NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER Linux Gaming Performance

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
Gaming

Last week NVIDIA announced the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER as their newest Turing "SUPER" graphics card coming in at $229+ USD and delivering around 1.5x faster performance than the GeForce GTX 1060. For those wondering about the Linux gaming performance potential for this graphics card, here are our initial tests of this new graphics card using the EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER.

On launch day I purchased the EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER for carrying out these Linux benchmarks. The EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER (06G-P4-1068-KR) was in-stock on launch day and indeed hitting the $229 USD retail price. This graphics card features a dual fan setup and metal backplate. While the GTX 1660 SUPER reference specifications put the boost clock at 1785MHz, the EVGA model does advertise a possible 1830MHz boost clock frequency. The rest of the specs including 14Gbps 6GB GDDR6 video memory are in-line with the GTX 1660 SUPER specifications.

Cheat sheet for Linux users and permissions

The Linux operating system is a true multi-user OS, meaning it assumes that there's data on every computer that should be protected, whether in the interest of privacy, security, or system integrity. Linux uses file ownership and permissions to manage file and folder access. For administrators who deal with different user environments all day, this system is easy to understand, calculate, and control. Read more

LAS 2019: A GNOME + KDE conference

Thanks to the sponsorship of GNOME, I was able to attend the Linux App Summit 2019 held in Barcelona. This conference was hosted by two free desktop communities such as GNOME and KDE. Usually the technologies used to create applications are GTK and QT, and the objective of this conference was to present ongoing application projects that run in many Linux platforms and beyond on both, desktops and on mobiles. The ecosystem involved, the commercial part and the U project manager perspective were also presented in three core days. I had the chance to hear some talks as pictured: Adrien Plazas, Jordan and Tobias, Florian are pictured in the first place. The keynote was in charge of Mirko Boehm with the title “The Economics of FOSS”, Valentin and Adam Jones from Freedesktop SDK and Nick Richards where he pointed out the “write” strategy. You might see more details on Twitter. [...] It was lovely to see again several-years GNOME’s members as Florian, who is always supporting my ideas for the GNOME games [...] Thanks again GNOME, I will finish my reconstruction image GTK code I started in this event to make it also in parallel using HPC machines in the near future.
