Our Verdict: The GTX 1660 is faster by 43% for 1440p gaming. However, GTX 1650 is still capable of producing more than 60 frames per second. For 1080p games, upgrading from GTX 1650 to GTX 1660 is not worth it if targeting 60 frames per second.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650

The GTX 1660 might be the entry-level flagship of the latest Turing set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most budget PC gamers. On the other hand, the GTX 1650 is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 149. NVIDIA ’s xx50 cards have always been defined by budget prices with performance that knocks on the door of entry-level graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Turing graphics card inside the GTX 1650, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

Spec for spec, this GTX 1650 leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the GTX 1050, by boasting 2 % more fps. The GTX 1650 has 4 GB RAM compared to the GTX 1050 's 3 GB video memory.

Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The GTX 1650 consistently delivers great frame rate increases over the GTX 1050, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and it really justifies an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Fallout 76, Battlefield V, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Resident Evil 2, Strange Brigade at 63 fps to 74 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 69 fps.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660

The good news is, with the release of the GTX 1660 Ti, the GTX 1660 '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, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

The GTX 1660 is much more cheaper than the GTX 1060 6GB as it costs $ 220. Compare this to the GTX 1060 6GB, which came originally at a price of $ 254. Meanwhile, the closest equivalent card is the which costs. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the GTX 1660 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 Need For Speed: Heat, Just Cause 4, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War 5, Monster Hunter: World at 67 fps to 72 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 70 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, F1 2019, Far Cry New Dawn, Apex Legends, Resident Evil 2 at 62 fps to 70 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.
