From what NVIDIA has revealed, we believe the GTX 1660S will replace the GTX 1660.

The GTX 1650S, on the other hand, will slide in above the existing GTX 1650 as the GTX 1650 Ti that some suggested would be released this month.

Increased TDP For Both

The 1660 SUPER is essentially the GTX 1660 with much faster GDDR6 memory. So, it only incurs a small 5 watt increase in its TDP, from 120 watts to 125 watts.

The 1650 SUPER, on the other hand, uses a larger GPU with higher clock speeds. This increases its TDP by 33% over the GTX 1650, from 75 watts to 100 watts.
