The GALAX GeForce GTX 1660 Super (1-Click OC)

GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER cards are only be available from NVIDIA board partners as custom cards, without a Founders Edition reference design.

One of the first examples is the GALAX GeForce GTX 1660 Super (1-Click OC), and we managed to get our grubby hands on an early sample!

The GALAX GeForce GTX 1660 Super hews quite close to the reference specifications, with one exception.

It has a 15 MHz higher boost clock out-of-the-box, with a further 15 MHz enabled by its 1-Click OC feature. This gives it a maximum boost clock of 1815 MHz.

Here is a table comparing the GALAX GeForce GTX 1660 Super, with the reference GTX 1660 SUPER, the GTX 1660 Ti and the regular GTX 1660.
