GTX 1660 Ti with Pentium G870 1080p, 1440p, Ultrawide, 4K benchmarks at Ultra Quality

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. This combination between GTX 1660 Ti and Intel Pentium G870 @ 3.10GHz is going to cause serious bottlenecks in many games and cause severe FPS loss. 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 Borderlands 3, Anthem, Need For Speed: Heat, Just Cause 4, Gears of War 5 at 62 fps to 78 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 71 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play GreedFall, Hitman 2, F1 2019, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, World War Z at 64 fps to 72 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 68 fps.

League of Legends benchmark is horribly incorrect. It was most likely tested in the tutorial which doesn't even have whole map, against bots and not real players where game is actually played. FPS in team fights gets as low as 120-150 on maxed out settings. This benchmark is quite missleading

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.
