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 SUPER can hit 50-60 frames per second at maximum settings. The GTX 1660 SUPER is faster by 30% for 1440p gaming. For 1080p games, upgrading from RX 580 to GTX 1660 SUPER is not worth it if targeting 60 frames per second.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER

The good news is, with the release of the GTX 1660 Ti, the GTX 1660 SUPER 's price is getting more discount. NVIDIA ’s xx60 cards have always been defined by entry-level prices with performance that knocks on the door of mid-range graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Turing graphics card inside the GTX 1660 SUPER, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the GTX 1660 SUPER consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 1060 6GB, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Anthem, Need For Speed: Heat, Just Cause 4, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War 5 at 62 fps to 75 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 71 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play GreedFall, Hitman 2, World War Z, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, F1 2019 at 61 fps to 66 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 64 fps.

AMD Radeon RX 580

AMD ’s xx80 cards have always been defined by mid-range prices with performance that knocks on the door of high-end graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the GCN 4.0 graphics card inside the RX 580, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The RX 580 is much more cheaper than the RX 480 as it costs $ 229. Compare this to the RX 480, which came originally at a price of $ 400. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA closest equivalent card is the GTX 1060 6GB which costs $ 254.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RX 580 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the RX 480, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Final Fantasy XV, Apex Legends, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, F1 2019, Forza Horizon 4 at 62 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Fallout 76, World War Z, Battlefield V at 64 fps to 70 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.
