Written by Michael Larabel in Graphics Cards on 4 November 2019. Page 10 of 10. 9 Comments

The recorded GPU power consumption of the EVGA GTX 1660 SUPER through the entire range of tests carried out was 10 Watts at idle, a 98 Watt average under load, and a peak power draw of 129 Watts -- roughly aligning to the 125 Watt GTX 1660 SUPER rating from NVIDIA. This average power draw was comparable to the Radeon RX 580 but slightly higher than the 88 Watt average of the GTX 1660 Ti.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER had an average core temperature under load of 59 degrees and a peak of 67 degrees.

When looking at the geometric mean across all the Linux gaming benchmarks carried out for this article, the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER yielded 1.15x the performance of the GTX 1660 and was roughly in-line with the GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1070. Compared to the GTX 1060, the GTX 1660 SUPER delivered 1.34x the performance on Ubuntu Linux. The GTX 1660 SUPER did come out just a few percent faster than the Radeon RX 590 overall. Overall, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER is a strong contender if looking for a Linux-friendly graphics card at just above the $200 USD price point and not minding the use of proprietary drivers.
