Overall Combination Score 80/100 84/100 4 (5%)
Our Verdict: At 1440p, RX 580 can hit 50-60 frames per second on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. Whereas GTX 1660 Ti can hit 50-60 frames per second at maximum settings. The GTX 1660 Ti is faster by 37% for 1440p gaming. For 1080p games, upgrading from RX 580 to GTX 1660 Ti is not worth it if targeting 60 frames per second.

RX 580 vs GTX 1660 Ti with i7-7700K vs i7-8700K at 4K and ultra vs ultra settings

AMD Radeon RX 580 / i7-7700K

At 1440p, RX 580 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the RX 580 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 580 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the RX 580 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti / i7-8700K
