GTX 1660 with i7-980 benchmarks at Ultra Quality settings

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 Intel Core i7-980 @ 3.33GHz is going to cause serious bottlenecks in many games and cause severe FPS loss.
