Average Bench: 68.3% (105th of 715)

Based on 230,793 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]

Above average average bench

The Nvidia GTX 1660 averaged 31.6% lower than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This isn't a great result which indicates that there are much faster alternatives on the comparison list.

Strengths

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

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.

This is a great GPU. It performs extremely well for 1080p gaming. I have paired it with a Ryzen 3 2200G since 2019. I am on 60FPS and happily blasting enemies. I am in the process of upgrading to a new PC so I will soon be testing out a GTX 1660 alongside a Ryzen 5 5600x. EDIT: Paired with the Ryzen 5 5600x, this GPU provides amazing performance.

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
