Average Bench: 62.9% (52nd of 643)

Based on 98,099 user benchmarks.  Device: 10DE 2184 Model: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660

NVIDIA's GTX 1660 follows hot on the heels of last month's release of the GTX 1660 Ti. As the name would suggest, the 1660 is a slightly scaled back version of the 1660 Ti. Both feature NVIDIAs's new TU116 Turing based die, have 6GB of VRAM, are without RTX cores and have a power draw (TDP) of 120W. The main differences arise from the number of CUDA cores: the 1660 has 1408 whilst the 1660 Ti has 1536, and memory bandwidth: the 1660 can deliver 8 Gpbs using ubiquitous GDDR5 (as featured in the GTX 1060 3GB and 6GB) versus the 1660 Ti which can deliver 12 Gpbs using newer, faster and dearer GDDR6. The 1660 also features Turing NVENC which is far more efficient than CPU encoding and alleviates the need for casual streamers to use a dedicated stream PC. Early benchmarks show that the GTX 1660 has about a 20% lower effective speed than the 1660 Ti, but with an entry price of $219 USD, the 1660 is also about 20% cheaper. Further, the 1660 has a 12% effective speed advantage over the ~$230 USD 6GB 1060 and a similar real world effective speed to AMD's $265 USD RX 590. NVIDIAs strategy of offering great value Turing products at all price tiers can only be good for competition and consumers. [Mar '19 GPUPro]

Let's hope Nvidia's upcoming gpu lineup is actually an upgrade for the $200 price segment. And not a renamed gtx 2050.

Go for the 1660 Super instead if the price is not too different. The 1660 Super offers much better Async compute performance due to increased memory bandwidth

Another great value card from Nvidia, performing a tad better than the 590. With the 1650 coming soon, they will be the go-to choice on every segment.

Decent budget graphics card. Currently it is usually ~ $10-$20 [usd] more to get the 1660 Super variant which performs closer to a 1660 Ti ($60-$70 more) [usd] I got it for ~ $185 [usd] as an Open Box at Microcenter. 4/5 Stars - Decent 1080p performance for games such as Jedi: Fallen Order. Gets up to 100% utilization playing SWBF2 with Ultra settings on a 1080p 60Hz monitor. Thanks for reading.

With some basic overclocking I this card can be about the level of a 1660 Ti, and beat an RX 590. I think its a pretty good option if you want solid 1080p and even 1440p gaming without breaking the bank.
