Average Bench: 79.5% (42nd of 617)

Based on 9,358 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. 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]

Seems like Excellent value i may still get a Ti 33% more money for 20 percent more performance seems like a waste. Seems like a good overclocker aswell im amazed by the performance on apex legends.

Being the most value for performance GPU ever right now, this GPU is very recommended for very-budget conscious user who is looking to game at 1080p Medium-High (Ultra is doable on some or older games). The only cons is 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM which is less than 8GB recommended for playing recent blockbuster games and is slower than the recent GDDR6 VRAM. Despite that, the pros (excellent value for performance) outweights cons of this GPU.

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.
