Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB Review: Turing Without the RTX

Gaming at 1920 x 1080

By Nvidia’s own suggestion, GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is designed for high performance at 1920 x 1080 with anti-aliasing enabled. Although we found the card’s frame rates to be perfectly playable using higher resolutions, an emphasis on 120+ FPS would keep most gamers using FHD displays at this price point.

On average, GeForce GTX 1660 Ti lands a couple of percentage points away from GeForce GTX 1070 across our suite. We’d make the claim that newer games put the two cards closer together in the benchmarks. However, GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is slightly faster in The Witcher 3, and that’s an almost four-year-old title.

AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 56 beats the new GeForce on average. But it’s also typically quite a bit more expensive.

    In that review they added a link to this review, which should have been the initial link/review for this post IMO:

    Yea this is odd, it should of been 1660 ti > 1660 Super >1650 Super over the last few months.

    Edit: Here's a 1660 ti TH review from May.

    I also noticed that the i5 9600K review article says it was posted today, and has a new comments section.

    That EVGA GPU is one of the cutest-looking GPU I've seen in a while, I'm thinking of picking one up just from the way it looks
