Why is there a need for a third card in the exact same tier is beyond me. Calling this one "Super" is literately the equivalent of flame decals on a car, Nvidia is pioneering ricer video cards.
This should be a move to refresh a product with more relevant memory type. I don't think the GTX 1660 GDDR5 card is going to stay around for much longer.
One thing im a bit unsure about is the future of the GTX 1660 Ti. The new GTX 1660 Super might get a 249$ Price tag while retiring both the standard and the Ti models of the GTX 1660.

Did you just call Optimus Prime's decal "ricer"?

Get out of the internet man. Those decepticon propaganda is starting to affect you.
