Our Verdict: The price of TITAN Xp is ridiculous. Upgrading from GTX 1660 to TITAN Xp is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware. The price/performance ratio is much better for GTX 1660 .

GTX 1660 vs TITAN Xp with i7-8700K vs i7-7700K at 4K and ultra vs ultra settings

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 / i7-8700K

It is clear that the GTX 1660 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 GTX 1660 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the GTX 1660 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. With regards to max load temperature, the GTX 1660 's cooling is excellent at keeping it cool and under control.

NVIDIA TITAN Xp / i7-7700K

In terms of cost, pricing clearly is a genuine issue here and the price of TITAN Xp is simply ridiculous. It is worth noting that the TITAN Xp is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the TITAN Xp 's 12288 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2017 .
