does the GTX 1660 super work in P330 (2. Gen) - Funktioniert GTX 1660 super in P330 (2. Gen)

2020-06-27, 20:41 PM

Hi everybody,

 

I am a little bit confused at the moment because I just bought a P330 with the i7-9000K and bought additionally the nVidia GTX 1660 Super, because it was recommended for my use. Now I read, that this GPU might not be compatible with the P330. Lenovo recommends the Quadro RTX 4000 which shows the same connections to the motherboard as the GTX, so I d'ont understand the differences. Has anybody experience with the GTX 1660 and the P330. I'd prefere the GTX.

 

Thanks for reply!

 

 

 

Hallo zusammen, 

 

Ich bin gerade etwas unsicher, weil ich mir gerade das P330 mit i7-9000K gekauft habe und dazu die nVidia GTX 1660 Super, weil sie mir empfohlen wurde für meine Anwendungen. Nun habe ich gelesen, dass diese GPU nicht kompatibel mit dem P330 sein soll. Lenovo empfiehlt auch die Quadro RTX 4000, die die gleichen Connections an das Motherboard aufweist, wie die GTX. Hat jemand ERfahrung damit bzw. hat das jemand getestet. Ich wäre sehr dankbar für die Info, ich möchte nämlich gerne die GTX verbauen auf Grund des besseren Preis-Leistungsverhältnisses.

 

Danke für die Antwort

Per the PSref for that model, the P330 could have been ordered with a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, or a RTX 2070 or 2080, so as long as your PSU is the 400W version (the 250W PSU lacks a 6+2-pin aux PCIe power connector). I see no reason you should not be able to run your 1660 Super just fine. 

 

 

Cheers,

The 1660Ti was officially supported on the P330 gen2 Tower platform with the 400W PSU.  We did not qualify the 1660 Super card on that platform officially.  Most of the Super cards that we picked up in ThinkStation were of a design such that the card required 2.5 slots, and that card width tended to cause interference issues in the P330 Tower chassis.  I don't think there would be any issues from a power standpoint in supporting the reference design 1660Ti, but I would be concerned about mechanical interference issues if the card design was greater than the standard 2 slot design spec.  The rotating bay assembly in P330 Tower can be troublesome when trying to fit larger GPUs.

 

Also, just for reference there is a GPU/CPU power restriction that exists in the P330 gen2 Tower system.  If 95W CPUs are used, then we would not allow the system to be configured with higher end GPUs such as the 2070, 2080, or P5000 due to power concerns.  I think the 1660 Super would likely be OK since it's TDP is down closer to 125W from what I can tell, but I just wanted to highlight the restriction for other GPUs.
