GTX 1660 with Phenom II X2 550 1080p, 1440p, Ultrawide, 4K benchmarks at Ultra Quality

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. This combination between GTX 1660 and AMD Phenom II X2 550 is going to cause serious bottlenecks in many games and cause severe FPS loss.

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.
