Our Verdict: At 1440p, GTX 1060 6GB 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 48% for 1440p gaming. For 1080p games, upgrading from GTX 1060 6GB to GTX 1660 Ti is not worth it if targeting 60 frames per second.
