise is not loud, excellent performance.
0-20 decibels: very quiet, almost imperceptible; 20-40 decibels: quiet, like whispering; 40-60 decibels: general indoor conversation; 60-70 decibels: noisy: damaging nerves; 70-90 decibels: very noisy, nerve cells damaged. 90-100 decibels: increased noise, hearing loss; 100-120 decibels: unbearable, stay for a minute will temporarily cause deafness. Over 120dB: extremely deafness or total deafness; about 300dB or more: irreversible deafness in people with 20km.
The classic Hawkeye packing box that has been continued for several generations has a strong visual impact.
GAMING and AORUS series style is different, AORUS style is more publicity, domineering, GAMING is a low-key calm style. The length of the graphics card is 28cm, which is about 1cm longer than the 2080 public edition, and the control is OK.
The top GIGABYTE LOGO,RGB belief lights are displayed here.
8pin power alone is quite sufficient for a graphics card with only 125W of TGP.
The small gigabyte English LOGO, at Goldfinger is obviously a non-public version of PCB.
The backplane has become the standard of the GAMING OC series. In addition, the backplane can not only protect the graphics card, but also play a beautiful and auxiliary role in cooling the graphics card.
The video interface of the video card is sufficient for three DP+ and one HDMI,.
Graphics card PCB components are still very dense, which is even more reassuring. However, the video card PCB is shorter than the backplane, resulting in an extension on the right side of the backplane.
The graphics card is powered by 4x2 phase and uses Meguiar GDDR6 memory, and the equivalent frequency is 14000MHz.
PCB and radiator.
Three 6mm pure copper heat pipes, which are in direct contact with the GPU core. All kinds of heat guides are affixed to the places where the radiator is in contact with the video memory and power supply, which effectively takes care of the heating parts of the video card.
Zooming in to look at the details, the heat conduction paste was damaged in the disassembly process, and it turned out to be complete.
Large area heat dissipation fins, the part where the heat pipe is in contact with the radiator is nickel-plated, so generally speaking, the material used in this set of radiators is reassuring enough.
Gigabyte GTX 1660 SUPER GAMING OC successfully overcompeted the big brother GTX 1660 Ti, and RGB belief lamp in the core of TU116. Its excellent heat dissipation performance makes it stand out among many GTX 1660 Super non-public. It is an excellent super public version of GTX 1660 SUPER. .
