GTX 1660 Ti with i5-9600K benchmarks at Ultra Quality settings

It is clear that the GTX 1660 Ti 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 Ti against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the GTX 1660 Ti '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 Ti 's cooling is excellent at keeping it cool and under control. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2019 .

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 Ti , we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. In our synthetic benchmarks, the GTX 1660 Ti blows past the GTX 1060 6GB and, amazingly, even the GTX 1070 as well.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the GTX 1660 Ti 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, Just Cause 4, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Monster Hunter: World, Final Fantasy XV at 66 fps to 85 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 78 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD , we were able to play Hitman 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, World War Z, Far Cry New Dawn, Apex Legends at 67 fps to 76 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 72 fps.

If your CPU is i7-7700K then go for 2060 / 2070, when it's 2600K and you want to upgrade your current graphics card, then 1660 or 1660TI is good.

The RTX 2060 is more expensive than the GTX 1660 Ti, but it's well worth spending more than you initially wanted to. Why I recommend this is the RTX 2060 offers more performance for the money and would hold up longer over time before needing to be replaced. With the GTX 1660 Ti, you're likely to replace it sometime in the future if you wish to move up to 1440p and 4K gaming.

While the GTX 1660 Ti is capable of 1440p gaming, it's not as powerful as the GTX 1070 (though it does match it in some games), which itself can sometimes struggle with more demanding games at this resolution. The RTX 2060 makes mine meat of games and it costs less than 0 for all this additional headroom. You also have ray tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) enabled on the card.

Other advantages the RTX 2060 has over the GTX 1660 Ti include increased memory bandwidth. It's simply better in every way aside from the base and boost clock speeds, but you can overcome with this overclocking as RTX 2060 cards come with superior coolers.

I recommend the RTX 2060 over the GTX 1660 Ti, but it's not the best option for everyone. If your budget simply cannot stretch to cover the GPU and you need the card now, the GTX 1660 Ti is a solid card for 1080p and some 1440p gaming.

Is NVIDIA RTX 2060 worth the extra cost compared to GTX 1660 Ti?
